Being an Effective #Stewie when Prescribing Antimicrobials in the Ambulatory Setting


Antibiotic resistance is a major public health issue that leads to ~2 million infections and ~23 thousand deaths per year in the U.S. Antibiotic use is the primary cause of antibiotic resistance. In this webinar, Dr Jasmine Riviere Marcelin, MD, will summarize the risks and benefits of antimicrobial use in the primary care setting; educate on the primary care clinician’s role as a judicious #Stewie (Antimicrobial Steward); and share ways to apply select clinical pathway guidance to syndrome-specific and patient-dependent antibiotic prescribing in the primary care setting.
