The pharmacy team plays an essential role in the stewardship of antibacterials. To support your team and raise awareness of the European Antibiotic Awareness Day (EAAD) on the 18 November, CPPE are running their annual ‘Use Antibacterials Wisely’ national campaign.

CPPE are running two e-workshops to support pharmacy team members engage in this campaign and  apply their learning in their workplace. Places are strictly limited and should be prioritised to those who will champion this campaign in the workplace.

E-workshop description:

This online antibacterials workshop focuses on the role of the pharmacy team in the stewardship of antibacterials.

Although loosely based on the Antibacterials Focal Point workshop, there will be elements of other learning materials and online resources – making this an ideal ‘refresher’ for those who have already attended the FP workshop….and a holistic learning experience for those who haven’t.

We will discuss everything from the five different antimicrobial agents to the practical issues around appropriate antibacterial use. We will also look at  everything from antimicrobial guidelines to where you can access the latest online resources and information – there is something for everyone!
