Work in Progress on Antibiotics and Antimicrobial Resistance

CPCSSN is currently studying antibiotic use and misuse in the context of the growing global antimicrobial resistance (AMR) issue. One of our ongoing projects aims to combine a prescribing app and feedback platform developed by the Joint Programming Initiative on Antimicrobial Resistance (JPIAMR) to create a new antimicrobial stewardship tool. This tool will be tested in three parallel pragmatic clinical randomized trials in primary care, hospitals, and veterinary care.

Also watch for a comprehensive report on AMR scheduled for release this fall.
