Description:
A working group of the Strategy for the control of Antimicrobial Resistance in Ireland (SARI) produced recommendations for development of antimicrobial stewardship programmes in hospitals in 2003. These recommendations have been updated, in light of more recent evidence and international guidelines. The updated guidelines outline: 1. Rationale for antimicrobial stewardship in hospitals 2. Resources and structures that need to be in place to develop stewardship programmes 3. Specific guidance on stewardship interventions. These updated guidelines support recommendations made in the SARI report (2001), the SARI Strategy 2009 – 2011, and the HSE’s National Strategy for Healthcare Associated Infection and Antimicrobial Resistance (2007). Antimicrobial stewardship is included as a standard within the National Standards for the Prevention and Control of Healthcare Associated Infections, produced by the Health Information and Quality Authority (HIQA). Healthcare institutions will be required to implement antimicrobial stewardship programmes, in order to comply with this standard.
