    Description: 

    This session was part of the Sepsis Alliance AMR Conference 2023.

    Sustainable resources are needed to improve antibiotic stewardship in healthcare facilities across the country. Healthcare professionals and networks can solve gaps that worsen known health inequities in antibiotic prescribing and use by implementing data-driven solutions, sharing knowledge, and integrating resources. This keynote session will discuss current policy efforts that aim to improve antibiotic stewardship practices and economic incentive policies.

    Learning Objectives: 

    At the end of the session, the learner should be able to:

    • Understand how both improving the development pipeline for new antibiotics and ensuring optimal use of existing ones are integral to combatting antimicrobial resistance;
    • Discuss how policies can help spur the adoption of antibiotic stewardship practices across healthcare settings;
    • Describe how economic incentive policies aim to help revitalize the antibiotic pipeline.

    Target Audience: 

    Nurses, advanced practice providers, physicians, emergency responders, pharmacists, medical technologists, respiratory therapists, physical/occupational therapists, infection prevention specialists, data/quality specialists, and more.

    Description: 

    This session was part of the Sepsis Alliance AMR Conference 2023.

    Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) is a complex issue that needs to be tackled with a systems thinking approach, and interdisciplinary collaboration is key. The One Health Approach establishes that the health of humans, domestic and wild animals, plants, and the wider environment (including ecosystems) are closely linked and inter-dependent. Therefore, AMR should be addressed with a One Health approach in mind.  

    Animal health can broadly be divided into two sectors. The first sector is animal agriculture where a population medicine approach is used to address animal health issues, and where the main objective is to provide nutritious and healthy safe animal protein for the consumers.

    In this session, attendees will gain an understanding of the veterinary perspective on ‘One Health’ system thinking, as well as learn about the current challenges and opportunities for antimicrobial stewardship in animal health, and how that ultimately affects the lives of humans.

    Learning Objectives: 

    At the end of the session, the learner should be able to:

    • Understand One Health from the veterinary perspective; 
    • Review the challenges around antibiotic use in animal health;
    • Describe opportunities for antimicrobial stewardship in animal health.   

    Target Audience: 

    Nurses, advanced practice providers, physicians, emergency responders, pharmacists, medical technologists, respiratory therapists, physical/occupational therapists, infection prevention specialists, data/quality specialists, and more.

    Much of the focus of Antimicrobial Stewardship programs has been on optimizing use of antibiotics in bacterial infections. However, with the rising rates of antifungal resistance, antifungal stewardship is also necessary. Unlike antibacterial drugs, there are only a limited number of drugs available to treat invasive fungal infections. In this session, the audience will learn about the current epidemiology of antifungal resistance worldwide, the current limitations of antifungal therapy, the effects of COVID-19 pneumonia on the risk of fungal infections, and what antifungal stewardship steps could limit the rise of antifungal resistance.

    Learning Objectives: 

    At the end of the session, the learner should be able to:

    • Discuss the epidemiology of antifungal resistance and how it affects human health;
    • Identify the main drivers for the increasing trend in antifungal resistance;
    • Describe preventative measures to curb the development of antifungal resistance.

    Target Audience: 

    Nurses, advanced practice providers, physicians, emergency responders, pharmacists, medical technologists, respiratory therapists, physical/occupational therapists, infection prevention specialists, data/quality specialists, and more.

    The rapid growth of antibiotic resistant bacteria makes it difficult to treat infections, which can lead to sepsis. However, with optimized sepsis management protocols and guidance from antimicrobial stewardship programs, it is possible to combat antimicrobial resistance alongside sepsis. In this sponsored session, participants will learn why antimicrobial stewardship is an integral part of a sepsis protocol. The presenter will explain how to optimize sepsis care and improve antimicrobial use, keeping the patient as the primary focus and ensuring the use of the right drug at the right time.
