Abstract

The resistance to antimicrobial is considered one of the most important risks that affect public health and health
care. Antimicrobial stewardship programs (ASPs) contain a series of interventions that decrease the inappropriate
use of antimicrobials. There are many barriers to the implementation of ASPs. To improve the use of antibiotics,
it is important to overcome these barriers. In the present study, we searched for articles about the barriers of
implementing ASPs using the keyword “ASPs†in the PubMed database. The present study found that the most
common hurdles are lack of training, knowledge, interprofessional conflict, interspecialty conflict, and lack of
resources.
