Abstract

Inappropriate antibiotic use is associated with increased antimicrobial resistance and adverse events that can lead to further downstream patient harm. Preventative strategies must be employed to improve antibiotic use while reducing avoidable harm. We use the term "antibiotic never events" to globally recognize and define the most inappropriate antibiotic use.
