Antimicrobial Stewardship in Australian Health Care (the AMS Book)
The publication Antimicrobial Stewardship In Australian Health Care 2018 continues to be enhanced to provide evidence and information to inform antimicrobial stewardship (AMS) strategies and interventions, and their implementation across a range of settings.
*UPDATE – new chapter Antimicrobial Stewardship in community and residential aged care is now available*
The publication Antimicrobial Stewardship In Australian Health Care (the AMS Book) continues to evolve and provide evidence about antimicrobial stewardship (AMS) strategies and interventions and their implementation across a range of settings.
Chapters 1–7 of Antimicrobial Stewardship In Australian Health Care 2018 provide strategies for implementing and sustaining AMS. Chapters 8–12 examine the roles of the different clinicians in AMS. Chapters 13 and beyond consider AMS in settings such as general practice, and specific information to support AMS for children, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and for older people in aged care homes.
Further work on focus areas for AMS will be undertaken and the AMS Book will be updated with additional chapters, over time, such as primary care. As new resources become available, these will be added as hyperlinks to each chapter, or to the appendices.
The following link will guide you to the latest update and to individual chapters for download.
