Pharmacist Program Coordinator - State of Nebraska Antimicrobial Stewardship Pharmacist & ASAP Pharmacy Coordinator

Pharmacist Program Coordinator Position Highlights:

Nebraska Medicine is offering an exciting opportunity for an Infectious Diseases (ID)-trained pharmacist to serve as the state Antimicrobial Stewardship Lead Pharmacist and Pharmacy Coordinator for Nebraska ASAP (Antimicrobial Stewardship Assessment and Promotion) Program. This individual will work alongside Medical Directors for ASAP and the Nebraska DHHS healthcare-associated infection and antimicrobial resistance (HAI/AR) program to lead statewide antimicrobial stewardship efforts. This is an established role that convenes the statewide Antibiotic Stewardship subcommittee of the HAI Committee to discuss ideas, issues, and initiatives that foster stewardship efforts across the state and facilitate any future Nebraska Antimicrobial Stewardship Summit. In addition, the successful candidate for this position will provide one-on-one discussions with acute care hospitals, long-term care facilities, and urgent care centers, present webinar-style educational sessions, and update/maintain the educational content on the Nebraska ASAP website and YouTube channel.

The role of ASAP Program Coordinator involves developing tailored guidance to help healthcare facilities mitigate gaps in CDC Core Elements for their antibiotic stewardship programs identified during assessments conducted in coordination with an ASAP medical director. Nebraska ASAP works with Nebraska DHHS to review annual NHSN Survey responses and Antimicrobial Use/AR results to identify additional facilities needing assistance with Core Element implementation to promote appropriate utilization, surveillance, and governance of antimicrobial agents. A significant portion of functions can be accomplished remotely, but in- person meetings may be required. Office space is available in an academic environment with the nationally recognized Nebraska Medicine Antimicrobial Stewardship Program where collaboration and cross-coverage can occur. Adjunct faculty status is available in the College of Pharmacy at the University of Nebraska Medical Center.

Ideal candidates will be formally trained or have significant experience in Infectious Diseases pharmacy practice. Public speaking, development of engaging educational content, and the ability to build strong relationships with stakeholders is essential. Interest in research and publication is strongly encouraged.
