Antimicrobial stewardship in care homes
Staff in three care homes in the Northern Trust area commenced work alongside four Antrim GP practices with the aim of reducing the GP practices inappropriate antimicrobial prescribing by 10% for the care home residents. An existing Public Health Agency decision aid/checklist tool was tested and refined based on feedback from staff involved in this pilot. The Antimicrobial Stewardship Group had a learning event in one of participating care homes in the pilot – Massereene Manor.
