Kick off U.S. Antibiotic Awareness week by joining Guillermo (Memo) Sanchez, PA-C from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Patrick Dolan, MD, for a one-hour presentation brought to you by the College of Urgent Care Medicine. Dr. Dolan serves as the principal investigator in an Urgent Care based study on ABS where Urgent Care centers around the country have moved the needle on appropriate prescribing practices. Memo Sanchez, PA-C recently presented to a group of your peers at the UCA Assembly in Nashville, TN with a great response from the attendees as he identified myths and misconceptions around ABS. His presentation is uniquely targeted to the nuances of the Urgent Care setting with updated data points and industry trends. Both presenters are focused on solutions and successes that have been realized across a diverse group of Urgent Care settings. As Urgent Care medicine has returned to normalcy following the COVID-19 pandemic, it is time to refocus our energy on combatting antimicrobial resistance and fulfilling the role we all have in becoming part of the solution. Clinical and administrative Urgent Care leadership have an opportunity to collaborate to make a difference—and there is something for everyone in the information that will be provided by our speakers.
This webinar is provided as part of the College’s commitment to stewardship in collaboration with the CDC. There is no cost to attend.
