Antimicrobial Stewardship Symposium

6th Annual Antimicrobial Stewardship Symposium

A series of important conversations for infectious disease practitioners and infection preventionists.

Friday, May 13, 2022
8:00am-3:45pm (CDT)

In-Person at Belmont University
Nashville, TN

This symposium brings together key stakeholders and infectious disease practitioners from across Tennessee, the southeastern US, and beyond. Pharmacists, physicians, nurses, infection preventionists, and microbiologists learn and share important information about infectious diseases, as well as discuss ways that we can work together as a medical community to improve appropriate antimicrobial use and mitigate the risks associated with inappropriate use. In addition, continuing education credit is available for pharmacists, physicians, and nurses.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this symposium, learners should be able to: 

  • Identify resources available to assist in the development of antimicrobial stewardship programs in the acute care, long-term care, and outpatient settings.
  • Discuss how to appropriately utilize current information and diagnostics technology to maximize your stewardship impact in your facilities.
  • Discuss optimization of antimicrobial therapy for certain infections based on evidenced based medicine and your community's and region's antibiogram.
  • Discuss how to combat healthcare misinformation including increasing vaccine confidence.
