The 5x5 Antimicrobial Audit

Pilot Project Evaluation

Across 2014/15, 15 facilities from NSW local health districts and networks were involved in a 12 month pilot project for the 5x5 Antimicrobial Audit. This project provided cumulative data from over 4600 audit records and prompted over 1000 point-of-care interventions. Results of the pilot provide strong evidence that implementation of this initiative contributes to improvements in the quality of antimicrobial prescribing in wide variety of hospital inpatient settings.

The 5x5 Antimicrobial Audit pilot project was evaluated in July 2015 and the 5x5 Antimicrobial Audit resource package has been updated based on the project’s key learnings.
