Infection Prevention and Control Conference
“The NHS, governments and industry all have key role to play in combating antimicrobial resistance which poses a catastrophic global threat.” - Professor Dame Sally Davies, Chief Medical Officer for England
In May 2016, doctors in the United States reported an infection capable of resisting colistin, the anti-biotic of last resort. Experts predict that if current trends continue, 10 million people globally will die every year from anti-biotic resistant infections.
In the Review on Antimicrobial Resistance, Lord Jim O'Neill called for an anti-biotics revolution both in terms of developing new medicines and reducing the number of prescriptions. GPs in England have been praised for reducing the number of antibiotics given to patients by cutting prescriptions by 2.6 million in 2015/16. But more work needs to be done. Despite ever more rigorous infection prevention measures, NHS England recorded 1,477 MRSA bloodstream infections among hospital patients over the same period.
Join us for the Infection Prevention and Control Conference where leading experts will discuss the latest approaches to controlling and reducing the spread of dangerous infections. Learn how to mitigate against the threat of superbugs such as MRSA, what positive impact new technologies can have and how to effectively manage the use of anti-biotics.
