Drew Memorial to Participate in Statewide Antibiotic Stewardship and Infection Prevention Collaborative

Friday, November 16th, 2018

DMH BuildingDrew Memorial Health System has joined a statewide antibiotic stewardship and infection prevention collaborative recently formed to address the increasing dangers resulting from multiple drug-resistance organisms (MDRO). The program is established with a one-year grant funded by the Arkansas Department of Health and administered by Arkansas Foundation for Medical Care (AFMC). The collaborative will support pharmacists at Arkansas hospitals and nursing homes in their efforts to reduce unnecessary antibiotic prescriptions and to improve infection prevention related to patient transitions between health care facilities. The collaborative includes 37 hospitals and 21 nursing homes across Arkansas.

The collaboration announcement coincides with U.S. Antibiotic Awareness Week Nov. 12-16, 2018.
