Objectives
At the end of this activity, participants should be able to:

1. Describe the nature of the microbial ecosystem and how it relates to the development of antibiotic resistance as an ecological phenomenon.
2. Summarize the scientific literature on the contribution of agricultural antibiotics to antibiotic resistance, including extra-intestinal E.coli, Salmonella, and Campylobacter infections.
3. Identify multiple strategies for limiting the spread of antibiotic resistance.

Statement of Need
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), nearly 50% of antimicrobial use in hospitals is unnecessary or inappropriate (http://www.cdc.gov/getsmart/healthcare/,accessed 2/1/12). While the CDC and others are working to reduce the over-prescription of antibiotics by clinicians, there are no concerted efforts to educate clinicians on other sources of antibiotic resistance. Considering that only about 15% of all antibiotics consumed each year in the US are used by people, a 2003 Institute of Medicine (IOM) Workshop on this topic concluded that "substantial efforts must be made to decrease inappropriate overuse [of antibiotics] in animals and agriculture." There is a need to educate clinicians on the full range of factors that contribute to the development of antibiotic resistant bacteria, as well as specific actions they can take to help limit the spread of antibiotic resistant bacteria. 

Statement of Competency
This activity is designed to address the following ABMS/ACGME competencies: medical knowledge, interpersonal and communication skills, systems-based practice and interdisciplinary teamwork.

The purpose of this program is to enable the learner to increase knowledge about the agricultural use of antibiotics and the effects on human health. Clinical and public policy strategies for reducing the prevalence of antibiotic resistant strains of bacteria will be discussed.
