Decreased Overall and Inappropriate Antibiotic Prescribing in a Veterans Affairs Emergency Department Following A Peer-Comparison-Based Stewardship Intervention
Antibiotic prescribing is very common in emergency departments (EDs). Optimal stewardship intervention strategies in EDs are not well defined.
A peer-comparison based stewardship intervention directed at ED clinicians was associated with reductions in overall and unnecessary oral antibiotic prescribing. There is potential to further improve antibiotic use as suboptimal prescribing remained common.
