Expert Guidance

Antibiotic Stewardship Programs under expert Infectious Disease guidance can both optimize the treatment of infections and reduce adverse events associated with antibiotic use. (1,2) and help improve the quality of patient care (3) and improve patient safety through increased infection cure rates, reduced treatment failures, and increased frequency of correct prescribing for therapy and prophylaxis. (4,5) They also significantly reduce rates of Clostridium difficile infections (6,7,8) and antibiotic resistance. (9, 10) Moreover these programs often achieve these benefits while saving money.
