Patient safety tool: AHA's antimicrobial stewardship program toolkit

The American Hospital Association, along with six national partners, has released a toolkit to help hospitals and health systems improve their antimicrobial stewardship programs.

The toolkit is comprised of three sections — hospital and health system resources, clinician resources and patient resources. The hospital and health system resources section is divided into two sub-sections, one for organizations looking to develop a new antimicrobial stewardship program and another for organizations looking to enhance existing programs. The clinician resources section includes webinars, implementation guidelines and clinical evidence. The patient resources section includes frequently asked questions, pamphlets and handouts.
