Decreased Outpatient Fluoroquinolone Prescribing Using A Multimodal Antimicrobial Stewardship Initiative

  22 May 2020

Fluoroquinolones are prescribed antibiotics in the outpatient setting though they have serious side effects. This study evaluates the impact of stewardship interventions on total and inappropriate prescribing of fluoroquinolones in outpatient settings in a large county hospital and health system.

A multimodal stewardship initiative appears to effectively reduce both total and inappropriate outpatient fluoroquinolone prescriptions.
