The purpose of this Pediatric Antibiotic Stewardship Program (ASP) Toolkit is to provide helpful resources for improving the use of antibiotics in children cared for in all healthcare settings (e.g., inpatient and outpatient, including emergency/urgent care settings). Additionally, this toolkit addresses ways to improve the use of antibiotics in the food we eat. The toolkit is intended for all clinicians interested in improving the use of antibiotics in all settings. This includes frontline clinicians, antimicrobial stewardship teams, and other groups interested in improving antibiotic use. The toolkit is a collaborative effort between the Pediatric Infectious Diseases Society (PIDS) and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and its Section on Infectious Diseases (SOID), and Health Care Without Harm Clinician Champions in Comprehensive Antibiotic Stewardship Group.
