About the Webinars
Antibiotic resistance caused by inappropriate use of antibiotics is a serious problem we discuss often.
Smart antibiotic stewardship improves how clinicians prescribe antibiotics and how patients use them.
Last summer, with support from the Pew Charitable Trusts, NCQA hosted five webinars to give health plans and practices new tools to fight antibiotic resistance.
