How Can Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) Surveillance Inform Public Health

Topics: Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR), Infectious Diseases Location: General, Canada

Following global calls to action on antimicrobial resistance (AMR) by the World Health Organization and the United Nations, Canada continues to support international efforts. Within Canada, AMR is a complicated and multi-sectoral issue. It requires cohesive efforts in public health, health care and other sectors. In this webinar, Dr. James Brooks will provide an overview to public health personnel on AMR surveillance in Canada and opportunities to use surveillance data to support public health planning, decision-making and response.
 
The webinar will begin with a brief review of the historical and current status of public health education on AMR and AMR surveillance. Resistant infections of public health concern will be described. In addition, this webinar will help inform participants of the shared and crucial responsibility of public health stakeholders to reduce AMR.
