Antimicrobial Stewardship Program - Clinical Resources
The Saskatchewan Health Authority uses Firstline to provide health-care workers with evidence-based clinical guidelines, antimicrobial formulary and dosing recommendations, pathogen information and current antimicrobial susceptibility data. Visit their website or search for “Firstline” wherever you get your apps to download the free app on your mobile device.
If you would like to access a PDF version of the antibiogram, please visit the Saskatchewan Health Authority Library website to view the most recent antibiogram files for your local area.
Viral Prescription Pad
The viral prescription pad outlines symptom management options for patients with viral upper respiratory tract infections. It is a useful tool for providing information to patients while avoiding unnecessary antibiotic prescriptions, and is even available in multiple languages.
