Make a difference in antimicrobial stewardship. Join us in Baltimore, November 14-15, 2018! 

IMPORTANCE OF ANTIBIOTIC STEWARDSHIP RESEARCH

Modern medicine is largely dependent on the efficacy of antibiotics and other antimicrobials. Yet, the ability to treat infections successfully with antibiotics is hampered by resistance due to their overuse and misuse. Well-documented and properly coordinated strategies like stewardship of antibiotics, expanded surveillance of antibiotic resistance, investment in related practical research, as well as investment in new drug development and diagnostic testing can work to reverse this alarming trend.
All healthcare facilities can improve patient outcomes and antibiotic resistance trends by focusing on efforts to eliminate unnecessary antibiotic therapies and raising the patients' understanding of this issue. Implementing comprehensive programs to help providers optimize antibiotic use across healthcare settings is of great importance.
Antibiotic stewardship programs and interventions help ensure that patients get the right antibiotics at the right time for the right duration. In addition to improving patient care, there is also cost saving potential. Research into the full potential of antibiotic stewardship is critical in order to continue to make headways on the proper creation and implementation of these programs.
