Antibiotic Awareness Week in Canada : NOVember 12-18, 2018

NCCID has participated in Antibiotic Awareness Week in Canada since 2010. Our Centre works to raise awareness about antimicrobial resistance (AMR), antimicrobial use (AMU) and antimicrobial-resistant organisms (ARO). Together with our partners, we promote the prudent use of antibiotics to fight the threat of antibiotic-resistant bacteria.

A Provincial Antimicrobial Stewardship Program: Successes and Challenges in Alberta focuses on the relationship between doctors and patients. We offer practical tools and information to practitioners, including our prescription pads, as well as webinars presenting the latest information on antimicrobial resistance and antimicrobial stewardship program development.

We link to materials produced by other organizations, including the Public Health Agency of Canada, to promote antibiotics awareness and responsible use. Through ongoing knowledge translation initiatives, NCCID aims to facilitate appropriate stewardship and surveillance.
