Hospital-based interventions to contain antibiotic resistance in low-resource settings
24th April 2023 @ 8:00 am – 12th May 2023 @ 5:00 pm
The short course “Hospital-based Interventions to Contain Antibiotic Resistance in Low-resource Settings (AIM)” is a 3-week course which offers an interdisciplinary and interactive trainingon relevant aspects of antibiotic resistance and its containment at the hospital level. The course focuses on hospitals because they concentrate the most ill and vulnerable patients; in addition, they are hotbeds of healthcare-acquired infections, act as referral sites for difficult-to-treat infections and host trainees and postgraduate educational programs. The short-course consists of a common track and 3 specific tracks on Antibiotic Stewardship (ABS), Infection Prevention & Control (IPC) and Microbiological Surveillance (MS) in the hospital setting. These are closely linked key components in the successful containment of antibiotic resistance.
Healthcare professionals from LRS already involved in ABR-containment are invited to apply. Candidates are encouraged to state their preference for one of the three course tracks (ABS, IPC or MS). Deadline for application to the course is 15 November 2022.
