Summary

Antibiotic stewardship is seen as a key strategy to prevent antibiotic resistance and reduce healthcare associated infections. Led by HSRU, this Joint Programming Initiative for Antimicrobial Resistance funded international working group comprising world experts in antibiotic stewardship from UK, Canada, Norway, and Germany in partnership with experts in implementation science and behaviour change interventions aims to address the following: what behaviour change approaches can be recommended now to optimise hospital stewardship programmes; how can these programmes be designed to optimise implementation across countries; and what is the research agenda to optimise efficient implementation of hospital antibiotic stewardship programmes worldwide.

Here is a film interview with our director Prof Craig Ramsay talking about the activities undertaken by the working group: https://www.jpiamr.eu/results-from-the-fourth-jpiamr-network-call/
