AHRQ recruiting acute care hospitals interested in free antibiotic stewardship project

September 20, 2017

The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) Safety Program for Improving Antibiotic Use is now recruiting acute care hospitals, or individual units within hospitals, for participation in a 12-month project, beginning December 2017. This is a free program that incorporates both technical and behavioral components to improve antibiotic prescribing. This program will support hospitals’ efforts to improve antibiotic use, as well as help participating organizations meet The Joint Commission’s new Antimicrobial Stewardship Standard.

For more details — as well as information on upcoming informational webinars about the program — visit the AHRQ Antibiotic Stewardship Project Homepage, or email antibioticsafety@norc.org with questions. (Meg Kilcup)
