CDC Online Training: Antibiotic Stewardship – Section 1

Feb 20, 2018 | Kim Rodgers

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Office of Antibiotic Stewardship has launched the first of a four-section web-based training course on Antibiotic Stewardship, each section of which will be released in 2018. To register and take the course online, create an account at http://bit.ly/2BsVc0z.

Course objectives include:

  • optimizing antibiotic prescribing and use to protect patients and combat the threat of antibiotic resistance,
  • informing healthcare professionals about proper antibiotic use, and
  • encouraging open discussion among doctors and patients.

While this particular course is primarily for clinicians who prescribe antibiotics, CDC recognizes that everyone plays an important role in antibiotic use. Doctors, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, certified health education specialists, nurses, pharmacists, and public health practitioners with a master’s degree in public health are eligible to receive up to eight hours of free CE for the entire course.
