ANTIBIOTIC STEWARDSHIP: WHAT EVERY DENTAL PROFESSIONAL
NEEDS TO KNOW
Course Description

Increased awareness about the growing problem of microbial resistance with related challenges of treating infections caused by resistant organisms has resulted in a global initiative to improve the appropriate and safe use of antibiotics. Antibiotic stewardship refers to a set of recommendations for clinicians to follow to guide decision-making and management of infections with antibiotics. These recommendations are relevant to all healthcare professionals and their related practice environments, including dentistry. This course will review strategies to promote antibiotic stewardship among dental professionals. Proper use of antibiotics, including antibiotic use for premedication in at-risk individuals will be reviewed based upon current scientific literature.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this course, attendees should be able to:
•  Discuss the implications of widespread antibiotic use and the development of resistant organisms.
•  Describe several mechanisms by which bacteria can develop resistance to antibiotics.
•  Identify pathogens which have developed antibiotic resistance with resultant health implications.
