New Antibiotics for the Treatment of Drug-Resistant Gram-negative Infections

 

Join Dr. Scott Micek on Monday, October 26, 2020 from 9:00 am to 10:00 am for an engaging live virtual presentation discussing gram-negative bacterial infections treated with new antibiotics. During this presentation, you will learn about Gram-negative resistance, antibiotic treatment options, and strategies for antimicrobial stewardship. This knowledge can help lead efforts within the hospital to ensure appropriate drug selection and use, with the goal of improving patient outcomes and reducing the development of resistance in Gram-negative microorganisms.                                                                

This session will be held live in a virtual format. All pharmacists are welcome to attend!

Gram-negative bacterial infections are challenging to treat and are associated with high morbidity and mortality, particularly when dealing with multidrug-resistant pathogens. With increased knowledge about Gram-negative resistance, antibiotic treatment options, and strategies for antimicrobial stewardship, pharmacists can help lead efforts within the hospital to ensure appropriate drug selection and use with the goal of improving patient outcomes and reducing the development of resistance in Gram-negative microorganisms.

Objectives

  • Describe the epidemiology and mechanisms of drug resistance among Gram-negative bacterial infections.
  • Compare and contrast antibiotic options for treating serious Gram-negative infections.
  • In the context of case scenarios, identify antibiotic options for difficult-to-treat Gram-negative bacterial infections in hospitalized patients.
