In 2014, President Obama signed an executive order triggering a cascade of activity meant to tackle the emerging threat of antimicrobial resistance. That executive order included the establishment of robust antimicrobial stewardship programs in hospitals. Since that time, major regulatory agencies have codified their expectations around antimicrobial stewardship in the acute care setting. This webinar will review the seminal role of the Center for Disease Control (CDC) Core Elements of Hospital Antimicrobial Stewardship Programs document and the expectations such programs as outlined by Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and the Joint Commission (TJC). It will also elaborate how other entities, such as the National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN), use antimicrobial stewardship as part of their assessment of a hospital’s overall quality activities.
The target audience for this activity includes pharmacists and board-certified infectious diseases pharmacists (BCIDPs) seeking to update their knowledge and skills related to contemporary infectious diseases literature review. At the completion of this activity, the participant will be able to:
- Describe some of the regulations and actions prompted by the PCAST (President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology) Report to the President on Combating Antibiotic Resistance.
- Describe the conditions of participation for antimicrobial stewardship programs (ASPs) in acute care settings as delineated by Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).
- Identify the requirements for ASPs in acute care settings as delineated by The Joint Commission (TJC).
- Define the patient safety based requirements for ASPs in acute care settings as delineated by other regulatory/quality entities (i.e. National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN), Leapfrog survey, etc).
- Review questions related to antimicrobial stewardship (AS) that may be posed by a regulatory body during a survey.
- Summarize interventions and processes that can be enacted in order to ensure compliance with regulatory requirements.
