Acute Care Hospital Toolkit
AHRQ's new Toolkit To Improve Antibiotic Use in Acute Care Hospitals helps acute care facilities develop or strengthen antibiotic stewardship programs and improve patient outcomes.
The toolkit guides users through its signature "Four Moments of Antibiotic Decision Making," a step-by-step approach for physicians to achieve optimal antibiotic prescribing. Among its more than 50 tools, AHRQ's toolkit includes best practices for diagnosis and treatment of infections, approaches to improve safety culture and sustain overall success, plus tactical recommendations to demonstrate the value of an antibiotic stewardship program to hospital administrators and prescribers.
The toolkit is based on the experiences of more than 400 hospitals that participated in AHRQ's Safety Program for Improving Antibiotic Use.
