Objectives
  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.
