Antimicrobial Stewardship Program–5 Minute Update

25-Jan-2017

On behalf of the Antimicrobial Stewardship Program we would like to extend a huge thank you for the great engagement that we have had to date since our launch in June of 2016.

Please find attached our 5 min update and supporting system wide usage data.  It is important to remember that this information is now a closer look at our current state of antimicrobial use in the Regina General hospital, Pasqua hospital and Wascana Rehabilitation Centre.  The data are from April 2016 through to December of 2016.

Improve Antimicrobial Stewardship

Where ordering or changing an order for an antimicrobial agent, all practitioners are asked to write in the order the reason for the use of the agent or change in the prescription.
