Accelerating reductions in antimicrobial resistance: Evaluating the effectiveness of an intervention program implemented by an infectious disease consultant

  04 February 2020

Very few infectious disease physicians exist in Japan. A concerted infection control intervention program involving antimicrobial stewardship team and multiple components was designed and implemented in multiple hospitals from 2010. Here, we aimed to retrospectively evaluate the intervention program’s effectiveness.

The intervention program successfully reduced the proportion of drug-resistance in the four hospitals. Centering on systematic education, decision-making support, and implemented and overseen by an infectious disease consultant, this program was shown to be effective where specialist physicians are scarce.
