Antimicrobial resistance is a global problem. The CDC estimates that greater than two million people are infected with antibiotic-resistant organisms resulting in approximately 23,000 death annually. The White House has written a national action plan for combating antibiotic-resistant bacteria and the World Health Organization has disease-specific programs designed to prevent or slow the emergence of antimicrobial resistance globally. Antibiotic stewardship programs are designed to prevent or slow the emergence of antimicrobial resistance. These programs are common in academic medical centers; however, at least 50% of acute care hospitals in the U.S. do not have a program. This webinar will examine antibiotic stewardship programs in the “post-antibiotic era” and their successes and failures in lowering antimicrobial resistance.
