Canadian Students for Antimicrobial Stewardship Society

BSAC is pleased to promote the Canadian initiative Students for Antimicrobial Stewardship Society (SASS).

SASS is a student-led national organization dedicated to raising awareness of antimicrobial stewardship and resistance across Canada. Founded by medical students, we support a multidisciplinary approach to stewardship through collaboration with students from health professional programs including Dentistry, Medicine, Nursing, Pharmacy, and Veterinary Medicine. We represent students regarding antimicrobial stewardship at the national and international level, interfacing with industry, medical organizations, educational institutions, and governments.

SASS exists to  educate, support, connect, and represent its membership as they foster and champion a culture of stewardship and conscientious, evidence-informed use of antimicrobials. We empower current and future generations of healthcare providers to administer the right treatment to the right patients at the right time, and to be judicious when prescribing.

The vision is to grow a culture of antimicrobial stewardship amongst future healthcare providers.
BSAC will be actively considering how to work collaboratively with SASS to mirror its ethos and successes in student engagement across the UK.
