Register to Participate in the Aged Care National Antimicrobial Prescribing Survey

April 28, 2017

The Department of Health is encouraging residential Aged Care Providers to register now to participate in this year's Aged Care National Antimicrobial Prescribing Survey (acNAPS).


The acNAPS aims to:

  • reduce harm to aged care residents by preventing infections through a greater focus on infection control

  • promote appropriate antimicrobial (e.g. antibiotic) use

  • collate de-identified data that allows each aged care home to benchmark their results against the Australian average

  • support aged care homes to meet accreditation requirements.

The survey can be undertaken by a nurse, infection control practitioner or pharmacist between Monday 19 June 2017 and Friday 1 September 2017.

Expert support from a clinical microbiologist, pharmacist and an infection control practitioner is available to all participating aged care homes and multi-purpose services during this time.


Contact details - phone (03) 9342 9415 or email

For further information or to participate visit the NAPS website.
