You are invited to take part in a live webinar on AMR for all pharmacy staff in the East of England which will help your pharmacy to make the most of the upcoming AMR campaign, which Contractors are required to participate in from 1st September to 30th September 2019.

 

Pharmacy staff in other regions are also welcome to take part.

What will you learn?

Through this short webinar, we will help you and your colleagues to:

  • Understand what antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is and why it is important,
  • Understand what you can do to help stop the spread of AMR,
  • Recognise when a client may have a self-limiting infection,
  • Improve your confidence in giving advice to clients about self-care and when not to take antibiotics, and
  • Prepare your pharmacy to make the most of the “Keep Antibiotics Working” AMR campaign.

 

 

The webinar will be delivered by Dr Diane Ashiru-Oredope (Lead Pharmacist in the Healthcare-Associated Infections and AMR Division of PHE) and will feature a brief question and answer period following the presentation.

The presentation will be recorded and will be available online for those who are unable to dial-in to the live version.

A certificate of completion will be available for all who complete a short set of questions before and after the webinar.

We recommend you register and complete the questions even if you cannot attend live as we can send the recording to all who register.
