A Practical Guide to Antimicrobial Stewardship in Hospitals

The objective of this booklet is to provide practical recommendations for healthcare workers in hospitals to improve the quality of antibiotic prescribing and thereby improve patient clinical outcomes.

Most of the recommendations within this booklet have been adapted from the IDSA Guidelines, the Australian Hospital Stewardship Guidance produced by the Australian Commission on Safety And Quality in Healthcare National Stewardship Guidance from Scotland, the UK and, although less literature is available, from other countries whenever possible.
