    Fantastic work Dr. Bragg and Dr. Ward! An important antimicrobial stewardship initiative promoting narrow spectrum, first line antibiotic use and supporting evidence that the majority of patients with a listed PCN allergy are not a true allergy. How did you integrate the guideline into clinical care to ensure it was used? What were your family of measures, specifically balancing measures (ie. any unintended consequences)? Look forward to hearing further results as you spread your QI work to other surgical areas in your organization. Congratulations to the St. Mikes team!
