Impact of Continuous Pharmacist Intervention for Injectable Antimicrobials on the Treatment of Patients with Escherichia coli Bacteremia

  03 February 2022

A prospective audit with intervention and feedback (PAF) by pharmacists is important for the appropriate use of antimicrobials. Clinically, Escherichia coli (E. coli) bacteremia is a common condition, but only few researchers have examined the role of PAF in its appropriate use of antimicrobials.

We started PAF by pharmacists in 2017 for all injectable antibiotics. This study included cases of E. coli bacteremia that resulted in hospitalization over a 4-year period from 2016 to 2019. Patients were grouped by year (Period 0–3), and clinical outcomes were examined.

PAF by pharmacists promotes the appropriate use of antimicrobials in patients with E. coli bacteremia; it is important to continue the program for several years.
