Antibiotic resistance is driven by the excess prescription of antibiotics resulting in difficult to treat ‘resistant infections’. National borders are no barrier for the spread of resistant infections and close cross-border cooperation is essential to understand patterns and set up interventions.
This conference will bring together participants from the Island of Ireland and feature presentations from national and international experts. Participants are encouraged to share their research, propose interventions and stewardship programmes, develop new collaborations and present new methodologies in the area of antibiotic prescribing and infections.
The overarching objective is to support, develop and implement a collaborative approach to the challenges and future of infection management including how to meet the challenge of antibiotic resistance.
