New Playbook for Improving Antibiotic Use in Hospitals
CDC, National Quality Forum (NQF), and Hospital Corporation of America (HCA), in collaboration with more than 25 professional societies and national stakeholders, today released a practical guide to help hospital leaders improve antibiotic use in their facilities.
Featuring a flexible structure and real-world examples, the “Antibiotic Stewardship in Acute Care: A Practical Playbook,” is based on CDC’s Core Elements of Hospital Antibiotic Stewardship Programs and will help hospitals and health systems create and strengthen antibiotic stewardship programs.
For more information on the Playbook, join NQF’s National Quality Partners for a webinar today from 1:30-3:00pm ET. Click here to register.
In addition, read more about the Playbook on CDC’s Safe Healthcare Blog. Drs. Arjun Srinivasan and Ed Septimus, co-chairs of NQF’s National Quality Partners’ antibiotic stewardship action team, delve into the details of this helpful tool.
