Combating antimicrobial resistance (AMR)
With the threat of major pandemics or deadly outbreaks of new resistant microorganisms, infections have become, once again, a big concern for human health. Antibiotic resistance is a real sword of Damocles, threatening to send our healthcare system back to the Middle Ages. To combat this peril, antibiotic stewardship needs to be actively deployed for the responsible and efficient use of these therapeutic tools. Delayed, incomplete and ineffective therapies contribute to the increasing threat of AMR and can increase chances of sepsis. I believe that a combined AMR/sepsis register could help with channeling the efforts of AMR countermeasures. United we stand more chances of winning the fight! Because all of us need to be resistance fighters.
