  • Complications of antimicrobial therapy, such as multidrug-resistant organisms and Clostridium difficile, commonly affect solid-organ transplant recipients and have been associated with graft loss and mortality. Although opportunities are abundant, antimicrobial stewardship practices guiding appropriate therapy have been infrequently reported in transplant patients. A patient-centered, multidisciplinary structure, using established antimicrobial optimization principles, is needed to create nuanced approaches to protect patients and antimicrobials and improve outcomes.
