Prognosis SOMA: Antibiotics is a medical learning app that allows players to test their antibiotic management skills, and understand why clinical decisions are made; all while earning up to 1.5 AOA Category 1-B CME credits. The product was created in partnership with the American Osteopathic Association (AOA) and the A.T. Still University School of Osteopathic Medicine in Arizona (ATSU-SOMA).
Launched in October 2017, Prognosis SOMA: Antibiotics is designed to help players understand the thought process and rationale underlying today’s most appropriate antibiotic stewardship decisions. The app was originally intended for ATSU-SOMA medical students, but its success quickly spread to other audiences including pharmacists, nurses, and other healthcare professionals who value the criticality of antibiotic stewardship and want to thrive as world-class decision makers.
Prognosis SOMA: Antibiotics learning modules (or cases) cover the most common instances in which antibiotics are prescribed - and often misused. In order for a successful outcome, each case requires careful thinking and a critical analysis of existing antibiotic prescribing literature. All cases are based on the Choosing Wisely initiative of the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM), an effort designed to help physicians avoid unnecessary tests and procedures in patient care. The app (including all its cases) is available for free, as a mobile app, for both Android and iOS.
