Antimicrobial stewardship – how you can make a difference

19th December 2019, 8pm

Overview

Antimicrobial resistance affects us all; without effective drugs there are no cures. This webinar will help anyone wanting to improve their practice and become an advocate for antimicrobial stewardship.

Antimicrobial resistance is a very real threat to modern medical and veterinary healthcare. It is a one-health problem - humans and animals are exposed to similar drugs, bacterial and resistance genes. This lecture will explore the nature of this threat and how we must preserve the efficacy of these drugs for the future. This will include practical advice on responsible antimicrobial use. We will also explore what drives us to use too many antibiotics and how we can cut back without compromising animal welfare.

Key learning outcomes • Understanding the spread of antimicrobial resistance • Key concepts in responsible antimicrobial use • Key messages for your colleagues and clients
