In an effort to improve antimicrobial utilization and patient outcomes, the Antimicrobial Stewardship Program now offers electronic consultation (eConsultation)!
For non-urgent questions about antimicrobials, please consider eConsultation. This new service is intended to streamline and expedite questions to the Antimicrobial Stewardship Program. eConsultation is not intended to substitute for formal Infectious Diseases consultation and it is expected that a recommendation to seek formal consultation may be the outcome of eConsultation.
Questions appropriate for eConsultation include, but are not restricted to the following:
1.Antimicrobial dosing, pharmacokinetics, or pharmacodynamics, including dosing of vancomycin and aminoglycosides;
2.Interpretation of microbiology results including susceptibility testing;
3.Antibiotic coverage, spectrum, or indications;
4.Antibiotic drug interactions (e.g. Linezolid and SSRIs, amiodarone);
5.Issues with adverse effects, drug monitoring, or allergies.
For an eConsultation, simply:
-log in using your AD username and password, otherwise create a user login account
-add the information and we'll get back to you in 1 business day!
