The way we use antibiotics today
or in one patient
directly impacts how effective they will be tomorrow
or in another patient;
antibiotics are a shared resource.
Preserving effective antibiotic treatments requires all of us to do our part.
- About Antimicrobial Resistance
Information about what antibiotic resistance is, diseases and infections commonly associated with antimicrobial resistance, and a fact sheet about antibiotic resistance in Minnesota.
- Antimicrobial Stewardship Programs (ASP)
About creating a ASP in your facility, including guidelines for acute care and a toolkit long term care.
- Antimicrobial Susceptibilities of Selected Pathogens (Antibiogram)
Also known as the antibiogram, includes a compilation of antimicrobial susceptibilities of selected pathogens that have been submitted to the MDH Public Health Laboratory.
Resistance anywhere is resistance everywhere.
Antibiotic overuse increases the development
of drug-resistant germs and
limits treatment options for infections.
You have a role in preventing antibiotic resistance.
