Data Capture to Measure, Track, and Improve Antibiotic Use


Data Capture to Measure, Track, and Improve Antibiotic Use

March 2, 2023 — 1:00PM–2:35PM





The Duke-Margolis Center for Health Policy researchers policy approaches to combat drug-resistant infections and antimicrobial resistance (AMR), a top global public health threat. With support from the Wellcome Trust, Duke-Margolis is investigating next steps toward administrative and legislative pull-incentives for novel antibiotics and feasible reforms to advance bacterial diagnostic development, coverage, reimbursement, and utilization.


About the Webinar

Policymakers, researchers, and stakeholders concerned by drug-resistant infections are invited to join Duke-Margolis for a public webinar to learn about capturing data on antibiotic use and antibiotic resistance, and why doing so is important for clinical care, antibiotic stewardship, and antibiotic development.

Dr. Mark McClellan, director of the Center, will moderate two panel discussions throughout which panelists will discuss how to identify and answer clinical questions with antibiotic use data, as well as policy approaches to improve data capture for antibiotic use. Discussion will inform policy approaches that post-market incentives for novel antibiotics might include to improve how data is captured to measure, track, and improve antibiotic use and patient outcomes.
