Trust-wide microbiology electronic referral system supports antimicrobial stewardship
from The Pharmaceutical Journal
Antimicrobial stewardship can be defined as the approach to promoting and monitoring judicious use of antimicrobials to preserve their future effectiveness. With demands on microbiological clinical services at Basildon and Thurrock University Hospitals increasing over recent years, requests for clinical advice could no longer be facilitated by a direct telephone call from clinical teams to the pathology team.
