 Antibiotics Overuse

antibiotics overuse

The Society for Pediatric Urgent Care (SPUC),  representing 325 health care providers in 28 states and 2 foreign countries, recognizes the need for continued improvement in appropriate antibiotic prescribing practices across all healthcare settings, as identified in the recent CDC/Pew Charitable Trust study.This study complements a 2016 study evaluating inappropriate antibiotic use across the healthcare industry which did not include the urgent care setting.  SPUC is dedicated to working with the urgent care industry and healthcare community at large to provide our members with the tools and support necessary for judicious and appropriate antibiotic use. SPUC was recently the ONLY pediatric representation at the recent Urgent Care Antibiotic Stewardship program in collaboration with the CDC, the UCA and the Antibiotic Resistance Action Center. This joint effort resulted in multiple ideas to achieve our goals in antibiotic stewardship, and we are looking forward to instituting these plans.
