Antimicrobial stewardship for the non-specialist
Presented by Jacqueline Sneddon, Project Lead for Scottish Antimicrobial Prescribing Group, Glasgow.
About this webinar
Tackling antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and Healthcare Associated Infection (HAI) are currently a priority within healthcare and antimicrobial stewardship is an essential element of national and local programmes to address AMR.
The aim of this webinar is to provide an overview of antimicrobial stewardship (AS), its importance in tackling Healthcare Associated Infection (HAI) and how pharmacists can contribute.
This webinar will increase awareness of why antimicrobial resistance and HAI are currently a priority within healthcare and why effective antimicrobial stewardship programmes are required. It will also describe the role of an antimicrobial pharmacist and show how all pharmacists can contribute to antimicrobial stewardship within their own area of practice.
