Watch the webinar held on Jan. 12, 2022 below

Goal: This activity impacts the interprofessional healthcare team by educating clinicians on this topic that is not well understood by the general healthcare population, and is often extensively discussed/debated, and managed by infectious diseases specialists. This session highlights the importance of how to recognize an ESBL-producing organism, define generally accepted treatment options based on the type of infection, and present clinical scenarios where there is still controversy based on the available scientific evidence.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Discuss pros of testing for ESBL production in ceftriaxone-non-susceptible Enterobacterales
  2. Describe cons of testing for ESBL production in ceftriaxone-non-susceptible Enterobacterales
  3. Determine how microbiology laboratories and antimicrobial stewardship teams can collaborate to improve care of patients with multidrug-resistant infections
