Abstract

Purpose of review Summarize the latest literature and our own clinical experience in the emerging technique of tele-antimicrobial stewardship, and provide practical advice for those considering providing or consuming this service. Recent findings The need for tele-antimicrobial stewardship is high and rising. Although the benefits of antimicrobial stewardship are well documented, tele-antimicrobial stew- ardship is a recent advance, and there is a relative lack of peer-reviewed clinical trials substantiating the impact of telehealth techniques in antimicrobial stewardship. Summary Antimicrobial stewardship is more important today than ever. In some cases, it may not be possible for smaller hospitals to provide comprehensive stewardship services on-site without assistance. However, tele-antimicrobial stewardship partnerships with other centers online may alleviate this burden and improve patient outcomes. 230 Antimicrobial Stewardship (A Pakyz, Section Editor) Introduction Over the last 10–15 years, antimicrobial stewardship nursing facilities, long-term acute care facilities, and am- (AS) has become a key component of quality improve- bulatory practices.
