ICHE Call for Manuscripts: Antimicrobial Stewardship

August 24, 2011

The journal Infection Control and Hospital Epidemiology has announced that it will be publishing a peer-reviewed special issue “devoted to antimicrobial stewardship and its effect on the prevention and control of infection.”

The journal plans on publishing the special issue to coincide with Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America (SHEA)’s spring meeting to be held on April 13-16, 2012 in Jacksonville, Florida.  That meeting will include a leadership forum on antimicrobial stewardship.

The journal is now seeking submissions of “robust scientific investigations of various approaches and the impact of antimicrobial stewardship programs in healthcare.”

According to the journal, it is seeking submission of papers addressing the following:

  • Antimicrobial stewardship for special populations, including pediatrics, oncology, hemodialysis, and critical care
  • Health outcome and cost effectiveness impact of antimicrobial stewardship
  • Use of diagnostic tools and role of microbiology in antimicrobial stewardship
  • Effective implementation of programs in community hospitals, long-term care acute care facilities, outpatient settings and non-acute healthcare settings (e.g., dialysis, ambulatory care and ambulatory surgery centers)
The deadline for submission is October 1, 2011.
