Econometrica Helps Develop CE Course for CDC

Aiming to combat the threat of antibiotic resistance to patient safety and public health, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently released the first section of a web-based training course on antibiotic stewardship. Econometrica’s Learning, Training & Diffusion Team has been developing the four-part series for CDC’s Office of Antibiotic Stewardship.

This interactive course is part of CDC’s aim to educate clinicians about the benefits of antibiotic stewardship. The course will help clinicians deliver effective and consistent messages to patients about antibiotic use and antibiotic resistance, and will work to improve clinician prescribing practices.

After winning the contract in October 2017, Econometrica has worked rapidly with its partners Qualidigm, Hendall, and Dr. Ed Septimus to develop the course. Our team of project managers, subject matter experts, instructional designers, curriculum developers, eLearning developers, and graphic designers continue to work closely to produce the course’s remaining modules, which CDC will release throughout 2018.

The course is targeted to clinicians, including doctors, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, certified health education specialists, nurses, pharmacists, and public health practitioners. Participants of the course are eligible to receive credit under the Merit-Based Incentive Programs, or MIPS.

Econometrica’s core capabilities include our work in training and change management, and we continue to grow in this field. View our change management web page to find out more information about this service.
