Antimicrobial Resistance

CME Training

New Jersey Gets Smart…and Interactive!

Antibiotic Resistance has been identified by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as one of the key microbial threats to health in the U.S.In response to this, the CDC has developed a national awareness campaign entitled “Get Smart: Know When Antibiotics Work” to bring awareness and understanding of the global problem of antibiotic resistance, as well as the consequences of inappropriate antibiotic use.

As part of this initiative, the UMDNJ Center for Continuing and Outreach Education (CCOE) and New Jersey Medical School Department of Preventive Medicine and Community Health have developeda new interactive program entitled, ”Get Smart New Jersey About Antibiotic Resistance.” This online CME activity was developed in collaboration with the New Jersey Department of Health and is intended for primary care clinician audiences.

The program’s goal is to raise awareness, and minimize the problem of antibiotic-resistant bacteria in New Jersey by providing education on the appropriate use of antibiotics in patient diagnosis and treatment. This CME program includes adult and pediatric versions with interactive case scenarios that illustrate common issues associated with treating respiratory infections. The Activity is organized into two separate modules: one for Adult Cases, and one for Pediatric Cases. There is no charge, and clinicians are invited to take one or both modules – credit will be awarded for successful completion of each program individually.
