This year we are working with Public Health England (PHE) who are looking to the pharmacy profession to raise public awareness of the problem of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and encourage the public to choose an Antibiotic Guardian (AG) pledge.
CPPE is working together with RPS during their antimicrobial resistance campaign. Visit the RPS website for more information at www.rpharms.com/making-a-difference/projects-and-campaigns/antimicrobial-resistance-stewardship
We are running the campaign in collaboration with the Royal Pharmaceutical Society, Pharmaceutical Services Negotiating Committee, Pharmacy Voice, Association of Pharmacy Technicians UK and British Pharmaceutical Students’ Association.
Use the arrows to scroll between the weekly challenges.
There are four weekly challenges to get your teeth into. If you complete all four challenges you will receive the European Antibiotic Awareness Day Campaign 2017 learning campaign badge in your Badge collection in My CPPE.
Don't forget to sign up using the button below and encourage your colleagues and friends to take part too.
The first challenge of the CPPE EAAD 2017 learning campaign is to watch our video on hand hygiene and reflect on your own practice. We encourage you to consider ways to raise public awareness about the importance of proper hand hygiene and the prevention of healthcare associated infections.
How can you improve your own hand hygiene in practice?
How do you raise awareness about proper hand hygiene to the public?
How do we change public perception on the importance of proper hand hygiene?
Record your thoughts in the text box below.
This challenge has two steps and you must complete both to complete the challenge. If you engaged with our EAAD campaign last year you will have already completed Step 1.
Step 1 – Choose your Antibiotic Guardian pledge at http://antibioticguardian.com
If you have already chosen your pledge, thank you.
I have chosen my Antibiotic Guardian pledge
Step 2 – Get five members of the public (family, friends, work colleagues, customers and patients) to choose their Antibiotic Guardian pledge. Make sure that when they get to the question ‘How did you hear about Antibiotic Guardian?’ they choose the pharmacy option.
Select yes if you have completed both steps of this challenge and enter the pledge you made in the text box below
To complete this challenge, take a couple of minutes to complete our e-challenge quiz which runs from 6 November – 13 November 2017. Discuss the answers with your colleagues.
