Series Description: Telligen, the Quality Innovation Network-Quality Improvement Organization (QIN-QIO) for Colorado, and the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) invites you to join an upcoming “Tag Busters” learning series focused on antibiotic stewardship. Antibiotic stewardship optimizes the treatment of infections while reducing the side effects of antibiotic use. This learning series is aligned with and supports the CDC’s Core Elements of Antibiotic Stewardship for Nursing Homes and is designed to provide participants with evidence-based approaches to improve antibiotic use through action, tracking and reporting.
Why antibiotic stewardship?
Each session of this learning series will feature a new topic during which experts will share key information, tools and resources to support success with improving antibiotic stewardship practices, resident safety and quality of care. This series occurs at 12 p.m. MT/1 p.m. CT on the first Friday of each month. Below are the session dates and topics:
