Activity Description

Starting an antimicrobial stewardship program, or advancing an established one, can be a daunting task. This activity will provide an overview of tools for planning and implementing new and existing antimicrobial stewardship programs. This includes elements of strategic planning, self-assessment, and determining both long term and daily priorities. Examples of initiatives to achieve the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Core Elements of Antimicrobial Stewardship Programs will be reviewed. The activity will also share tips for engaging team members and key stakeholders in the planning and implementation process.

This is a featured CE activity on the Society of Infectious Diseases Pharmacists Education Center (SIDPEC) website. SIDPEC is the educational hub of the Society of Infectious Diseases Pharmacists (SIDP). The SIDPEC portal provides educational activities on infectious disease pharmacotherapy for clinical pharmacists, health‐systems pharmacists, community pharmacists, and other allied‐health disciplines.
