|Abstract:||A poster presentation regarding perceptions of potential antibiotic prescribing by pharmacists. Introduction: Antibiotics have been a breakthrough in medicine, however their use is also associated with risks, one of which is the emergence of antimicrobial resistance.The misuse of antibiotics is affecting not just the individual patient but the community at large. Antibiotic use driven by a multidisciplinary team, including pharmacists, achieves a better clinical outcome by reducing harm to patients and decreasing potential for the emergence of antibiotic resistance. Aim: To evaluate pharmacist's perception of potential antibiotic prescribing by pharmacists.|
