Stimulating new antimicrobial development and improving antimicrobial stewardship
Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) is a global public health issue which has an immense impact on society and requires action at a local, national and global level. The UK is seen as an international leader in the field of antibiotic conservation and AMR stewardship.
In partnership the Royal Pharmaceutical Society, the Royal College of General Practitioners, the Royal College of Nursing and the Royal College of Physicians in collaboration with the Faculty of Public Health, Public Health England and the Department of Health have joined together to begin to address this global issue.
We held an event on 6 November 2014 that brought these organisations together to discuss how we combat AMR. Hear what our some of our speakers and chairs think health professionals and the public can do to help prevent AMR below.
