2019 Core Antimicrobial Stewardship Curriculum Self Study
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. Because of interest outside from learners that were not currently in a fellowship program or may not have antimicrobial stewardship knowledge or training, this curriculum was designed specifically for you.
For more information regarding topics covered, learning objectives, etc., please refer to the flyer at the bottom of this page.
Infectious Disease professionals who desire to learn more about antimicrobial stewardship but are not in a participating fellowship program, no longer in fellowship, or generally would like to gain more knowledge on the subject.
Upon completion of this Curriculum, you 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
