Dr Ryan Hamilton winning recipient of the 2018 Bowmed Ibisqus Antimicrobial Management Award

During the 2018 Annual Joint Conference of the UKCPA Clinical Pharmacy Association and Pharmacy Management, Dr Ryan Hamilton received the Bowmed Ibisqus Antimicrobial Management Award.  The Award is intended to recognise innovation in antimicrobial management.

Dr Hamilton’s paper provided an evaluation of antimicrobial stewardship ward rounds led by junior members of the healthcare team.  The review demonstrated that AMS ward rounds led by junior members of staff can optimise antimicrobial therapy earlier in the admission process with potential reduction in length of stay and reduced re-admission rates.  Further work will be undertaken on this topic however an extract of Dr Hamilton’s work so far can be seen below.
