    Biography
      Dr. Appaneal is a clinician scientist with expertise in infectious diseases, antibiotic stewardship, and pharmacy practice (Pharm D). She completed a pharmacy practice residency at the Providence Veterans Affairs Medical Center in July 2012 and subsequently a two-year VA funded post-doctoral fellowship for PharmDs in July 2014. Her fellowship training was in ID clinical outcomes with a focus on the appropriate use and safety of antibiotics. Since completing her fellowship, Dr. Appaneal has been a health services investigator at Providence VAMC with the Rhode Island ID (RIID) Research Program and a core member of the Providence VAMC's Antimicrobial Stewardship Program. Her research focuses in improving the quality of patient care nationally through reduction of inappropriate antibiotic use.

    Abstract

    Antibiotic resistance is a national and global public health crisis.  Each year in the United States (US), at least 2 million people become infected with antibiotic-resistant bacteria and at least 23,000 people die as a direct result of these infections. An estimated 14,000 deaths each year occur due to C. difficile infection.  The driving force that selects for antibiotic-resistant bacteria and promotes Clostridium difficile (C. difficile) infection is antibiotic use. Since at least 50% of antibiotic use is inappropriate in the US regardless of healthcare setting, antibiotic stewardship activities are extremely important in managing antibiotic resistance.  


    Learning Objectives: 

    1. Describe the importance and need for antibiotic stewardship 
    2. Identify key areas of concern regarding antibiotic resistance 
    3. Describe current and emerging antibiotic stewardship strategies to target antibiotic resistance
    4. Assess the evidence for antibiotic stewardship in managing antibiotic resistance
