Evidence has demonstrated that hospital-based Antibiotic Stewardship Programs (ASPs) significantly reduce hospital rates of antibiotic resistant infections however most existing ASPs fail to address the upstream causes of greater community exposure to antibiotic resistant bacteria through the misuse of antibiotics outside the hospital.  An estimate of 70% of overall tonnage of antimicrobial agents sold in the US are distributed for use in food-producing animals.  Speakers will detail strategies documented in the Antimicrobial Stewardship through Food Animal Agriculture Toolkit Module.  Developed by an ad hoc subcommittee of the Clinician Champions in Comprehensive Antibiotic Stewardship (CCCAS) Collaborative and applying the CDC’s Core Elements of Antimicrobial  Stewardship, this module provides guidance and tools gleaned from successful hospital programs that have incorporated food procurement and clinician advocacy strategies into their hospital-based antibiotic stewardship programs. https://noharm-global.org/CCCASModule.  The CCCAS Collaborative is a joint initiative of Health Care Without Harm (HCWH) , Pediatric Infectious Disease Society (PIDS), and the national Sharing Antimicrobial Reports for Pediatric Stewardship (SHARPS) workgroup.
