Antimicrobial Stewardship

PHO promotes and supports antimicrobial stewardship as an effective strategy for limiting inappropriate and excessive antimicrobial use, while improving and optimizing antimicrobial therapy and clinical outcomes for patients. Since 2013, Accreditation Canada mandates that all acute care facilities have an antimicrobial stewardship program (ASP).

There are a number of ways to initiate and sustain an ASP. Click on the links below to find resources and tools to help build your stewardship program.
