Journal CME June - Evaluation of antibiotic prescribing in emergency departments and urgent care centers across the Veterans’ Health Administration

ARTICLE: 

Evaluation of antibiotic prescribing in emergency departments and urgent care centers across the Veterans’ Health Administration

OBJECTIVE:

Assessments of antibiotic prescribing in ambulatory care have largely focused on viral acute respiratory infections (ARIs). It is unclear whether antibiotic prescribing for bacterial ARIs should also be a target for antibiotic stewardship efforts. In this study, we evaluated antibiotic prescribing for viral and potentially bacterial ARIs in patients seen at emergency departments (EDs) and urgent care centers (UCCs).
