The purpose

Inappropriate antibiotic use is a major public health concern. Excessive exposure to antibiotics results in emergence and spread of drug-resistant bacteria, potentially avoidable adverse drug reactions, and increased healthcare utilization and cost. As antibiotic prescribing in emergency departments and urgent care centers remains unchecked, national professional organizations including the Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA) and the Society for Healthcare Epidemiology (SHEA), and an Executive Order from the President of the United States, recommend expansion of antimicrobial stewardship to these ambulatory care settings. The goal of antimicrobial stewardship is to effectively promote judicious antibiotic use in all healthcare settings, yet stewardship programs have not achieved their potential in terms of either reach or effectiveness. Reach has been limited by implementation mostly in inpatient settings; at the same time, recent critical experiments in behavioral science suggest that the effectiveness of existing stewardship programs could be greatly augmented through inclusion of behavioral nudges, benchmarked audit and feedback, and peer-to-peer comparisons.
