Massive Open Online Course on Antimicrobial Stewardship – REGISTER NOW!

We are delighted to announce the Massive Open Online Course on Antimicrobial Stewardship is now inviting registrations for its second run commencing 8 February 2016.

Over 15,000 individuals have registered an interest in the course, with over 5,600 active learners participating in the first run of the course.

Designed for healthcare professionals, this six-week course will inform you about – and empower you to provide – safe, high-quality antibiotic use.

You’ll interact with colleagues globally, to understand what antibiotic resistance means – and why the World Economic Forum has placed it alongside terrorism and climate change on its global risk register.

You’ll develop the skills and interventions that underpin antimicrobial stewardship, learning to promote responsible prescribing, to reduce variation in practice, and waste and harm from antibiotic overuse and misuse, thereby enhancing patient safety and outcomes.

Delivered by the British Society for Antimicrobial Chemotherapy in partnership with the University of Dundee, this is a truly global course, enabling you to meet and learn from professionals working across a range of healthcare communities and economies.

Why not invite colleagues and team members in your healthcare setting to join you and learn together? We welcome you to the course and look forward to learning, sharing and working with you.

Don’t worry if you have missed this first 6-week course, we will be running the entire course at regular intervals throughout 2016.  Please follow us at @asmooc and tweet using #AbxSteward
