Advanced Antimicrobial Stewardship Curriculum Self-Study

The IDSA Advanced Antimicrobial Stewardship (AS) curriculum provides you with the knowledge and skills to become a leader in antimicrobial stewardship and is intended for those who are considering or actively pursuing a career in antimicrobial stewardship. It builds upon the IDSA CORE AS Curriculum, which provides fellows with a broad foundation in antimicrobial stewardship. 

As with the CORE curriculum, the Advanced curriculum is designed for use at your home institution and builds on local AS resources. The content is organized into 5 main sections and includes eLearning modules, workbooks, and application activities. 

Target Audience

Infectious Disease professionals who desire to lead an 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.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this section, you will be able to:

  • Develop a comprehensive antimicrobial stewardship program by defining overall goals, optimizing team structure, and carrying out regulatory and reporting aspects of stewardship
  • Analyze local microbiology and antimicrobial data and use it to identify and implement impactful antimicrobial stewardship initiatives
  • Apply behavioral psychology principles and leverage business principles to increase resources for antimicrobial stewardship and influence culture change by creating effective programmatic antimicrobial stewardship communication approaches
  • Evaluate and plan the most effective diagnostic and antibiotic stewardship interventions for unique populations and settings (specifically the emergency department, immunocompromised populations, long-term care facilities, and outpatient sites)
  • Identify resources for professional development in antimicrobial stewardship to be able to begin a career in antimicrobial stewardship
  • Develop a plan to expand the reach of a stewardship program into the outpatient setting and  effectively collaborate with OPAT programs to optimize stewardship efforts

NOTE: Because this curriculum was initially designed specifically for fellows, you may hear repeated reference to "fellows" ,"stewards in training" or "fellows/trainees"
