The development of Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) has diminished the effectiveness of many antimicrobials used to prevent and/or treat wound infection. In order to help address AMR, there have been the development of Antimicrobial Stewardship (AMS) programmes. These have been designed to educate healthcare workers and control the prescribing of antibiotics and targeting of other antimicrobials and hence reduce the likelihood of AMR.
This online Antimicrobial Stewardship masterclass discussed:
- The role of HCPs in implementing Antimicrobial Stewardship in wound care
- The impact of Antimicrobial Stewardship strategies based on analysis of a real-world online survey and experiences of expert practitioners
- Where practitioners can enhance effectiveness of Antimicrobial Stewardship in wound care
