AMR Webinar 1

On Thursday 13th July 2017, Dr. Diane Ashiru-Oredope (CPA Advisor and Pharmacist Lead, AMR Programme, Public Health England) joined our Executive Director Victoria Rutter to host our very successful first AMR webinar.

Representatives from Malaysia, Sri Lanka, Rwanda, Nepal, Trinidad & Tobago and Sierra Leone contributed to a very informative and interesting discussion around how pharmacists have been involved in tackling AMR in their own countries.

AMR Webinar 2

World Antibiotic Awareness Week (13-19 Nov 2017) provided an excellent opportunity to engage with healthcare professionals and the public to tackle AMR. Pharmacy teams (both individuals and organisations) have a key role in increasing awareness and promoting better use of antibiotics.

In our second AMR Webinar we discuss with adviser Dr Diane Ashiru-Oredope what has been happening around the Commonwealth to give some ideas of resources for individuals, member organisations and work places to use and adapt for their own campaigns.
