Antibiotic Guardian Workshops, Awards & AMR Scotland
Antibiotic resistance is one of the biggest threats facing us today!
Why it is relevant to you:Without effective antibiotics many routine treatments will become increasingly dangerous. Setting broken bones, basic operations, even chemotherapy all rely on access to antibiotics that work.
What we want you to do:
To slow resistance we need to cut the use of unnecessary antibiotics. November 18th is European Antibiotic Awareness Day. As part of that we're asking everyone in the UK, the public and the medical community to become Antibiotic Guardians.
Call to action:Choose one simple pledge about how you'll make better use of antibiotics and help save this vital medicine from becoming obsolete. To ensure that the information and knowledge on Antibiotic Stewardship is disseminated to those practising healthcare across the nation, a series of awareness and educational events have been developed. These educational workshop events, to be held in Leeds, Bristol and London, will provide guidance, resources and information for practitioners on topics associated with antibiotic awareness. The events will provide an opportunity to understand how you and your organisation can support combat the global challenge faced by antibiotic resistance whilst gaining advice, support and resources to inform patients and staff.
The Antibiotic Guardian Workshops & Awards are organised by for 4 All of Us on behalf of Public Health England
