The Pharmacist's Role


AOM is one of the most common diagnoses in which antibiotics are prescribed in children. Within the last 10 years, there has been a dramatic decline in the development and approval of new antibiotics. Pharmacists should engage with other healthcare professionals to promote the judicious and appropriate use of antibiotics to optimize patients' outcomes while balancing the consequences of overtreatment, particularly antimicrobial resistance.

Pharmacists play a vital role in patient education by counseling caregivers on the appropriate use of antibiotics in the treatment of AOM. In addition, pharmacists are well positioned to provide recommendations regarding nonprescription analgesics. Lastly, pharmacists can assist in preventing AOM by serving as immunization advocates, facilitators, and administrators, where allowed by law.
