Open Forum Infect Dis. 2020 Sep 8;7(10):ofaa402. doi: 10.1093/ofid/ofaa402. eCollection 2020 Oct.


Staying current on literature related to antimicrobial stewardship can be challenging given the ever-increasing number of published articles. The Southeastern Research Group Endeavor (SERGE-45) identified antimicrobial stewardship-related peer-reviewed literature that detailed an actionable intervention for 2019. The top 13 publications were selected using a modified Delphi technique. These manuscripts were reviewed to highlight the actionable intervention used by antimicrobial stewardship programs to provide key stewardship literature for teaching and training and to identify potential intervention opportunities within one's institution.

Keywords: antibiotics; antimicrobial stewardship; infectious diseases; metrics; resistance.
