Infection and antimicrobial stewardship module

What is the aim of the Advanced Expert Professional Practice Antimicrobial Stewardship Module?

The aim of this specialist training is to equip practitioners working within a specific area of practice with specialist skills. The objectives are designed to demonstrate the competency of pharmacists wishing to work within antimicrobial stewardship.

The module will be addressed through directed reading, experience in practice and work-shadowing where appropriate.

The module will take approximately 18 months to complete. However, it may take less time for pharmacists who have previously completed Vocational Foundation Training.

Advanced EPP Specialist pharmacists are expected to develop a portfolio which demonstrates competence of the various tasks detailed within the specialist competency framework.
