Juridicious antibiotic use was important to curb resistance. The increasing trend of carbapenem usage in surgical wards was noted since year 2010 despite the current approach of limiting prescribers and the use of a pre-authorized order form. This raised the question of the carbapenem prescribing appropriateness.
From Jan 2014 to April 2014,.. The access to the whole abstract and the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
