    • Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a major global concern because drug-resistant infections can kill, spread to others, and impose huge costs on individuals and society. In order to tackle this problem we first need to understand it; we can do this by collecting and sharing high-quality data that is relevant to AMR.

      Data relating to AMR means that trends in resistance and antimicrobial use can be monitored and used to make better decisions to help tackle the AMR crisis. As an AMR surveillance professional, you have a key role to play in this surveillance process, whether it is in collecting, analysing or interpreting data, or in using the data to develop new policies and practices.

      This Fleming Fund course, Tackling antimicrobial resistance, comprises a series of online modules. The aim of this course is to help you to identify, develop and apply skills and knowledge relevant to your role in order to change and improve your working practice and the practice of people that you work with.

      AMR surveillance and you is the first module in your study pathway. It is an opportunity for you identify the skills and areas of knowledge that you need to develop for your role and to reflect on how your learning in the other modules can change your working practice in relation to AMR.
