Infection and antimicrobial stewardship module

What is the aim of the Pharmacy 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 18months to complete. However, it may take less time for pharmacists who have previously completed VT2 Generalist Training.
