Fighting Antimicrobial-Resistant Pathogens

The emergence of antimicrobial resistance in many pathogens threatens to reverse much of the progress the world has made against disease over the past 50 years. Reviewed for accuracy in 2011, this program describes the emergence of antimicrobial-resistant pathogens and the recommendations of the CDC and others to fight back against them.


After completing this course, the learner should be able to:
  • Describe the genetic causes of antimicrobial resistance.
  • Describe the human causes of antimicrobial resistance in the medical community.
  • Describe the human causes of antimicrobial resistance outside the medical community.
  • Name the major resistant pathogens and the antibiotics that will still work against them.
  • Describe the major actions of the global counterattack against resistant pathogens.
  • Describe what the CDC recommends healthcare workers do in acute care facilities against emerging resistant pathogens.
This program also includes workbooks that can be ordered separately.
