“AMR and workplace learning: the case for a multi-professional approach in hospitals”.
The event was hosted by MEP Soledad Cabezón Ruiz (Spain, S&D) at the European Parliament, on 22 November 2017, from 15:00 to 17:00.
The Workshop addressed the importance of continuous professional development for the correct understanding and use of antibiotics by hospital staff and patients and the prevention of infections. Good practice examples to train staff in combatting Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) in the hospital sector will be presented to foster the discussion. The event also provided the opportunity to emphasize the importance of inter-professional cooperation in combatting AMR.
The date chosen for the Workshop allowed to connect the event to the activities planned for the 2017 European Antibiotic Awareness Day (EAAD) and the launch of the new EAAD Toolkit for Hospital Staff.
