Antibiotics are powerful tools for preventing and controlling infection. Knowing when and how to administer these agents is crucial for a nurse practitioner’s clinical practice. This CE offering begins with a review of the use and misuse of antibiotic medications before moving into a detailed explanation on the mechanism of action for penicillin and other antibiotic classes. The session then discusses the uses for combination drugs and drugs for bacterial infections that are resistant to empirical treatment. Additional content in this session is devoted to the treatment of bacterial infections in patients in special populations, including those with penicillin allergies.

This CE offering contains information on the following antibiotic classes:

  • Cell wall synthesis inhibitors
  • Bactericidal and bacteriostatic protein synthesis inhibitors
  • DNA and RNA synthesis inhibitors
  • Antimetabolites
