Antimicrobial Stewardship in Wound Management

The British Society for Antimicrobial Chemotherapy via FutureLearn

Overview

Learn how to manage wound infection as a healthcare professional

It’s common to control wound infections with antibiotics. Understanding antimicrobial stewardship is key to preventing antimicrobial resistance and treating a range of infections caused by bacteria, parasites, viruses, and fungi.

On this course, you will explore antimicrobial resistance, learn how to treat it, and understand how this affects the safe management of patients with wounds. You will also learn how to recognise and diagnose wound infections and how to implement infection control measures in your own practice. Listen to a sneak preview here.
