World Antibiotic Awareness Week

World Antibiotic Awareness Week

World Antibiotic Awareness Week is on this 13-19 November with the theme “Handle antibiotics with care”.

This year, the aim is to create behaviour change that drives down inappropriate antibiotic prescribing by health professionals and inappropriate requests for antibiotics from consumers.

NPS MedicineWise have developed a suite of resources that organisations can use to raise awareness of antibiotic resistance.  Everything can be accessed from the campaign landing page.

They are also are encouraging health professionals and organisations to host their own World Antibiotic Awareness Week event during the week.

Please email Alia Rayan if you have any questions or would like to get involved in World Antibiotic Awareness Week.
