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. The self-study version of the curriculum is available to learners who are not currently in a fellowship program and seeking independent study of antimicrobial stewardship.

Access to the curriculum will be provided for two years, and the estimated time of completion is 15 hours.

Target Audience

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.

Learning Objectives

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
