Outpatient antibiotic prescribing patterns in pediatric academic and community practices.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Little is known about antibiotic prescribing differences between academic and community outpatient settings. This retrospective, cross-sectional chart review compares compliance with Infectious Diseases Society of America and American Academy of Pediatrics prescribing guidelines for otitis media, sinusitis, and pharyngitis in academic and affiliated community practices. The study results for correct antibiotic prescribing rate in the academic setting (67%) compared with the community setting (21%) demonstrate the urgent need for stewardship in community outpatient clinics.
