Abstract

Amongst 325 patients receiving restricted antimicrobials whose management was subject to antimicrobial stewardship prospective audit and feedback, adherence to advice was 78%. Non-adherence was associated with diabetic patients, giving more than 1 piece of advice and receipt of piperacillin/tazobactam therapy, and was inversely associated with liver disease. Adherence to advice was associated with a one third reduction in duration of antimicrobial use without adversely impacting other infection-related patient outcomes.
