National Hospital Antibiotic Stewardship Program

AHRQ, in conjunction with the Johns Hopkins Medicine Armstrong Institute for Patient Safety and Quality and NORC at The University of Chicago, created the AHRQ Safety Program for Improving Antibiotic Use to develop and implement a bundle of interventions designed to improve antibiotic stewardship and antibiotic prescribing practices across acute care, long-term care, and ambulatory care facilities across the United States.

Acute-care hospitals across the United States and Puerto Rico can now register for this 12-month project, which begins in December 2017. Register for one of the informational webinars to learn how participation can benefit your patients and hospital.

Future cohorts are planned for long-term care facilities (beginning December 2018) and ambulatory and urgent care facilities (December 2019).
