Tackling antimicrobial resistance in hospital settings
Free global webinar
November 21, 2023
Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is one of the greatest threats to public health, sustainable development, and security worldwide. Its prevalence has increased alarmingly over the past decades. The term “One Health” is now used widely to recognize the interconnectedness of the health of people, animals, and the environment. Multisectoral collaborations and concerted global efforts across multiple health domains are needed to tackle AMR.
Despite the complexity of AMR determinants, healthcare workers play a central role in preventing the emergence and spread of AMR, optimizing antimicrobial use, strengthening surveillance and infection prevention and control, and improving education and awareness regarding the appropriate use of antibiotics and the correct respect of infection prevention and control measures.
The webinar is free of charge and completely online. To give people from all over the world the opportunity to connect, the webinar will last 15 hours, starting at 6.55 a.m. UTC and ending at 10.00 p.m. UTC. The webinar will be held during World Antimicrobial Resistance Awareness Week. It aims to increase awareness of AMR and to encourage a comprehensive approach to infections in hospital settings. Over the course of the webinar meeting, speakers from all around the world will debate the main aspects of AMR and the prevention and management of infections in hospital settings.
All participants will receive a certificate of participation.
SIM will be present with our president Stefania Stefani.
