Role of the hospital pharmacist in antimicrobial stewardship and sepsis management
Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a major public health threat, which currently kills around 700,000 people each year worldwide. The fight against AMR has been a priority for FIP for many years as it causes a profound impact on global, regional and national health care and economies. The goal of this webinar is to supplement the other FIP webinars being held in November 2021 discussing AMR regionally around the globe. This webinar specifically targets pharmacists involved in hospital and health-system practice settings and will discuss innovative ways to involve pharmacists in infectious disease through AMR and sepsis management.
1. Introduce the antimicrobial stewardship program in hospital pharmacy using clinical decision support system
2. Discuss the role and importance of the pharmacist in the management of sepsis
3. Evaluate the use of software and information technology to support antimicrobial stewardship in the critically ill
