Reflections on NCCID’s Antimicrobial Resistance Work in the Past Year

Publication Summary

In February 2010, the National Collaborating Centre for Infectious Diseases (NCCID) hosted a knowledge exchange consultation on community-acquired antimicrobial resistance (caAMR). The consultation resulted in a draft action plan, with priorities identified in four key areas: leadership and governance, education and awareness, surveillance, and research. This Purple Paper summarizes the progress NCCID has made and the challenges we’ve faced in addressing the priority areas over the past year.
