Implementation of Antimicrobial Sterwardship Progams in Resource Constrained Settings

Introducing New Antimicrobials for Mult-Drug Resistant Pathogens in High-Endemic Settings
Manica Balasegaram

Learning Objectives
Antimicrobial resistance is one of the biggest threats to global health accelerated, in part, by the misuse of antibiotics. The lack of access to antibiotics in resource constrained settings continues to cause significant morbidity and mortality, while the overuse of antibiotics accelerates the global spread of drug resistant organisms. It is critical to ensure access to appropriate antimicrobials while measuring and improving prescribing practices of clinicians and use by patients. During this webinar, speakers will address the  unique challenges of successfully implementing antimicrobial stewardship programs in resource constrained settings to optimize clinical outcomes while minimizing unintended consequences of antimicrobial use such as: toxicity, selection of pathogenic organisms (Clostridioides difficile), and the emergence of resistance. They will discuss the introduction of new antimicrobials in high-endemic settings and ways to ensure these treatments are available to those in need while also using them sparingly to limit the development of drug resistance.

This webinar is supported by an unrestricted educational grant from bioMérieux.
