ESCMID Postgraduate Education Course

Antimicrobial Stewardship: Implementing the Change

Co-organised by ESGAP, ESGVM and the British Small Animal Veterinary Association (BSAVA),

4 April 2018, Birmingham, United Kingdom

The objectives are to promote hospital infection control and antimicrobial stewardship in small animal practice and to educate a new generation of veterinary infectious disease specialists to be able to develop and implement infection control programmes (ICPs) and antimicrobial stewardship programmes (ASPs). Postgraduate education in this area is regarded as one of the key missions of ESGVM in order to meet the current public and animal health concerns related to the occurrence of multidrug-resistant bacteria and the increasing demand for responsible antibiotic use in veterinary medicine.
