Impact of the antimicrobial stewardship program on hospital-acquired candidemia

  09 September 2022

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. 

Decreased broad-spectrum antibiotic use (particularly carbapenem) by our antimicrobial stewardship term may reduce hospital-acquired candidemia incidences.
