"Combating Resistance: Getting Smart About Antibiotics"
Tuesday, November 19, 2013
1-2 p.m., EST
Watch the live broadcast at either of the following links:
Antibiotics are the most important tool we have to combat life-threatening bacterial diseases, but antibiotic use, especially when not needed, has unintended consequences. Antibiotic resistance is becoming an increasingly common problem, resulting in over 2 million illnesses and 23,000 deaths each year among Americans and costing $30 billion in the United States annually.
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.
