Research Week: The World Is Running Out of Antibiotics
Tuesday, Nov. 22, 12-1 p.m.
Did you know that antimicrobial resistance (AMR) causes drugs that we rely on, such as antibiotics, to become ineffective and infections to become increasingly difficult or impossible to treat? In fact, the World Health Organization has declared that AMR is one of the top 10 global public health threats facing humanity. November 18-24 is World Antimicrobial Awareness Week and Quality of Care NL will be sharing some of our research about how antibiotics are used here in Newfoundland and Labrador and what we – the public and health care providers – can do to help reduce inappropriate use of antibiotics leading to AMR. We’ll be joined by Dr. Peter Daley, infectious disease physician and Co-Chair of the Provincial Antimicrobial Stewardship Committee.
