A pharmacist-led prospective antibiotic stewardship intervention improves compliance to community-acquired pneumonia guidelines in 39 public and private hospitals across South Africa

  16 October 2020

Pharmacists in low-middle-income countries (LMIC) lack in number and antibiotic stewardship (AS) training. We assessed the ability of non-specialised pharmacists to implement stewardship interventions and improve adherence to the South African (SA) community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) guideline in public and private hospitals.

Non-specialised pharmacists in public and private hospitals implemented stewardship interventions and improved compliance to SA CAP guidelines. The methodology of upskilling and a shared learning stewardship model may benefit LMIC countries.
