Abstract: AMR has assumed greater importance in health-care settings. Preserving the efficacy of antimicrobial agents is considered a critical step in fighting communicable diseases. One of the approaches is to have evidence-based antibiotic usage policy in hospital and standard treatment guidelines for common infectious diseases. This document focuses on the mechanism to develop a practical hospital antibiotic policy and standard treatment guidelines. It also contains information on various effective strategies for implementation of standard treatment guidelines. A suggested model hospital STG for community-acquired pneumonia in adults is included.
