FIP Development Goal 17: Antimicrobial stewardship

 

 FIP Development Goal 17 Workforce Element


FIP Development Goal 17 [w]

 

                                                                                                                                    

Globally, we will have:

Strategies and systems in place to develop a pharmaceutical workforce prepared to deliver quality services for antimicrobial stewardship.

Mechanisms

  • Enable the workforce to acquire knowledge and skills necessary in initial education (FIP Development Goal 1 [w]), early career training (FIP Development Goal 2 [w]) and continuing professional development (FIP Development Goal 9 [w]).

  • Identify competencies needed for antimicrobial stewardship services delivery and incorporate them in competency frameworks and advanced/specialist development (FIP Development Goals 4 & 5 [w]).


 

FIP Development Goal 17 Practice Element


FIP Development Goal 17 [p]

 

                                                                                                                                                             

Globally, we will have:

Infrastructures and frameworks in place to deliver services for antimicrobial stewardship.

Mechanisms

  • Develop and implement systems and structures to deliver antimicrobial stewardship services as a coordinated programme that promotes the appropriate use of antimicrobials, improves patient outcomes and decreases the spread of infections caused by multidrug-resistant organisms.

  • Utilise and assess data and metrics to improve and optimise antimicrobial stewardship services. 

  • Advocate for and support the responsible use of antimicrobials.


 

FIP Development Goal 17 Science Element 


FIP Development Goal 17 [s]

 

                                                                                             

Globally, we will have:

Promote research and development of new antimicrobials, new antimicrobial combinations and new techniques and evaluate the impact of antibiotic stewardship programmes.


Mechanisms

  • Promote strategies mitigating antimicrobial resistance in community- and hospital-acquired infections and in the use of antibiotics in livestock production and agriculture.

  • Report research data underlining the relevance and impact of antibiotic stewardship programmes.

  • Raise awareness of powerful pharmaceutical sciences technologies such as bioinformatics and quantitative systems pharmacology to identify novel combinatorial therapies.
