PQS: AMS virtual event now on-demand
Community pharmacy contractors can now access an online recording of the antimicrobial stewardship (AMS) virtual event, which was jointly hosted by PSNC, the English Surveillance Programme for Antimicrobial Utilisation and Resistance (ESPAUR-UKHSA) and NHS England and NHS Improvement on 16th November 2021.
The aim of the virtual event was to support pharmacy teams meet the requirements of the Prevention Domain of the 2021/22 Pharmacy Quality Scheme (PQS). During the webinar there was a discussion about AMS and the use of the Antibiotic Checklist and other tools which can be used in community pharmacy. The resources developed by PSNC to support contractors to meet this Domain were also highlighted, along with further options for additional information and support.
