Abstract

This is the first report from the gentamicin and vancomycin quality improvement programme (GaV QIP) commissioned in 2010 by the Healthcare Associated Infection (HAI) Task Force in collaboration with the Scottish Antimicrobial Prescribing Group (SAPG). This work has been delivered as a joint project between the University of Strathclyde and the SAPG Information workstream. The programme aims to assess the impact of implementing SAPG endorsed guidance on the use of gentamicin (following either the Hartford or the Greater Glasgow and Clyde [GGC] nomogram) and vancomycin across NHS Scotland.
