Antimicrobial stewardship

Tuesday, 19 November, 2019


Dear colleagues,

With the increasing prevalence of antimicrobial resistance managing patient expectations around antibiotic prescribing is more important than ever for all healthcare professionals.

Within the Community Pharmacy Quality Scheme it is required that:

‘80% of all pharmacy professionals to complete CPPE sepsis online training and assessment. Apply learning to respond in a safe and appropriate way when it is suspected that someone has sepsis. Disseminate alert symptoms to staff, to ensure referral to pharmacist’.

Within the Community Pharmacy setting you will be increasingly talking to patients about sepsis and responding to their questions and concerns regarding antibiotics. Patients can present at multiple healthcare providers wanting clear professional advice.  The CPPE Antimicrobial stewardship event will support you to help and manage patient expectations, understand when antibiotics are clinically indicated and ensure that an appropriate choice is made in line with local policies.

This is relevant to all pharmacy professionals, whether or not you are a prescriber, and joining colleagues at this event will help you to understand the rationale for deciding if antibiotics are needed and how to explain this to patients clearly
