The social determinants of antibiotic prescribing: Moving toward a more

Dec. 9

Noon - 1 p.m.

This event is open to HANYS members and non-members.

This session will address the sociological, cultural and behavioral influences on antibiotic prescribing. Antibiotic stewardship interventions informed by social and behavioral theory will also be discussed, as well as practical suggestions for implementing these interventions as part of hospital or post-acute antibiotic stewardship efforts.

Upon completion of the webinar, participants will be able to:

  • explain what it means to take a sociological approach to patient safety and quality improvement;
  • describe the social determinants of antibiotic prescribing; and
  • identify socio-behavioral interventions that work to improve prescribing.
