Antibiotic stewardship is a set of commitments and actions designed to “optimize the treatment of infections while reducing the adverse events associated with antibiotic use”. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that all nursing homes take steps to improve antibiotic prescribing practices and reduce inappropriate use. As a national directive, everyone should be taking an active role if we are to beat the challenge of super bugs and MDRI! This program was developed to assist in training staff and implementing an effective antibiotic stewardship program in your center.
