Antimicrobial Stewardship

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is one of the most urgent health threats we face globally. By 2050, if we continue using antibiotics as we are now, approximately 10 million people worldwide will die from resistant organisms each year. Pharmacists have a significant opportunity to engage in antimicrobial stewardship activities through education, health promotion and prevention, appropriate prescribing, and working closely with prescribers. Our practice resources to support you in your role as an antimicrobial steward include:
