Building an Antimicrobial Stewardship Committee in Long-term Care

Introduction

Building an antimicrobial stewardship committee from scratch is no easy feat. This webinar will discuss the experiences of two long-term care facilities in Saskatchewan who were each tasked with developing an antimicrobial stewardship committee. What worked? What didn’t? Who was at the table? Join us to find out more and learn how this could apply to your facility!

The CAN AMS! webinars share examples of leading Antimicrobial Stewardship intervention and inspire what CAN be done to slow AMR.
