Faculty in the division of Infectious Diseases lead the Antibiotic Stewardship Programs based at Emory University Hospital Midtown, Emory University Hospital, Grady Memorial Hospital, and the Atlanta VA Medical Center with support from infectious disease-trained pharmacists at each facility. The directors of the antibiotic stewardship programs at each hospital also play an active leadership role in the antibiotic utilization subcommittee of each hospital's Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committee. Individually and as a group, the directors and pharmacists have conducted several studies presented at national meetings and contributed to the published medical literature. Current areas of interest include standardization of antibiotic use by developing local guidelines, a prospective study assessing the impact of elevated MIC to vancomycin on outcomes in patients with MRSA bacteremia, studies to document the prevalence of healthcare associated infections and antibiotic use in hospitals, and the impact of stewardship interventions on C. difficile infections.
