After our first Q&A with Dr. Catherine Duggan, Helping Pharmacists Fight Antimicrobial Resistance, we caught up with her to talk about what clinical pharmacists can do in their roles to contribute to and promote antimicrobial stewardship.
Because of the threat that AMR poses to our health, there is a need for global mobilization across all levels—from world leaders and industry, to physicians and scientists, as well as individual patients and their families.
October is American Pharmacists Month, and we’ve teamed up with the International Pharmaceutical Federation (FIP) to bring you an interview with Dr. Catherine Duggan, CEO, about how pharmacists and the pharmaceutical industry at large can contribute to the fight against antimicrobial resistance.
