Antimicrobial Stewardship Survey
As part of a statewide coalition of partners, the NMHCA is working to gather baseline data about antimicrobial stewardship programs in long-term care. We would appreciate you taking the time to complete a brief questionnaire. These questions should take less than 10 minutes to complete.
