Antibiotics: Next steps in learning ...

Last updated: Tuesday, June 20, 2017

CPPE have a range of resources to support you including CPPE Antibacterial resistance – a global threat to public health: the role of the pharmacy team. The aim of this learning programme is to update your knowledge about the issues of antimicrobial resistance and healthcare-associated infections (HCAIs) so that you can contribute to reducing their impact.

Health Education England have produced a comprehensive guide to training resources on antimicrobial resistance. It includes antimicrobial prescribing and stewardship, infection prevention and control, and treating specific infections. Many of the packages sit on the e-Learning for Healthcare platform which may be available to you through OpenAthens. Other material requires a subscription such as that produced by the Royal Pharmaceutical Society. A good starting point for pre-registration pharmacists is a 3 part series called Prudent Use of Antibiotics.
