Overview

More than 2.8 million antibiotic-resistant infections occur in the United States each year, resulting in more than 35,000 deaths. One analysis found that 53% of ambulatory antibiotic prescriptions were not associated with a clinic visit or documentation of an infection. In this session, a global leader in infectious diseases research and antibiotic resistance solutions will discuss the health implications of antimicrobial resistance and the importance of antimicrobial stewardship in the outpatient setting for improving clinical outcomes, promoting patient safety, and reducing antimicrobial resistance. Evidence-based antimicrobial stewardship interventions specific to outpatient settings will also be presented.
