Recorded Webinar: Antimicrobial Stewardship In Small Animal Practice - Why Does It Matter?

Royal Veterinary College

2 years ago

Duration: 2 hour(s)
Cost: £50

Key Areas
Guidance on rational antibiotic use in general practice

About this course
Antibiotics can be life-saving and are essential tools in the fight against disease. However, their widespread use in humans and animals in the past eight decades has resulted in increasing levels of bacterial resistance which is threatening their efficacy and forcing us to contemplate whether a post-antibiotic world is a real possibility.

In this lecture we will discuss not just the issue of drug resistance but also the impact that antibiotic use has on the immune system. We will review what drugs are effective against which bugs, when and where antibiotics are indicated and very importantly, when they are not, and how we can reduce the risk that the treatment we prescribe will encourage the development of resistance.

Why do this course?
The focus on using antibiotics wisely and well has never been more important for our own health and that of our pets and patients.
