Online course on Antimicrobial Stewardship: Managing Antibiotic Resistance
New BSAC/University of Dundee course
Free online course - 3 hours per week for 6 weeks
Open access – REGISTER NOW – free to all participants
The World Health Organisation (WHO), when reporting on the escalating threat of antimicrobial resistance (AMR), warned that without urgent action, we’re heading for an era in which common infections, which have been treatable with antibiotics for decades, can kill once more. In some parts of the world, this sadly is already a reality.
Antimicrobial stewardship is a fast-growing field that aims to address this issue by managing our use of antibiotics to slow down or reduce the occurrence of antimicrobial resistance.
This free online course will help you understand what antimicrobial stewardship is and how you can apply it everyday. Although the focus is for prescribing in the hospital setting, the skill set can be applied and adapted to other healthcare settings. The intention of the course is to stimulate and encourage further inquiry and learning in this important area.
