Core Elements of Antibiotic Stewardship: #3 Pharmacy Expertise and #4 Action

December 6, 2023
for Hospital/Pharmacy/Home Health Staff

In November 2022, the CDC released Priorities for Hospital Core Element Implementation (Priorities) as supplemental guidance to help enhance the quality and impact of existing ASPs. The Priorities Table highlights highly effective implementation approaches and is supported by evidence and stewardship experts. Like the Hospital Core Elements, the uptake of the Priorities is tracked and reported through the CDC’s National Healthcare Safety Network. It can be viewed on the Antibiotic Resistance & Patient Safety Portal.
