Abstract

JUNAID, E et al. Antimicrobial stewardship in a rural regional hospital - growing a positive culture. SAMJ, S. Afr. med. j. [online]. 2018, vol.108, n.7, pp.546-550. ISSN 2078-5135.  http://dx.doi.org/10.7196/samj.2018.v108i7.13149.

Antimicrobial stewardship programmes have been introduced worldwide in response to the rise in antimicrobial resistance. The World Health Organization has mandated each Member State to produce a plan to address this problem. We report on the organic development of an antibiotic stewardship programme in a rural regional hospital in a resource-limited setting in South Africa. This has resulted in organisational change with increased awareness, participation, monitoring and education in antibiotic stewardship throughout the hospital.
