Today is European Antibiotic Awareness Day - EAAD
Antimicrobial misuse is as vast a problem in wound care as in any other medical discipline! Therefore, EWMA is partnering with BSAC (British Society for Antimicrobial Chemotherapy) to develop and introduce antimicrobial stewardship in wound management.
Through 2016/2017 EWMA will be launching a full antimicrobial stewardship programme with includes guidance documents, symposia and educational events.
EWMA urges you to learn more about Antimicrobial Stewardship by taking this free online course Antimicrobial Stewardship: Managing Antibiotic Resistance
The course will help you understand how antimicrobial stewardship can reduce antibiotic resistance, and empower you to apply it in your everyday practice. It is delivered by the University of Dundee in partnership with BSAC.
