13 October 2023 From Pncar To Reality: "Experiences" From The Territory And Practical Models of Ams

Bologna, Italy

An antimicrobial stewardship program cannot be applied uniformly throughout the territory due to intrinsic heterogeneity (of the structures, of the health organization, of the presence of multidisciplinary professionals, etc.), thus leading to the conclusion that at national level there may be different different but equally effective AMS models; the meeting allows a comparison with different models of different national realities that have active Antimicrobial Stewardship programs.
