IDSA/SHEA Guidelines for the implementation of Antibiotic Stewardship Programs (ASPs) recommend the development and use of facility-specific practice guidelines to improve appropriate use of antibiotics (Clin Infect Dis. (2016) 62 (10):e51-e77.).

Specific improvements you can expect are:

  • increased likelihood of adequate initial therapy
  • use of narrower-spectrum antibiotic regimens
  • earlier switch from IV to oral therapy
  • shorter duration of treatment
  • reductions in adverse events, mortality, length of stay, and readmission
  • greater efficiency and lower treatment costs
