Antibiotic Prescribing and COVID-19
November 18, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
What Clinicians, Pharmacists, and Public Health Partners Need to Know
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has published several studies characterizing antibiotic prescribing during the COVID-19 pandemic in outpatient, nursing home, and hospital settings. Findings from these studies and others inform opportunities to improve antibiotic use and guide the development of resources to support healthcare professionals and health systems. Case studies representing common clinical scenarios will be discussed to support decisions related to antibiotic prescribing.
During this Clinician Outreach and Communication Activity (COCA) Call, clinicians, pharmacists, and public health partners will learn about the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on antibiotic prescribing and strategies for optimizing antibiotic prescribing.
