Mission Statement

The Antimicrobial Stewardship Programs (ASPs) at each of the AHN facilities are a multidisciplinary team consisting of Infectious Diseases physicians, pharmacists, microbiologists and infection preventionists.

The goal of Antimicrobial Stewardship is to ensure the selection of the right antimicrobial, at the right dose and for the right duration in order to effectively cure infection while minimizing toxicity and emergence of resistance.
