Antimicrobial Stewardship for community pharmacy staff

Antimicrobial Stewardship for community pharmacy staff

March 12, 2020

Health Education England (HEE) has worked in partnership with Public Health England, British Society of Antimicrobial Chemotherapy, Royal Pharmaceutical Society, University of Leeds and University of Nottingham to develop an e-learning session for community pharmacy staff on the impact of antimicrobial resistance.

This e-learning session will help community pharmacy staff to understand the connection between antibiotic use and antibiotic resistance and identify their role in optimising antibiotic use in the general population who visit their pharmacy.

The resource also includes information on using the Antibiotic Checklist to personalise patient advice when dispensing antibiotics and awareness of the global impact of antibiotic resistance.

The e-learning is available to access for free on the HEE e-Learning for Healthcare Hub and will soon also be available on the Electronic Staff Record (ESR).

For more information about the free e-learning session, including details on how to access, please visit: https://www.e-lfh.org.uk/programmes/antimicrobial-resistance-and-infections/.
