Irrational use of antimicrobials is a key driver in propagating antimicrobial resistance. It is estimated that 50% of patients in the inpatient setting receive an antimicrobial therapy. However, 20% to 50% of these medications have been found to be “inappropriate” or “unnecessary”. There is an urgent need to ameliorate antibiotic use in the hospitals. The creation and continuous evaluation of a hospital’s formulary may promote rational, appropriate, and safe use antimicrobials while fostering a cost-effective therapy.
Join us on Wednesday, July 29th at 1700hrs (GMT+3) as we discuss more on the “Rational use of Antimicrobials and Formulary Management”.
