In a recent subject I did under my Masters of Veterinary Public Health, there was some discussion on antimicrobial stewardship (AMS) amongst veterinarians. Yet what does that mean and how can it be applied within a private practitioner setting. On the 11-12 of September, 2016, the European Society of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious diseases will be hosting an antimicrobial stewardship conference in Sweden. Further details are in the link below. I can feel a blog idea come along, so I shall leave it there for now, except to say – while we veterinarians may get prickly whenever someone from the medical side points the finger at how we “abuse” antimicrobials, we should be more aware of our role and capacity to limit the increase in resistance.
