Improving Antimicrobial Stewardship surveillance: development and implementation of a national surveillance system including open access of data to drive quality improvement

  27 October 2020

Public Health England (PHE) developed an antimicrobial stewardship (AMS) surveillance system and conducted a national pilot to test the feasibility of centrally collecting data from AMS audits performed by NHS Hospital Trusts. The system was simplified, focusing on requirements of the NHS AMR CQUIN (Commissioning for Quality and Innovation; a financial incentive quality improvement scheme).

This study presents results and user feedback from the national pilot, and results from using the AMS surveillance system as part of the AMR CQUIN.
