Description

Up to 70% of nursing home residents receive at least one systemic antibiotic per year, with a large proportion of those prescriptions considered unnecessary or inappropriate. Overuse of antibiotics can have serious consequences in older adults, including side effects, drug interactions, the emergence of antimicrobial resistance, and C. difficile infections. Residents are particularly vulnerable to the overuse of antibiotics, and the associated poor health outcomes. 

   

Using the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)'s Core Elements of Antibiotic Stewardship for Nursing Homes, this valuable tookit helps users perform a gap analysis of the facility's current antimicrobial stewardship program (ASP) or to initiate, grow and sustain an effective ASP to improve facility performance and resident outcomes. 

     

The toolkit is designed for use by either a consultant pharmacist or a long-term care facility as an in-service training program.
