Dr. Valerie Vaughn was awarded a new grant (7K08HS026530-02) from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) to: 1) quantify antibiotic overuse at hospital discharge, 2) examine barriers to and facilitators of appropriate antibiotic treatment at hospital discharge, and 3) to develop a provider-facing behavioral intervention to improve appropriate use of antibiotics at hospital discharge. This project runs from October 1, 2020 through March 31, 2025.
