Overview

Discover a more accurate, more targeted way to tackle AMR

There’s a major lack of awareness about how diagnostics can help us to address the growing problem of antimicrobial resistance.

This course was developed to help medical professionals like you tackle AMR. You’ll explore the varieties of resistant bacteria, such as healthcare-associated infections, clinical syndromes and zoonotic infections, and learn what to do about them.

By the end of your study, you’ll possess a broader awareness of AMR and what causes it. You’ll have a detailed understanding of how diagnostics can be used in prevention, and the targeted use of antibiotics in treatment.

The course content is available in English, French, Portuguese, Spanish, Russian, and Chinese.

This course is intended for health professionals, such as clinicians, nurses, nurse-practitioners, pharmacists, lab managers, technicians, faculty and students. It would also appeal to anyone with an interest in the field of antimicrobial resistance.
