Free Webinar on Nurses' Role in Antibiotic Stewardship (December 5)

A free webinar entitled Nurses' Role in Antibiotic Stewardship will be offered on December 5, 2017 (12:00 nn ET). This webinar is the fourth in a series launched by the Nursing Infection Control Education (NICE) Network addressing the key issues surrounding infection prevention in healthcare facilities. The American Nurses Association (ANA), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and various nursing specialty organizations, including ANNA, have partnered to form the NICE Network, which seeks to empower nurses to protect themselves and their patients by providing infection prevention and control training to U.S. nurses.

The Nurses' Role in Antibiotic Stewardship webinar will feature the Academy of Medical-Surgical Nurses, the National Association of Clinical Nurse Specialists, and the National Student Nurses Association. Presenters will use the ANA and CDC white paper as the framework to describe the problem of antibiotic resistance, help nurses embrace an expanded role in hospital antibiotic stewardship programs, list key reasons for nurse leaders to be engaged with antimicrobial stewardship, and highlight the significance of adherence to clinical practice guidelines in the educational setting.
