Do we need to adopt antifungal stewardship programmes

Source
European Journal of Hospital Pharmacy
Year of publication

Abstract

This journal article concludes that the presence of a multidisciplinary team, including an infection control specialist and a clinical pharmacist, would limit the prescription of advanced antifungal agents as empirical therapy. The authors state that this team would control the de-escalation process—where applicable—leading to a reduction in costs and, probably, a decrease in the emergence of resistant Candida species. These facts contribute to the broader discussion on the adoption of antifungal stewardship programmes.
