ESGAP/SWAB Technical Workshop on measuring quality and quantity of antibiotic use
Nijmegen (The Netherlands)
“If you do not measure, you cannot improve it” (Lord Kelvin) is a paradigm that is especially true for Antimicrobial Stewardship Programs. International Guidelines (IDSA) consider it very important to make use of the large amount of data that we -willingly or unwillingly- collect in everyday practice. The main goal of this ESGAP/SWAB course is to provide participants with practical tools to measure, interpret and present data on the quantity and quality of antimicrobial use in their facilities. Experts in the field (see Course program) will guide them through this process.
