Abstract [en]

Introduction/Background: Antibiotic resistance (AR) has become a danger threats to all countries and regions in the world. Decreased effectiveness of antibiotics in treating some infections due to antibiotic resistance is leading to more suffering for patients, increased treatment costs, increased days of hospitalization as well as increasing morbidity and mortality. In order to tackle AR, a much more responsible use of antibiotics is needed including avoidance of overuse, overprescribing and any other type of inappropriate use of antibiotics. Egypt is one of the countries with high rate of antibiotic misuse- In the study that this study protocol is outlining, the reasons for misuse will be explored from the community pharmacists’ perspectives in order to suggest possible solutions.

Objective: The general objective is to study factors contributing to antibiotic misuse in Egypt from the perspective of community pharmacists.

Method: A cross sectional study will be conducted using structured questionnaire. Answers will be collected from community pharmacists in Fayoum governorate in Egypt whereafter data analysis will be done.

Study work plan: It is intended that the study period altogether will be six months.
