The goal of our Antimicrobial Stewardship Program (ASP) is to ensure the optimal selection, dosage, and duration of antimicrobial treatment are chosen that result in the best outcomes with minimal toxicity to the patient and minimal impact on subsequent resistance. We tackle the issue of growing antibiotic resistance through a number of initiatives that follow recommendations in the CDC Core Elements of an Antimicrobial Stewardship Program. Current ASP efforts include: pre- authorization of restricted antimicrobials, required indications on orders, prospective audit and feedback for several broad spectrum antimicrobials, automatic stop dates on orders, durations and IV to PO ASP recommendation charts, antibiogram and PICU specific antibiogram, and ASP intervention for rapid diagnostic blood culture results. Our mascot, Stewie, advertises and educates on new ASP initiatives. The ID Fellows are involved in most of the initiatives and play an active role in the ASP Committee. Involvement includes: approving restricted antimicrobials, prospective audit and feedback, DJ at the CHP ASP Annual Bug Bowl, and recommending optimal antimicrobials based on rapid diagnostic results.
