Details

The Department of Health has produced resources for use in secondary care settings on European Antibiotic Awareness Day including a checklist of the main considerations for responsible prescribing.

ARHAI has also produced guidance on antimicrobial stewardship: ‘Start smart - then focus’ which is supported by the web banner and the newly released antimicrobial prescribing and stewardship competencies. ‘Start Smart then Focus’ gives an outline of an evidence-based approach to the use of antimicrobial agents in the secondary healthcare setting.
