The first event of SwissASP (Antimicrobial Stewardship in Practice) will happen on 5 November 2021 in Berne. The event is free of charge (registration necessary) and eligible for continuing education credits.
The meeting is aimed at hospital pharmacists and clinical leaders involved in antimicrobial stewardship in hospitals in Switzerland. It will provide a broader perspective on antimicrobial stewardship and what it can achieve. The focus will be on the use of existing resources for practical stewardship implementation in the local hospital setting.
Keynote speakers will include Prof Philip Howard (President of the British Society of Antimicrobial Chemotherapy and Antimicrobial Pharmacist, Leeds Hospitals, UK) and Dr. Lukas Engelberger (President of the Swiss Conference of Health Directors GDK).
There will be a group session including case scenarios on practical stewardship implementation.
