Full text not available from this repository.


Drug-resistant infections are one of the greatest threats to human health, and with resistance on the rise, appropriate antimicrobial stewardship (AMS) is more important than ever. This book, written by nurses for nurses, provides a clear and concise approach to good practice in this vital area. Based on published international research by the editors (and international experts in AMS), this new book explores all aspects of AMS. It explains the practices that ensure optimal use of antibiotics for the best clinical outcome, with both minimal toxicity to the patient and minimal impact on subsequent antimicrobial resistance. The first textbook applied directly to antimicrobial stewardship for nurses, it is underpinned by a competency framework endorsed by scientific and professional societies, including The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE).
