Ontario Antimicrobial Stewardship Program Landscape Survey - The results are in! 

In 2016, Public Health Ontario (PHO) invited hospitals to complete a survey as part of the Ontario Antimicrobial Stewardship Program (ASP) Landscape Initiative.  This voluntary initiative aimed at providing an understanding of how the landscape of antimicrobial stewardship in Ontario hospitals has evolved since it became an Accreditation Canada Required Organizational Practice in 2013 and opportunities for further advancing antimicrobial stewardship across the province. Survey respondents were asked questions about their organization’s ASP including structural elements of their program and strategic elements (“strategies”) that have been implemented.  In this presentation, speakers will share the key results of the survey, including a focus on regional results.
