Overview of possible stalling factors
Overview of TIMERS
Review of debridement methods
A review of advanced treatment options

Inappropriate or unnecessary antibiotic use contributes to the global problem of antimicrobial resistance. Given the increasing numbers of deaths that result from drug-resistant-infections, antimicrobial stewardship (AMS) has emerged as a viable approach to reverse this trend.

This practical and heavily referenced white paper is a guide to creating an effective, evidence-based AMS program in wound care settings to reduce the use of systemic antibiotic therapy while at the same time preventing or treating infection.

This guide provides wound care professionals with specifics on how to craft a successful AMS program in their facilities. The following topics are covered:

This white paper discusses the following topics:

Epidemiology of antibiotic resistance
Principles of AMS
Rationale for an AMS program in wound care
