Abstract

The primary job responsibility of infection preventionists (IPs) is to lead organizational initiatives that prevent and control health care-associated infections. Increasingly, IPs are participating in activities that support antimicrobial stewardship programs (ASPs). We conducted a survey of Association of Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology members practicing in acute care facilities to determine the degree of their involvement in ASP activities.
