Collaborative to improve the
use of antimicrobials in children.


SHARPS Mission

The Sharing Antimicrobial Reports for Pediatric Stewardship (SHARPS) collaborative focuses on establishing best practices for the use of antimicrobials among hospitalized children. Our mission is to utilize prescribing data to develop interventions that improve the safety of children receiving antimicrobials, improve the clinical outcomes of children, and decrease the rate at which resistance develops. The mission will be accomplished with the "all teach, all learn" philosophy.
