Early in 2022, The Joint Commission (TJC) published a report detailing their rationale for new and revised antimicrobial stewardship (AMS) requirements in the Medication Management (MM) chapter (Standard MM.09.0.01) for all TJC-accredited hospitals and critical access hospitals.
The updated AMS requirements officially took effect on Jan. 1, 2023 and non-compliance threatens the safety and quality of your facility’s patient care.
Experts from Infectious Disease Connect, Penn Medicine, and The Joint Commission have compiled a list of helpful resources to ensure your facility is meeting these updated requirements, including:
- FAQs for understanding the updated AMS requirements
- Antimicrobial Stewardship Program Implementation Resources
- Antibiotic Stewardship Training Courses
- Pharmacist and Pharmacy-Specific Resources
- A recorded webinar that provides an overview of the updated standards.
