Welcome to the Montana Antimicrobial Stewardship Collaborative
April 6, 2017
The Montana Antimicrobial Stewardship (ABS) Collaborative is a group effort to create a statewide Antimicrobial Stewardship Program (ASP) implementation plan. The goal is to collaborate, assist and offer resources, expertise and available tools through multiple programs into a combined statewide ASP implementation plan for use by Montana inpatient and outpatient facilities.
Montana ABS Collaborative Members include:
- Mountain-Pacific: RHIC, QIO and ICAR programs
- Montana Hospital Association: HIIN, FLEX and STRIVE programs
- Montana Department of Public Health and Human Services: Communicable Disease and Epidemiology program
- University of Montana: Skaggs School of Pharmacy program
We will be providing education, outreach and technical assistance as you work your way through the implementation of your antimicrobial stewardship program.
Montana ABS Collaborative resources, including webinar material, best practices, templates and ASP links, can be found here on our ABS Resources page.
We look forward to going on this journey with you.
