Activity Description

Infectious diseases practice is undergoing significant change in the management of nosocomial bacterial pneumonia. Categorized as HABP (hospital-acquired bacterial pneumonia) or VABP (ventilator-associated bacterial pneumonia), rapidly evolving drug resistance has had profound implications on disease progression and mortality. Rising threats from multi-drug resistant organisms, such as Pseudomonas aeruginosa, has created a need for thoughtful stewardship and use of combination antibiotics most likely to provoke a meaningful response. This activity will discuss the prevention and treatment of HABP/VABP for clinical and infectious diseases pharmacists. Special attention will be given to available and emerging treatment options, along with pertinent patient considerations and monitoring strategies.

Learning Objectives

The target audience for this activity includes pharmacists, nurses and physicians. At the completion of this activity, the participant will be able to:

  • Describe key guideline-based recommendations for adults with hospital-acquired and ventilator-associated pneumonia.
  • Discuss the latest antimicrobial treatment strategies for managing patients with pneumonia caused by multi-drug resistant organisms.
  • Explain strategies and resources for managing patients with unique clinical scenarios (such as renal impairment) using new and old antibiotics.
  • Identify strategies to incorporate underutilized antimicrobial stewardship concepts into routine clinical practice.
