Abstract

This practice forum reports experiences with the development of a unit-specific antibiogram and planning for its implementation. Involvement of internal and external facilitators was a key strategy for addressing issues, including data limitations, coordination, and planning. These activities were incorporated and reported as part of the facility's broader antimicrobial stewardship program, and represent the first step in a set of planned projects to evaluate the impact of antibiograms on provider behavior and patient outcomes.
