Clinical microbiology laboratories play a vital role in the success of antibiotic stewardship programs. In order for institutions to develop effective programs, however, they need to learn how to construct committees that work effectively with microbiology labs so they may deliver on the overarching program goals.
In this P.A.C.E.-accredited Fisher Healthcare webinar, you’ll learn how to align with microbiology labs to provide better guidance and support for antibiotic stewardship programs. A lack of alignment can prevent investment in new methods, access to new therapeutics, and effective management of the most critically ill patients.
Collaboration between stewardship programs and microbiology labs can improve patient safety and outcomes, particularly in critically ill patients. It can do so by helping ensure susceptibility testing data is used to optimize treatment decisions, which can help reduce the adverse effects of treatment and shorten the length of patient hospital stays.
