The handbook is not a substitute for clinical judgment and is intended as an educational guide. Content reflects current national guidelines, as well as practice at VUMC and the Nashville VA. The handbook is not intended to replace more comprehensive references or guides.

Images are used sparingly, but when used are either public domain or reproduced under fair use. 

Please note that a great deal of the ID section of this handbook has been drawn from guidance drafted by the ID Fellows, and published online at the Vanderbilt antimicrobial Stewardship Program (VASP). Website: https://ww2.mc.vanderbilt.edu/vasp/
