Missouri History Museum | AT&T Multipurpose room

Join us for this exclusive symposium, which will explore the application of dissemination and implementation (D&I) science to improve clinical practice in antimicrobial stewardship and infection prevention. By the conclusion of this event, participants will formulate a research agenda for D&I science in antimicrobial stewardship and infection prevention.

Attendees can expect: 

  • An introduction to implementation science
  • In-depth presentations & a panel discussion on implementation science applications in stewardship and infection prevention
  • Keynote presentations from Priya Nori, MD and Gonzalo Bearman, MD, editors for the new journal Antimicrobial Stewardship & Healthcare Epidemiology

This half-day symposium is open to those interested in D&I science and antimicrobial stewardship. The event will take place in person in the AT&T Multipurpose Room at the Missouri History Museum. Registration is required to attend. Registration will close on Monday, June 19.
