HANYS Webinar: Managing Expectations through Patient and Family Engagement in Antibiotic Stewardship

Healthcare Association of New York State Webinar

4 – 5 p.m.

Registration is open to HANYS Members Only.

Through its Antibiotic Stewardship Collaborative, HANYS is supporting members as they accelerate their focus on antibiotic stewardship. The Collaborative uses the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Core Elements of Hospital Antibiotic Stewardship Programs as a framework, and includes support for National Healthcare Safety Network reporting readiness.

This webinar will address patient and family engagement as part of a hospital antibiotic stewardship program. Mr. Lillis will share the story of his mother, Peggy, who died from community-acquired C. difficile, as well as other patient stories that highlight important considerations in the prevention of drug-resistant infections in hospitals and other settings. Mr. Lillis will also share tools that are available for patients and providers in helping to manage antibiotic expectations and reduce the risk of drug resistant infections.

All members of hospital stewardship teams are encouraged to participate. A formal commitment to the HANYS Antibiotic Stewardship Collaborative is not required to register for this program. Hospitals may join the Collaborative at any time.

Featured Speakers:

Christian John Lillis, Executive Director, Peggy Lillis Foundation
