DESCRIPTION

Finding strategies to help reduce the rising tide of overpriced and antimicrobial-resistant bacteria is becoming a top priority of today’s clinical laboratories. Join AACC and LabLeaders as Dr. Nam Tran discusses the growing crisis of antimicrobial resistance and the regulatory requirements for antimicrobial stewardship.

The webinar highlights how procalcitonin and molecular point-of-care testing can be used to reduce unnecessary antimicrobial use. Dr. Tran will also provide tips for establishing antimicrobial stewardship metrics and implementing antimicrobial stewardship programs.

What you will learn

  • How antimicrobial resistance is a threat to public health

  • The new regulatory requirements for antimicrobial stewardship

  • How procalcitonin and molecular point-of care-testing can enhance antimicrobial stewardship

  • Tips for implementing antimicrobial stewardship programs
