Antibiotic Stewardship

Antibiotics are a life-saving resource, but the emergence of drug resistance in bacteria undermines the effectiveness of current antibiotics and our ability to treat and prevent disease.

The CDC estimates that more than 2 million illnesses and 23,000 deaths are caused annually by antibiotic resistance. These alarming numbers have led to national and international calls to action.

The NE QIN-QIO is working with outpatient providers to support their efforts around antibiotic stewardship, which involves measuring and improving antibiotic prescribing.
