Antimicrobial Stewardship Mobile Application
Fostering technology for AMS
A year on from the inception of the Commonwealth Partnerships for Antimicrobial Stewardship Programme (CwPAMS), the Commonwealth Pharmacists Association, a leading partner on the CwPAMS programme, launched a new app for healthcare professionals to inform appropriate antimicrobial use and support stewardship initiatives.
To inform the development of the CwPAMS Antimicrobial Prescribing App, a focused evidence review was undertaken. This highlighted a gap in clinical tools, based on established guidance to inform clinical decision making on antimicrobial use. Therefore, the CwPAMS Antimicrobial Prescribing App has been developed to provide easy access to information that is vital to use antimicrobials appropriately. It also currently includes national treatment guidelines for Ghana, Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia, as well as that from WHO AWaRE.
CwPAMS Antimicrobial Prescribing App
- National standard treatment guidelines
- WHO essential medicines lists on antimicrobials
- AMS training resources
- Infection Prevention and Control resources (IPC)
- Point Prevalence Survey (PPS) tools for antimicrobial use and
- COVID-19 resources
The CwPAMS Antimicrobial Prescribing App is particularly exciting as is the first of its kind to house these vital guidelines in one place. It has already received positive feedback from clinical staff and national-level leads.
The app is further designed to be a simple way to access infection management information to support appropriate antimicrobial use and antimicrobial stewardship.

We value ongoing feedback and believe that it will help us develop the most efficient AMS tools in the various Commonwealth regions. To help us achieve this, complete our survey here.
