How did the COVID-19 pandemic impact antibiotic prescribing and antimicrobial stewardship in acute care settings?

Research output: Other contribution

Abstract

This research project addresses antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and antimicrobial stewardship (AMS) in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. It explores the implementation of AMS and antibiotic prescribing practices before and during the pandemic at an NHS Foundation Trust in the UK. Utilising a combination of systematic literature review, retrospective patient record analysis, and a prospective survey, the study aims to assess AMS strategies, evaluate antibiotic prescribing practices, and understand healthcare professionals' knowledge, attitudes, and perceptions towards AMS. Findings from this comprehensive study offer valuable insights into the challenges and strategies of combating AMR in acute care settings during a global health crisis.
