The Basic Antimicrobial Stewardship Training Program - 2019 consists of four parts: the first three are required, online, knowledge-based programs designed for practitioners initially getting involved in antimicrobial stewardship:
- Module 1 "Setting the Stage to be a Steward" consists of seven required lessons;
- Module 2 "The Stewardship Roadmap" consists of six required lessons;
- Module 3 consists of seven elective lessons. The participant must complete at least 3 electives; additional electives may be completed (and CE earned) if the participant pays an additional fee of $25 per lesson.
Evaluation: Learners must indicate participation and complete all relevant fields of the evaluation to claim CE credit for this activity.
The final part of the program is a practical component or "Practicum," in which the learner completes a stewardship project/initiative at their place of practice. Guidelines for completing the practicum and typical examples here at https://mad-id.org/antimicrobial-stewardship-programs/practicum/.
When all four parts have been successfully completed, a certificate of completion is awarded but continuing education credits can be claimed at any time.
