Abstract: INTRODUCTION: - Inappropriate use of antibiotics has become one of the biggest drivers for antimicrobial resistance [AMR] which has become an expanding public health warning. To improve the usage of antimicrobials, the World Health Organization grouped antibiotics into three categories which include Access, Watch, Reserve group antibiotics [AWaRe]. The compulsion of WHO is that Access group of antibiotics should be widely used and at low cost and to reduce the usage of watch and reserve groups of Antibiotics. Combination of factors such as changing prescribing practices, increasing AMR to other antibiotics classes and lack of availability of first line penicillin antibiotics included in Access groups could lead to the increasing usage of second and third generation cephalosporins of Watch group. OBJECTIVES: - The Purpose of this study is to evaluate the pattern of antibiotic consumption in patients admitted in different departments according to WHO AWaRe group classification and The Secondary objective is to find out the Medication Errors such as wrong dose, wrong dosage form, wrong route of administration and potential drug interactions caused due to prescribed antibiotics. METHODOLOGY: - A prospective observational study was conducted over a period of six months at Star multispecialty hospital, Hyderabad. The study was conducted to evaluate the use of antibiotics according to WHO AWaRe group classification. Total 150 prescriptions were analyzed for antibiotic consumption in inpatient departments of hospital. RESULTS: - In our study we evaluated the overall antibiotic consumption pattern and found that the share of Access, Watch and Reserve group were 24.66%, 68.02% and 5.96% respectively. In our study we observed that the antimicrobial consumption pattern changed drastically without culture test and after culture. It was found that without the culture test Access group were 27.94% Watch group were 69.23%, Reserve group were 2.43% and Unclassified were 0.40% while after culture test the share of Access group changed to 18.03%, Watch group changed to 65.57%, Reserve group changed to 13.11% and Unclassified to 3.28% respectively.
