Our first Antimicrobial Stewardship Program (ASP) ECHO Clinic for Cohort A will be the “Why of Antibiotic Stewardship.” The clinic will provide an introduction to the ECHO model, a clear definition of antimicrobial stewardship and show the impact a well-organized, mission-driven stewardship program can have on a facility. Using current data, subject matter experts will review trends in antimicrobial resistance, use and policy with a focus on providing a framework for future clinics covering the core elements of stewardship programs and the strategic planning process.
