Clinical and Public Health Partnerships For Antibiotic Stewardship
Date: Tuesday, July 30, 2019
Time: 2:00 PM EDT
Essential hospitals play a vital role in combating antimicrobial resistance in communities nationwide. Partnerships with local health departments have supported and bolstered these efforts.
Enhance your own hospital’s antimicrobial stewardship efforts by joining us for a case study of one such partnership between association member LAC+USC Medical Center and the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health. Speakers will share how the partnership was established and maintained, how it has improved stewardship efforts, challenges, and lessons learned. They will also share recommendations for other local health departments and essential hospitals interested in pursuing a similar partnership.
