New Resource: New Study Sets Baseline to Measure Quality of Antibiotic Prescribing in U.S. Hospitals

May 04, 2021 | Kimberly Nalley

The CDC published a new study in JAMA Network Open showing that in 2015, more than half of antibiotics prescribed in U.S hospitals did not follow recommended prescribing practices. On the same day, The Pew Charitable Trusts announced the first-ever national targets to reduce inappropriate antibiotic prescribing in U.S. hospitals.

In a new Safe Healthcare blog post, CDC’s Dr. Melinda Neuhauser and Pew’s Dr. David Hyun share progress that has been made in improving antibiotic stewardship since 2015, discuss why stronger antibiotic stewardship programs are critical to improve prescribing, and outline three key ways to meet targets for improving antibiotic use through antibiotic stewardship programs.
