Antibiotic Stewardship


Core Elements of Antibiotic Stewardship

CDC's Core Elements of Antibiotic Stewardship offer providers and facilities a set of key principles to guide efforts to improve antibiotic use and thus advance patient safety and improve outcomes. These frameworks complement existing guidelines and standards from key healthcare partner organizations, including the Infectious Diseases Society of America, the Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America, the American Society of Health System Pharmacists, the Society of Infectious Diseases Pharmacists, and The Joint Commission.
