While we are still in the middle of COVID19 pandemic, there is another serious medical challenge ongoing - the growing antimicrobial resistance.
Every year, WHO World Antimicrobial Awareness Week aims to increase awareness of global antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and to encourage best practices among the general public, health workers and policy makers to stop the further emergence and spread of drug-resistant infections.
At Nursebeam we made a videocast on this topic with Dr Hussen Tareq, our expert on this topic. Find answers to questions such as:
- What are antibiotics?
- What is antibiotic resistance?
- Why is antibiotic resistance a problem?
- Is it somehow also related to ongoing COVID19 pandemic?
- What can be done to solve the problem?
- How can I help?
