Impact of the antimicrobial stewardship program on hospital-acquired candidemia
Antibiotic stewardship programs reduce antibiotic use without negative clinical outcomes. However, epidemiological data describing the relationship between implementing antimicrobial stewardship and candidemia incidence are scarce. This study aimed to evaluate the effect of antibiotic stewardship on the incidence of hospital acquired candidemia. We conducted a retrospective study from April 2017 to September 2020. We reviewed patients that were treated with three broad-spectrum antipseudomonal agents: carbapenem, tazobactam/piperacillin, and cefepime.
