Dear colleagues,

I would like to announce that the new e-learning course on Antimicrobial Stewardship is now open for enrolment.

The objectives of this course are:

  • understand the challenges related to antibiotic prescription, burden of anti-microbial resistance (AMR) and the principles of antibiotic stewardship;
  • identify guidelines for treatment of specific conditions and formularies both at the national and local level;
  • understand the implementation of antibiotic policies;
  • understand measurement of drug usage and the prescribing indicators in relation to structure, process and outcomes;
  • identify drug usage over time and interpret prescribing surveillance data;
  • understand the elements and performance measurement for an antimicrobial stewardship program (AMS);
  • identify interventions to improve antibiotic prescribing practices for hospitalised patients and measure intervention effect, barriers, and possible solutions.

Aside from the great content covered, this new e-learning includes a whiteboard animation, which aims to improve your learning experience.  

Enjoy your learning and recommend this course to others.


Best wishes, 

Michael (for the EVA Team)
