Look for Opportunities to Improve Pediatric Antimicrobial Use
Your hospital will continue to expand its antimicrobial stewardship program for pediatric patients.
Most stewardship approaches are similar to adults...local antibiotic guidelines, antibiograms, restricted antimicrobials, etc.
But be prepared for peds-specific considerations...such as the need for a pediatric-specific antibiogram. Antimicrobial resistance to E. coli and other bacteria may differ from adults.
