PQS: Share your views on the antimicrobial stewardship activities


Community pharmacy contractors and their teams are invited to complete a short voluntary survey about the TARGET antibiotic checklist and the other antimicrobial stewardship (AMS) activities that were part of the Prevention Domain of the 2021/22 Pharmacy Quality Scheme (PQS).

The survey, which has been created by the English surveillance programme for antimicrobial utilisation and resistance (ESPAUR) (part of the UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA)), is open to all community pharmacy staff. This includes those who did not meet the Prevention Domain requirements and those who did not participate in PQS, as ESPAUR would like to understand the barriers and challenges faced. Answers to the survey are anonymous and participants will be not identifiable.

The results of the survey will support the evaluation of the AMS activities which were part of the PQS and help ESPAUR understand how they can support community pharmacy teams in the future.

The survey is open until 30th June 2022.

If you have any questions about the survey, please contact Dr Diane Ashiru-Oredope (Lead Pharmacist for Antimicrobial Resistance, UKHSA) via ESPAUR@phe.gov.uk.
