Antibiotic Stewardship Toolkits
The AHRQ Safety Program for Improving Antibiotic Use aims to improve antibiotic use in acute, long-term, and ambulatory care settings by enhancing antibiotic stewardship programmatic activities and engaging frontline providers to incorporate stewardship into routine clinical practice using the Four Moments of Antibiotic Decision Making.
In each of the toolkits below, you will find materials to develop and improve your antibiotic stewardship program, engage frontline staff in improving prescribing behavior, and diagnose and treat hospitalized patients with common infectious syndromes.
