Guidelines for Peer Review

JAMA. 1977;237(10):1001-1002. doi:10.1001/jama.1977.03270370073032

Eighteen guideline-audits of antimicrobial usage have been prepared for use by hospital staffs for peer review. They may also be used as a national standard to assess the appropriate use of antimicrobial agents in hospitals. It is hoped that the guidelines will stimulate wide discussion and national peer review and will ultimately result in improved care of patients with infectious disease.
