Why is antimicrobial stewardship important to you?In 2018, the Providence Health Care Antimicrobial Stewardship Program asked physicians, pharmacists and nurses this question.
Their responses, as well as our coordinated interventions to optimize antimicrobial prescribing are highlighted in the 2018 annual report here. >
The report highlights activities and significant achievements made in achieving improved health outcomes and reducing antimicrobial resistance.
The program was created in April 2013, with a mission to ensure our patients and residents receive timely, effective and safe antimicrobial therapy. Thank you to our partners who have worked with us to promote responsible antimicrobial use.
