Abstract

Antibiotic stewardship interventions targeting community-acquired pneumonia have been successful in reducing antibiotic overuse in the short term, but the sustainability of their effects has not been investigated. We report that improvements in antibiotic use due to a syndrome-focused intervention for community-acquired pneumonia were sustained 3 years later without additional intervention.
