New Resources on Co-management Agreements and Antimicrobial Stewardship Now Available
Valuable new resources are now available to help IDSA members establish co-management agreements with a hospital or healthcare system for antimicrobial stewardship, infection control and prevention services. These resources, including a guide to co-management agreements and two studies examining ID physician executive hourly rates and maximum annual incentive compensation, provide background, rationale, and sample contract language. These can be found in IDSA’s Value of the ID Specialists’ Toolkit (member login required).

The toolkit also has valuable Antimicrobial Stewardship Resources to help IDSA members implement an antimicrobial stewardship program (ASP) at a healthcare facility, including materials from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, The Joint Commission, Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, and the Veterans Health Administration.  Additionally, the ASP Policy & Procedure Template offers a customizable program outline that provides language for ASP policy, procedure, personnel composition, interventions, surveillance, and a list of suggested restricted antimicrobials.
