In this second program in the antimicrobial stewardship series more specific functions and activities that can be incorporated into your stewardship program will be covered. Specific stewardship activities to consider and highlight the importance of tailoring your program to your institution will be outlined. We will emphasize differences in stewardship activities depending on the type of facility you practice in, e.g. hospital versus nursing home. Finally, references and resources that will provide additional information and assistance as you move forward in developing your unique antimicrobial stewardship program will be shared.
