Antimicrobial Stewardship

Antimicrobial Stewardship refers to coordinated efforts to reduce and limit the threat of antimicrobial resistance and preserve the effectiveness of existing antimicrobials. Antimicrobial Stewardship also improves patient outcomes and safety by promoting appropriate antimicrobial prescribing, leading to more effective treatments and fewer side effects related to the use of antimicrobials.
