The regulatory landscape of antimicrobial stewardship has changed greatly since 2012 as part of coordinated national and international efforts to combat antimicrobial resistance. This offering will provide an update of the current regulatory requirements regarding stewardship and describe initiatives and proposed rules on the horizon from government agencies and other organizations. This will include a discussion of stewardship in the acute care, ambulatory and long-term care settings. Other areas of opportunity for stewardship programs including formats for benchmarking antibiotic use through the National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN) Antimicrobial use and resistance (AUR) module and available incentives to report will also be reviewed.
This is a featured CE activity on the Society of Infectious Diseases Pharmacists Education Center (SIDPEC) website. SIDPEC is the educational hub of the Society of Infectious Diseases Pharmacists (SIDP).

At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to:
