Description

Pharmacology of Infectious Diseases & Immunizations for Advanced Practice Clinicians – Eric Wombwell

Watch this recording and learn proper prescribing, patient education and monitoring procedures for a variety of drug regimens used to treat common acute and chronic infectious diseases. Choosing an antibacterial agent can be challenging, given the plethora of drugs available on the market and the emerging trend in bacterial resistance.

You will learn the pharmacology of different classes of antimicrobials used to treat infectious disease states encountered in clinical practice. Discover the spectrums of activity, pharmacokinetic characteristics and parameters for monitoring therapeutic outcomes. Emphasis is placed on the new antimicrobials and advances in evidence-based treatment guidelines.

You will leave this recording better prepared to design appropriate and cost-effective drug regimens for improved therapeutic outcomes. 


  1. Analyze the major classes of antibiotics and their pharmacokinetic characteristics.
  2. Apply current evidenced-based approaches to select appropriate treatment regimens for common infections encountered in clinical practice.
  3. Prescribe antimicrobials based on empiric dosing recommendations.
  4. Plan goals of therapy and parameters for monitoring therapeutic response to antimicrobials.
  5. Recommend specific antimicrobial therapeutic drug monitoring to maximize efficacy and minimize toxicities (e.g., vancomycin and aminoglycosides).
  6. Develop preventative strategies to limit antimicrobial resistance.
  7. Design patient and caregiver education on the proper use of antimicrobials.
