Antimicrobial stewardship has become an important initiative that promotes the appropriate use of all antimicrobial agents and prevents the development of microbial resistance to treatment. Some hospitals, due to services provided or patients served, would benefit to include antifungal stewardship within its stewardship program. This implementation manual defines the growing threat of invasive fungal disease as well as the business case for antifungal stewardship initiatives. Detailed direction for the development of an antifungal stewardship program, as well as measures to assess performance of the program are included in this manual.
