Antibiotic StewardshipCAHD Strategy
Antimicrobial stewardship is global issue requiring a system-wide and multi-layered approach. At the health care systems level, CAHD will be participating in the HealthCareCAN Action Roundtable to develop a National Antimicrobial Stewardship Action Plan.
At the professional level, CAHD is working with dental and infectious disease physician colleagues to communicate the critical importance of responsible antimicrobial use.
