Managing sepsis care and antimicrobial stewardship — a balancing act

Administering antimicrobial therapy is essential for treating the underlying infections that cause sepsis.Yet, studies have shown that up to 30% of antimicrobials prescribed in the hospital are unnecessary. Managing sepsis protocols and antimicrobial stewardship guidelines is a balancing act. As antimicrobial resistance and sepsis continue to be a growing threat, the need for strong alignment between sepsis and antimicrobial stewardship programs is key.   
 
Collaboration across teams is essential to ensure appropriate initiation, monitoring, and de-escalation of antibiotics, as all are factors that decrease mortality. Discover why clinical teams look to clinical surveillance to support sepsis and antimicrobial stewardship programs to reduce variation in care, reduce costs, and improve patient outcomes.   
 
In this webinar, we will:  

  • Describe the role of antimicrobial stewardship in your hospital’s sepsis program
  • Evaluate practical strategies to address antibiotic use for patients with sepsis 
  • Discuss how clinical surveillance technology can be used to improve sepsis outcomes as well as manage antimicrobial stewardship
