The National Centre for Antimicrobial Stewardship (NCAS) will hold its first annual forum at the Peter Doherty Institute for Infection and Immunity on the 9th November.
NCAS is the first One Health NHMRC Centre for Research Excellence working in the Health Services stream to improve practice and policy around antimicrobial prescribing in humans and animals across hospitals, primary care, aged care, companion and livestock animals.
The day will commence at 09:30 with presentations from the Director, Professor Karin Thursky and senior co-investigators providing a comprehensive overview of the status of antimicrobial use in Australia, the risk of multidrug resistant pathogens, and the challenges of using data to effect change.
After lunch NCAS PhD students will present their research projects together with their primary supervisor.
The day will finish at 16:30.
Attendance at the Forum is free for all delegates.
A light lunch will be served, so RSVPs are essential for catering purposes.
