Overview Community acquired bacterial pneumonia (CABP) is a leading cause of hospitalization and death in the US. Antibiotic resistance is one of the biggest health challenges in the US and NPs are ideally situated to respond to the call for antibiotic stewardship. In this audio-visual presentation, a primary care NP and an emergency NP guide the learner through the updated ATS/IDSA guidelines for community acquired pneumonia. This activity also includes a thorough review of current pharmacologic treatments including newer agents and discussion of antimicrobial stewardship. A tracer case study follows a patient from the primary care setting to the emergency room and back to primary care for follow up.
Outline current national guidelines for community acquired bacterial pneumonia (CABP) diagnosis and management in the outpatient setting.
Discuss antimicrobial stewardship in the context of CABP.
Compare and contrast antimicrobial treatments for CABP including newer agents.
