About

Evaluating the important role of the community pharmacists in pandemics like covid-19 and to find whether there was a misuse of antibiotics during the pandemic or not and to define the reasons behind this misuse if any present.

Full description

Community pharmacy in Egypt is considered as the frontline health care system that is easily and freely accessible by the patients, in this pandemic and due to the current circumstances from closing most general hospitals in front of the public, and with the government applying curfew long hours, community pharmacists were the only healthcare providers available for most patients. Their role will not be restricted to delivering medication but expands to monitoring patient conditions especially those with chronic diseases and patient counseling and education clarifying any misunderstanding concerning covid1-19 medication. The present study includes a questionnaire (with detailed questions including how/when/which/for how long antibiotics are prescribed) that is addressed for community pharmacists who dealt with covid-19 patients during the pandemic.
