Thank you for showing interest in the National Antimicrobial Prescribing Survey (NAPS)

The NAPS is coordinated by a multi-disciplinary team at the National Centre for Antimicrobial Stewardship, and is delivered by the Guidance group.

This survey has been in use since 2011 and has already helped hundreds of Australian Health Care Facilities to assess their antimicrobial prescribing practices. It provides valuable information on the utilisation of antimicrobials within Australia and is endorsed by the Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care.
