This session of Grand Rounds will explore how improved prescribing practices and policies can not only help reduce rates of antibiotic resistance, but also improve individual patient outcomes. The session will also provide insight into which interventions, such as patient and provider education and, clinical decision support, will be key in reaching the goal of reducing unnecessary antibiotic use.
Future Grand Rounds topics include advanced molecular detection and oral health/fluoride.
