The COVID-19 pandemic continues to pose a critical health crisis in many countries.
Pneumonia remains a common manifestation of COVID-19, and pneumonia with respiratory
failure is a significant cause of COVID-19 deaths. Bacterial coinfections are common
in patients with respiratory viral infections and are associated with increased serious
morbidity and mortality.
This three-webinar series will increase the knowledge, competence, and performance of pharmacists in the recognition and management of bacterial pneumonia in patients with COVID-19. These activities seek to raise awareness of the significant impact of bacterial pneumonia in patients with COVID-19, the role of rapid diagnostics in these disease states, key antimicrobial stewardship strategies, and to equip pharmacists with the knowledge necessary to design a therapeutic plan for a patient with bacterial pneumonia and COVID-19.
Webinar #1 will focus on overview and diagnosis*, webinar #2 will discuss antimicrobial stewardship and treatment**, and webinar #3 will include all faculty and a moderator for a best practices roundtable† discussion.
The target audience for this activity includes pharmacists, including community pharmacists, ambulatory care, and infectious diseases pharmacists, pharmacy directors, and other pharmacy professionals responsible for the treatment and management of bacterial pneumonia in patients with COVID-19.
