about this item

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) challenges the treatment of clinical infections. Despite the decline in infectious diseases mortality rates, infections are more difficult to eliminate or contain in the host, resulting in poorer outcomes to treatment, longer hospital inpatient stays, and increased mortality.Written by international experts in the field and supported by the review of the available evidence, including example case studies, Antimicrobial Stewardship provides a practical how-to guide on this growing area. Divided into three sections, the first sets the scene, looking at the key problems of antimicrobial resistance. Section two examines and identifies the key components of an antimicrobial stewardship program. Finally, the book explores specialist areas of antimicrobial stewardship ranging from antimicrobial pharmacokinetics and dynamics, to near patient testing, and infection biomarkers.Antimicrobial Stewardship will be a valuable and practical resource for infection trainees, as well as specialists from the medical, pharmacy, and nursing professions.
