The New Jersey Hospital Association's Institute for Quality and Patient Safety is committed to working with its members to improve hospital Antimicrobial Stewardship programs and associated patient outcomes.

Improving the use of antimicrobials in healthcare to protect patients and reduce the threat of antimicrobial resistance is a national priority. Antimicrobial Stewardship refers to a set of commitments and actions designed to "optimize the treatment of infections while reducing the adverse events associated with antimicrobial use"

The mission of the NJHA Antimicrobial Stewardship Learning Action Collaborative is to promote the use of the appropriate agent, dose, duration, and route of administration of anitmicrobial agents both in the acute care and post-acute care setting in order to improve quality of patient care and patient safety while reducing excessive costs attributable to inappropriate antimicrobial use.

Topics for the conference will include:

  1. Updates from key stakeholders in antimicrobial stewardship in New Jersey
  2. Updates on the NJHA Antimicrobial Stewardship Learning Action Collaborative
  3. Innovative practice, acute care, long-term care and outpatient practice settings
