2.0 Free CEUs for Pharmacists- Managing Serious Infections in Patients with Malignancy

Bacterial Infections in Patients with Cancer: New Challenges, New Opportunities- The management of serious bacterial infections in patients with malignancy is becoming particularly challenging in the light of increasing antimicrobial resistance among key pathogens and limited therapeutic options. Oncologists must take a proactive role in ensuring early identification of infection in high-risk patients with cancer followed by urgent treatment. This educational activity is designed to enhance the awareness and knowledge of the latest advancements and clinical findings, as well as offer a broad understanding of current and emerging therapeutic options when treating serious bacterial infections.
This program is divided into three learning blocks that focus on key pathogens: (1) Gram-positive bacteria (e.g., S. aureus, MRSA, enterococci), (2) Gram-negative bacteria (e.g., ESBL- and carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae, P. aeruginosa), and (3) C. difficile. Current trends in the evolving epidemiology of infection in patients with cancer are discussed. Management approaches will focus on effective treatment strategies for infections caused by MDR bacteria.
Discuss the evolving epidemiology of Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacterial infections in patients with cancer.
Assess patient risk and local epidemiological factors when selecting antimicrobial therapy for bacterial infection in patients with neutropenic fever.
Implement evidence-based guideline approaches in the management of C. difficile infection in patients with cancer.

Antibiotic Optimization: Fighting MDR Bacteria- Free CEUs for Pharmacists

MDROAntibiotic Optimization in Today’s Hospital Setting:Rethinking Current Treatment Strategies-The pandemic of multidrug-resistant (MDR) bacteria and their continuing spread is beyond dispute, and is now considered a global public crisis. The threat of infections caused by MDR organisms has been well documented over the past decade along with warnings concerning the consequences of inappropriate use of antimicrobials in accelerating resistance development. The newest threat includes the emergence and spread of carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae.
Clinicians must consider all aspects when designing a treatment plan for combating MDR infections. Inappropriate initial therapy can have significant consequences with respect to patient morbidity, mortality, and overall costs. Therefore, clinicians must utilize the latest strategies in infection control, diagnostics, and antibiotic selection with regimens optimized to ensure the highest probability of achieving a successful outcome. With few effective agents available, there is a pressing need for new management strategies when combating serious bacterial infections. Optimizing antimicrobial therapy based on patient-related, pathogen-related, and drug-related factors is essential in maximizing the probability of successful outcomes.
Evaluate the utility of the latest assays and techniques for diagnosing bacterial infections to guide infection control and treatment decisions
Differentiate new and emerging therapeutic options for treating multidrug-resistant bacterial infections
Identify strategies to optimize the use of antimicrobials by considering patient-, pathogen-, and drug-related factors

Managing Hypertension: Evidence-Based Practice Guidelines for Nurse Practitioners

Contemporary Management of Hypertension: Applying the Latest Evidence- Hypertension is a major risk factor for heart disease, stroke, heart failure, and kidney disease. According to recent estimates from the American Heart Association, nearly 1 in 3 adults in the United States (more than 76 million people) have hypertension. While there have been improvements within the last two decades in blood pressure awareness, treatment, and control, suboptimal blood pressure control continues to lead to significant morbidity and mortality. Only about half of US adults who are aware that they have hypertension have their blood pressure controlled. Nurse practitioners can play a key role in closing this gap by helping patients with hypertension overcome barriers to blood pressure control. Nurse practitioners are uniquely positioned to help patients achieve better blood pressure control by 1) following clinical practice guidelines for the management of hypertension; 2) tailoring hypertension treatment for individual patients based on current evidence; and 3) promoting patient adherence to hypertension treatment regimens. The goal of this activity is to improve the management of hypertension by nurse practitioners, ultimately leading to better blood pressure control and improved outcomes for patients.
Summarize updates to JNC 8 hypertension treatment guidelines and their relevance to helping patients achieve better blood pressure control.
Develop safe and effective tailored therapeutic regimens for hypertension (taking into account patient comorbidities, side effect profiles of agents, and appropriate combinations of agents).
Use adherence-promoting strategies to empower patients and caregivers and improve outcomes.
