UNIVERSITY OF KENTUCKY COLLEGE OF NURSING HOSTS CONFERENCE TO ADDRESS BEST PRACTICES IN PRESCRIBING ANTIBIOTICS

Reducing microbial resistance, that is the challenge of today’s medical age. Healthcare leaders are finding ways to mitigate in treating microbial infections. Because infections caused by microbes are now becoming resistant to antibiotic therapies.

Studies show that in the US, at least 2 million people each year acquire serious infections with bacteria that are resistant to at least one or more of the antibiotics designed to treat those infections.

To address the issue, the University of Kentucky College of Nursing, in partnership with Kentucky Department of Public Health, HAI Prevention Program and Atom Alliance are hosting a conference on December 7-8, 2018 in UK HealthCare's Karpf Auditorium aiming at healthcare providers to address best practices in prescribing antibiotics, as well as provide extensive information and guidelines for the implementation of Antimicrobial Stewardship programs within healthcare settings.

 

Erudite Nursing Institute™ hopes for more professional research collaboration in reducing microbial resistance.
