Abstract: A poster presentation regarding the perceptions on antibiotic prescribing by medical practitioners and pharmacists. Antibiotic prescribing is a multifaceted process which requires knowledge of pathogen characteristics as well as patient and drug characteristics. Medical practitioners’ perceptions and attitudes towards the use of antibiotics in treating an infection influence the decision to prescribe antibiotics and the selection of the appropriate antibiotic. Collaboration between medical practitioners and pharmacists, each with their respective expertise, can lead to major improvements in patient care.
