Pediatric ASP Toolkit

Accountability

A pediatric infectious diseases physician is the ideal physician leader. Many hospitals effectively use a co-leadership model with an infectious diseases physician and pharmacist. In circumstances when an infectious diseases-trained physician leader is not available, other physician ASP leaders could be hospitalists, adult ID physicians, or other physicians interested in improving the use of antibiotics. In 2018, the median FTE for a pediatric infectious diseases physician at 60 United States’ children’s hospitals was 0.3 (IQR: 0.14 to 1.0).
