Take Time Out for AMR Education
Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) week is upon us with the release of both the CDC and ECDC reports. A common theme in both reports is the importance of training in AMR rapid diagnostics. The AMR Dx Global project, funded by Europe’s public R&D resources, has been tasked with addressing the needs for teaching and training in AMR rapid diagnostics. They are today asking stakeholders to take time out to complete a 15-minute anonymous survey, to identify gaps in the area and its current state. The survey can be found here. The survey is open till 29th of February 2020.
AMR Dx Global is an international network with partners in 15 countries funded by the Joint Programming Initiative on Antimicrobial Resistance (JPIAMR) as part of the Virtual Reseach Institute and coordinated by University of Edinburgh. AMR Dx Global is currently mapping teaching and training resources globally. This includes online (such as MOOCs, webinars, etc.) and offline resources such as (classes, workshops, conferences, etc.).
