Infection affects half of the ICU patients while antimicrobials are prescribed to about 70% of them. It is recommended to start antimicrobial early and appropriately to improve outcome. However, overuse is leading to a widespread resistance.

To tackle the problem, stewardship programs are increasingly implemented but the heterogeneity managing infectious diseases in the ICU remains a main obstacle. Many specialties are sharing in the decision-making with poorly defined roles and responsibilities and wide variability even in the same country.

The aim of this survey is to understand the current infectious disease practice in the ICU in order to improve infectious disease management including training and role allocation.

The questionnaire will take about 15 minutes. The participants’ data will be kept anonymous; and the collected data will be analysed for presentation or publication.

Endorsed by the European Society of Intensive Care Medicine and its infectious diseases section.
