C_APPS Membership Service: Antibiotic Stewardship Tools & Resources
This month’s focus is on Antibiotic Stewardship. This topic remains at the forefront of patient care management even as we are slowly emerging from the recent COVID-19 pandemic. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), in the U.S. more than 2.8 million infections from antibiotic resistant bacteria occur annually and more than 35,000 people die as a direct result.
The included materials provide a selection of resources to assist you in your efforts to ensure your organization’s Antibiotic Stewardship Program is up to date and survey ready. With Antibiotic Awareness Week approaching in November, it is a good time to review your facility’s program.
This Month’s Package Includes:
♦ Antibiotic Stewardship Program Assessment Tool
♦ CDC Antibiotic Use Program Implementation Resource List
♦ Antibiotic Stewardship Program Examples (CDC)
♦ Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) Acute Care Antibiotic Stewardship Resource
♦ AHRQ Antibiotic Time Out Tool
