AMR Learning Module

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is one of the biggest threats to global health today. Inappropriate use of antibiotics contributes significantly to this problem. Clinical diagnostics can guide antibiotic prescribing decisions, however its application in practice remains lowThere is need for more emphasis on the role of clinical diagnostics in AMR. Responding to this, we organised a clinical case challenge contest, proposing a new form of educational antimicrobial stewardship using crowdsourcing methods. The call for cases encouraged medical students, trainees, physicians and others to collect and submit patient clinical cases that can be used to develop open access learning resources on diagnostics/ AMR.

The top three finalist cases were integrated into an online CME module for physicians focused on AMR and the use of clinical diagnostics. The intended audience for this module is healthcare professionals who work in hospitals and clinics and see patients with AMR. The module includes an introduction and three clinical cases. It takes approximately one hour to complete. Click the picture below to view AMR Learning Module.
