2019 Core Antimicrobial Stewardship Curriculum for Faculty
The IDSA Core Antimicrobial Stewardship (CAS) Curriculum was developed to provide infectious diseases (ID) fellows with foundational education and training in Antimicrobial
Stewardship (AS), regardless of ultimate career plans. The curriculum is designed for use within an existing ID fellowship training program to ensure the future ID workforce is equipped to oversee and participate in AS efforts.
The faculty version of the curriculum provides access to manage fellow completions and attendance, exclusive video content for classroom facilitation, and guidance on implementation. For additional details regarding faculty participation and the time commitment, please refer to the flyer at the bottom of this page.
This course is designed specifically for ID training program directors, ID Pharmacists, AS medical directors, the designated Antimicrobial Stewardship Champion or other faculty members that will be implementing the AS curriculum for stewards in training.
Upon completion of this Curriculum, the learner should be able to:
1. Explain to patients and health care providers the importance of antibiotic stewardship in the care of individual patients and the community at large
2. Model antibiotic stewardship best practices during the clinical care of patients in the inpatient and outpatient setting
3. Structure a conversation to effect change in the antibiotic prescribing patterns of other providers using techniques based in behavioral psychology
4. Describe elements of an effective antibiotic stewardship program and explain the inter-professional collaborations and leadership support necessary for its success
5. Discuss antibiotic stewardship as a potential career pathway and explain the day to day activities of the antibiotic steward
