London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine via FutureLearn

Overview

What lessons can the antimicrobial (AMR) response take from COVID-19 events?

As the world continues to deal with COVID-19, its impact on other public health issues must also be considered. This three-week course provides valuable insight into how COVID-19 affected different countries’ One Health efforts in general, and their antimicrobial resistance responses in particular.

Unpack COVID-19’s impact on AMR diagnostics

The course starts with a close examination of the impact that the COVID-19 pandemic has had on One Health projects and delivery in different countries, and on AMR stewardship and responses.

With a clear understanding of the effects, you’ll be able to explore the lessons and benefits that the responses to the COVID-19 pandemic (and the pandemic itself) hold for AMR research and action plans.

The importance of quality and informatics for AMR diagnostics, AMR data sharing, and overall collaboration within the public health sector will all be emphasised on the course.

You’ll also learn more about the diagnostic technology innovations and diagnostic capacity increases that developed in response to COVID-19, and how they can be applied to the AMR response.

Ultimately, you’ll gain new appreciation for the need for continuous learning, professional development, and information sharing in the fight against AMR by the end of the course.
