Antimicrobial stewardship is a fast-growing field. By managing our use of antibiotics we can slow down or reduce the occurrence of antimicrobial resistance.
Designed for healthcare professionals, this six-week course will inform you about - and empower you to provide - safe, high-quality antibiotic use.
You’ll interact with colleagues globally, to understand what antibiotic resistance means - and why the World Economic Forum has placed it alongside terrorism and climate change on its global risk register.
This course requires an active interest and prior experience in the prevention, diagnosis and management of infectious disease. While open to all healthcare workers and those with an interest in the subject, a large part of the content relates to hospital locations, although the concepts and information can be transferred to other situations.
