The Tennessee Department of Health Antimicrobial Stewardship Collaborative will be hosting a webinar on January 29, 2014, at 10:00 AM Central Time to review recent activities related to Antimicrobial Stewardship reporting. TPA encourages all health-systems pharmacists interested in, or currently involved with, antimicrobial stewardship program activities to participate in this webinar.

Please join us for our next webinar on
Wednesday, January 29, 2014 at 10:00 – 11:00 AM Central Time.
We will be reviewing the methodology for a simplified prevalence survey of antimicrobial use which hospitals will be completing at least every quarter. Through this survey we plan to monitor trends in antimicrobial use, as well as to provide regular feedback to hospitals based on how their antimicrobial use compare to other hospitals. We hope that many of you will join the webinar, and please invite colleagues at your hospitals (especially clinical pharmacy staff) who may be interested.
