Abstract

SCHELLACK, N; PRETORIUS, R  and  MESSINA, A P. 'Esprit de corps': Towards collaborative integration of pharmacists and nurses into antimicrobial stewardship programmes in South Africa. SAMJ, S. Afr. med. j. [online]. 2016, vol.106, n.10, pp.973-974. ISSN 2078-5135.  http://dx.doi.org/10.7196/samj.2016.v106i10.11468.

With the global threat of antimicrobial resistance now more emergent than ever, there should be wider collaboration between members of the multidisciplinary healthcare team. This article proposes possible ways of engagement between the pharmacist, nurse and doctor. The pharmacist and nurse are placed in an ideal position through united efforts (camaraderie) to redirect healthcare towards improved patient outcomes while also reducing antimicrobial resistance.
