Appropriateness & Stewardship in Asymptomatic Bacteriuria (ASAB) Initiative

Antimicrobial Stewardship Program (ASP)

Antimicrobial Stewardship has developed evidence-based tools to assist clinicians with optimizing urine testing and identification of urinary tract infections.

This is an interdisciplinary, province-wide project with goals to reduce inappropriate urine testing and antibiotic treatment of asymptomatic bacteriuria.
