Marking the opening of Antibiotic Awareness Week (November 13-19), Southern Health-Sante Sud is pleased to offer a special educational event focused on antimicrobial stewardship (AMS) held in conjunction with the Community-Based Continuing Professional Development program at Boundary Trails Health Centre.
Join leading experts for a series of presentations on the current state of AMS in Canada and internationally, along with examples of local stewardship efforts in the region and province. Speakers will share tools for use in clinical settings, and clarify recommendations for practice endorsed by Canadian healthcare organizations. Participants will be encouraged to provide recommendations on ways to shift the culture of antibiotic use in healthcare, and how to build a more unified approach to stewardship in the region.
This is a timely event, to build knowledge of leading practices in antimicrobial stewardship, as Canadian and global leaders work to respond more effectively to AMR.
