Phar­ma­cists fight AMR

Pharmacy Daily - - News -

COM­MU­NITY phar­ma­cists have been given an es­sen­tial role in a na­tional cam­paign by Pub­lic Health Eng­land (PHE) to help fight an­timi­cro­bial re­sis­tance (AMR), ac­cord­ing to a Phar­ma­ceu cal Jour­nal re­port.

Each com­mu­nity phar­macy across the coun­try is re­ceiv­ing ad­vice leaflets around the self­man­age­ment of res­pi­ra­tory tract in­fec­tions to give to cus­tomers who visit the phar­macy with a cough or cold and flu-like symp­toms.

The leaflets are to be the start­ing point for coun­selling around the last-ditch role of an­tibi­otics.
