  • Use of Chronic Antibiotics: What the Evidence Tells Us and What it Doesn’t

    Contains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits

    Recorded on November 2, 2019 at the 2019 ACOI Annual Convention and Scientific Sessions held in Phoenix, AZ.

    Target audience:
    This activity has been designed for general internists and all internal medicine subspecialists who utilize antibiotics in their clinical practices.

    Statement of Need:
      o Knowledge: Internists are required to manage a wide range of recurrent infections. Not all internists are able or do remain current  on the latest guidelines, pivotal trials, and clinical evidence informing the use of chronic antibiotics in the management of recurrent  infections. In many cases this is driven by a lack of awareness of advances and available information.

      o Competence: Gap analysis revealed that, across a range of infection types, internists often have a strong understanding of best-  practice approaches, but do not consistently apply these in practice. For example, despite evidence supporting the use of chronic  antibiotic therapies in certain patients with specific recurrent infections, there has been variable implementation in hospital and  community-based practices.

    Learning Objectives:
    As a result of actively participating in this activity, the learner will be able to:
      o Discuss the role of chronic suppressive antibiotics in the setting of chronic prosthetic joint infections and osteomyelitis
      o Assess the utility of suppressive antibiotics in patients with recurring cellulitis
      o Evaluate the use of chronic antibiotics in elderly patients with recurrent urinary tract infections
      o Review key clinical implications of chronic antibiotic use including emergence of resistance and side effects
      o Utilize the data and case information in clinical decision-making

  • Overtreatment of Outpatient Infections

    Contains 4 Component(s), Includes Credits Recorded On: 11/02/2019

    Recorded on November 2, 2019 at the 2019 ACOI Annual Convention and Scientific Sessions held in Phoenix, AZ.

    The speaker will explain that the overuse of antibiotics is common and associated with significant negative impact on patient safety and quality of care, notes that there is an over-diagnosis of the penicillin allergy, and that de-labeling people mistakenly thought to be allergic to penicillin is safe and cost-saving, and will emphasize that conditions that are difficult to 'precisely diagnose', such as respiratory tract symptoms and skin erythema can lead to over-diagnosis and then overtreatment of conditions that can be misinterpreted as having an infectious etiology.  This lecture was recorded on November 02, 2019 at the 2019 ACOI Annual Convention and Scientific Sessions held in Phoenix, AZ.
