More than 2 million people are estimated to be infected by antibiotic-resistant organisms which result in over 14,000 deaths annually. Antibiotic resistance and the scarce antibiotic choices for multi-drug resistant organisms are urgent worldwide public health problems. Consequently, antibiotic stewardship has become a critical responsibility for all healthcare institutions and antibiotic prescribers. In Nebraska, access to trained and experienced antimicrobial stewardship experts is limited. This summit is designed to increase knowledge and competence as well as disseminate best-practices in antimicrobial stewardship programs.
