The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Office of Antibiotic Stewardship has launched the final components of its four-section web-based training course on Antibiotic Stewardship. Section 3 will cover antibiotic stewardship considerations for the management of common outpatient conditions and dentistry, while Section 4 is all about antibiotic stewardship in emergency departments, hospitals, and nursing homes. Each individual module has continuing education credits. To register and take the course online, create an account at http://bit.ly/2BsVc0z.
NOTE: While this course is primarily for clinicians who prescribe antibiotics, CDC recognizes that everyone plays an important role in antibiotic use. Doctors, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, certified health education specialists, nurses, pharmacists, and public health practitioners with a master’s degree in public health are eligible to receive up to eight hours of free CE for the entire course.
