You will support development of specific prescribing policies, protocols & educational interventions or training packages directed at prescribers, nurses, allied health care professionals & patients with the intention of improving the quality of antimicrobial prescribing and minimize potential patient harm from Healthcare Associated Infections (HAI) & the emergence of multi-drug resistant bacteria.
