Susan Feeney, FNP, DNP

Antibiotics are among the most frequently prescribed medications across all settings and populations. Antibiotic resistance has been identified as a significant public health concern and can be linked to antibiotic misuse and overuse.  To adequately face this challenge, clinician must stay up to date with evidenced based guidelines when diagnosing and choosing treatment for bacterial infections. This knowledge is the basis of antibiotic stewardship. The WHO and CDC identify antibiotic stewardship as the foundation for addressing this public health crisis. Antibiotic stewardship focuses on judicious antibiotic prescribing both from an individual prescriber perspective and from the level of healthcare systems. Prudent prescribing asks clinicians to employ prudent prescribing principles which includes applying evidenced based diagnostic criteria, appropriate selection of antibiotics (class, route, dose, duration) and avoidance of unnecessary antibiotic prescribing. This interactive presentation will review these essential components of prudent antibiotic prescribing and use cases to aid in application of the principles of antibiotic stewardship.

Evaluation of thediagnostic test characteristics of THIRD, versus MRI or MRI with Arthrogram (MRA) for diagnosing hip labral pathology. Methods: 7-year retrospective chart review was performed. All charts that had the chief complaint of hip pain with documentation of THIRD, MRI or MRA, and arthroscopic findings (ie gold standard) were pulled, and data extracted for findings of each of the tests. Results: N of 81. Compared to MRI/MRA, THIRD had significantly better sensitivity (91% versus 65%, p<.001) and accuracy (89% versus 64%, p<.001). Conclusions: THIRD outperformed MRI/MRA and noninvasive, low-cost procedure to diagnosis hip labral pathology.
