Webinar to Explore New CMS Antibiotic Stewardship Requirements to Fight Superbugs

Posted on November 21, 2019

Antibiotics have transformed the practice of medicine, making once lethal infections readily treatable and other medical advances possible. However, an alarming report from federal health officials found that drug-resistant "superbugs" are infecting millions of Americans and killing thousands each year, reflecting a growing problem of antibiotic resistance. Improving the use of antibiotics is an important patient safety and public health issue, and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) will require all acute care and critical access hospitals to have antibiotic stewardship programs by March 30, 2020.

The MHA Health Foundation webinar Navigating the New CMS Antimicrobial Stewardship Requirements will review examples of leadership commitment to antibiotic stewardship programs and much more.

The webinar is scheduled from 10 to 11 a.m. Dec. 3, and MHA members can register for a $195 connection fee. Members with questions should contact Erica Leyko at the MHA.
