Section 2: Antimicrobial Stewardship Operations

The content within Section 2 is directed at providing you with the knowledge, skills, and resources to assess the current and ever-changing state of one’s Antimicrobial Stewardship Program(ASP). The mini-lectures within the first eLearning will introduce the concept of the Antimicrobial Stewardship Toolbelt.
