Mission

The Antimicrobial Stewardship Program aims to optimize antimicrobial effectiveness using a structured institutional approach while minimizing the potential for adverse events, antimicrobial drug resistance and costs. 

Objectives 

  • Advising best practice policies and guidelines for the use of antimicrobial agents at the MUHC;

  • Educating health professionals on matters related to antimicrobials and their appropriate use;

  • Tracking (surveillance) antimicrobial use within the institution;

  • Reporting (feedback) information on antibiotic use and resistance profiles to relevant clinical and administrative staff;

  • Researching the impact of specific interventions on antimicrobial use in the MUHC.
