Get Smart: Know When Antibiotics Work

Antibiotic resistance is a growing problem and the main cause of this problem is misuse of antibiotics. CDC’s Get Smart: Know When Antibiotics Work program works to make sure antibiotics are prescribed only when they are needed and used as they should. All healthcare facilities and their administrators and providers have a role to play in antibiotic stewardship, including acute care hospitals, outpatient clinics and offices, emergency departments and nursing homes.


The CDC has now published the Core Elements of Outpatient Antibiotic Stewardship in the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR): Recommendations and Reports, to provide guidance for antibiotic stewardship in outpatient settings.
