Dr. Eric Wombwell, PharmD, and Board Certified Infectious Disease Pharmacist will be your guide in this digital seminar, as you learn the latest evidence in the pharmacology of infectious diseases and application of this evidence to enhance your clinical pharmacy practice.
With new antibiotics, vaccines, treatment guidelines, and evidence-based research continuously becoming available, the need to stay up-to-date is an imperative for pharmacists. The CDC recommends that pharmacists receive ongoing education about a variety of areas, including adverse reactions to antibiotics, antibiotic resistance and optimal prescribing.
Dr. Wombwell will draw attention to clinical situations where antibiotics are overprescribed, unnecessarily used, and underutilized in the treatment of infections. He will provide approaches to improve antibiotic use in these situations—resulting in reduced antibiotic cost, resistance, and collateral damage, improving patient outcomes in both outpatient and inpatient environments.
You’ll leave with the knowledge and strategies to:
Integrate current, best-practice treatment guidelines
Limit adverse reactions from antibiotics
Implement antimicrobial de-escalation strategies
Purchase this digital seminar, and as an added bonus, you’ll receive FREE access to the webcast Pharmacology of Pain Management for End-of-Life Care: Recommendations for Advance Clinical Pharmacy Practice webcast to build your knowledge about the pharmacology surrounding pain and comfort.
