In this 4 part video series, you'll hear the leading experts from the North-West of England who share their patient case studies and practical approach on implementing antimicrobial stewardship (AMS) into everyday practice. This series takes a closer look at human behaviours and diversity of prescribing. At the end of the series you will be able to download a certificate of completion.
In this webinar, Dr Chris Kosmidis reflects on the origins and increasing prominence of antimicrobial stewardship in the literature and guidance globally, reflecting on its relevance to the North-West of England with its high volume of carbapenem resistant Gram-negative bacteria. Dr Chris shares free resources that are available, including the World Health Organization (WHO) Aware classification of antibiotics.
In this webinar, Dr Chris Eades explores haemato-oncology as a high impact area for anti-infectives due to the complexity of high-risk patients. The presentation includes the historical context of how haemato-oncology and infection services have worked together in the UK, how psychological and behavioral sciences impact prescribing behaviours.
Dr Chris briefly explains phenomenological research methods and how they can be used to understand how anti-infectives are used. Sharing the results of his analysis, the objective is to improve the integration of specialist infection services within haemato-oncology.
In this webinar, Antimicrobial Stewardship Pharmacist Jade Clarke explains the importance of patient centred stewardship and the practical approaches Manchester University Hospital Foundation Trust have taken to optimise their AMS strategy. Jade shares their Trust's stewardship structure and why she thinks collaboration with stakeholders across the structure and Trust is important for patient outcomes and AMS. The impact of COVID-19 on AMS activities and prescribing is also discussed.
