The extent of antimicrobial stewardship practices among hospital pharmacists in Namibia: A cross-sectional survey
MetadataShow full item record
Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) has become a major public health issue that threatens prevention and treatment of infections as microbes are no longer susceptible to antimicrobials. The concept of antimicrobial stewardship (AMS) was developed to help in the fight against AMR and is recognized as a strategy to reduce AMR. Pharmacists can play a role in developing AMS strategies both in community and hospital pharmacies. The main aim of this study was to determine the extent to which AMS is currently being practiced by pharmacists in Namibian hospitals.
