Antimicrobial Stewardship (AMS)

According to the Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission, Antimicrobial stewardship (AMS) is the careful and responsible management of medications used to treat or prevent infections. It involves activities that promote and support best practice antimicrobial prescribing and use.

Our AMS Complete Clinical Package is instrumental in helping you to meet your requirements under Quality Standard 3 requirement (3)(g) and Standard 8 requirement (3)(d) which ask you to demonstrate actions to minimise infection-related risks to residents, your staff and the wider community.
