Title: Role of Education in Antimicrobial Stewardship
Authors: Gyssens, Inge C.
Issue Date: 2018
Citation: MEDICAL CLINICS OF NORTH AMERICA, 102(5), p. 855-871
Abstract: The ability to treat infectious diseases with antimicrobials is an essential component of medical management. Antimicrobial therapy is based on the characteristics of the patient, drug, microorganisms causing the infection, and colonizing flora. Prudent antibiotic use is the only option to delay the emergence of resistance. Training in infectious diseases and knowledge of the principles of responsible antibiotic prescribing and uses must be improved. To change practice, health care professionals should be educated at all levels of their training.
