Education opportunity for prescribers of antibiotics

SDAHO will be offering a free CEU education for prescribers of antibiotics in long term care settings for residents and elderly.  The educational session also targets any clinicians  caring for this unique population.  Dr. Philip Sloane,  a geriatrician and expert in antibiotic stewardship specific to the elderly population from the University of North Caroline at Chapel Hill, is the guest speaker for this webinar.  Objectives for this event include understanding common clinical situations and consequences when antibiotics are overused, effective communication with off-site providers when suspected infection, as well as alternative care strategies when antibiotics are unnecessary.  Please register by August 21, 2017.
