This educational booklet describes how Therapeutic Drug Monitoring (TDM), combined with the determination of Minimal Inhibitory Concentrations (MIC), helps to optimize antimicrobial prescribing within antimicrobial stewardship (AMS) initiatives. This resource, developed by bioMérieux in collaboration with Professor Jason Roberts, an internationally recognized expert on TDM informs, supports and encourages Infection Preventionists to optimize AMS plans in their facility.

Critical elements in this practical guide include:

  • Relevance of dose optimization
  • Personalization of antibiotic treatment
  • Principles of antimicrobial dosing and PK/PD
  • Usefulness of the MIC
  • Implementation of TDM in daily practice
