Today more than past we need to improve clinical outcomes in the management of infectious disease related to patient in critical conditions (septic shock, sepsis, MOF, invasive fungal infections, HIV, peritonitis, meningitis, endocarditis, osteomyelitis, pneumonia, severe UTI, proteases infections and other). The same way we can see the high efficacy of some new drugs in eradicate severe infectious (as CEPAT), saving cost for transplant. This condition needs today an active role and permanent presence of clinical pharmacist in medical team because these therapies highly involved in patient’s health. The objective of this work is to analyze the role of clinical pharmacist in infectious disease medical team observing some in our opinion relevant publication and the positive effect on clinical outcomes. Infectious disease needs today new management systems to contain the increase of antimicrobial resistance in an era of few new and innovative drug discovered by pharmaceutical industries. Clinical pharmacist can give to the physicians a great help in this field to improve clinical outcomes, reducing toxicity, containing costs but also to preserve the antimicrobial potential of the antimicrobials (as safe-life drugs). These are only some of the many reason to apply the clinical pharmacist competence in patient medical team.
