Webinar: Antimicrobial Resistance and Healthcare Associated Infections Research
Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is recognised as a threat to society, health systems and individuals across the world. Without working antimicrobials modern medicine will, in the words of a previous Chief Medical Officer, “go back to the dark ages”. However, while the mechanisms leading to AMR and drug resistant infections are biological, conditions which allow them to flourish are also social, cultural, political and economic. Research tackling AMR therefore requires a highly multidisciplinary approach and global collaboration.
This exciting event will bring together researchers from the NIHR Health Protection Research Unit in Healthcare Associated Infection (HCAI) and Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) with members of the public to share our planned research and engage in a dialogue on our proposed research into Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) and Healthcare Associated Infections (HCAI).
Members of the public will be invited to participate in the webinar, hear a number of brief presentations on our research, share views and discuss thoughts on the proposals. There will also be the opportunity to post questions during the event to give the presenters the opportunity to discuss the suggestions live, during the Webinar.
This free webinar is open to members of the public over 16 years old who have an interest in public health research.
