Our goal is to improve patient outcomes, optimize antimicrobial use and reduce healthcare resources related to the prophylaxis and treatment of infectious diseases at Vanderbilt University Medical Center.

Policy

VASP employs a multifaceted approach to antimicrobial oversight, including prospective monitoring as well as feedback and recommendations to clinicians and patients regarding antimicrobial use.

The program collaborates with the Division of Infectious Diseases, Infection Control and Prevention, Clinical Microbiology and the Department of Pharmaceutical Services.
