ISAC is pleased to announce the launch of its first e-module:
Respiratory Tract Infections: Vaccination as a tool for reducing AMR
 
This course has been created as part of the ISAC Academy series of short courses on infection topics. This module was developed by ISAC’s Immunisations and Vaccines Working Group, led by Dr David McIntosh and Dr Mario Ramirez.

It is designed to help you build your understanding of how vaccinations can help to prevent antimicrobial resistance in relation to respiratory tract infections, like pneumonia.

Course Aims
The SARS-CoV-2 pandemic has highlighted the severe health consequences associated with respiratory tract infection. Pneumonia continues to be a global problem which requires treatment with antimicrobials. However, inappropriate prescribing of antimicrobials for respiratory tract infections can increase the global burden of antimicrobial resistance.

The course explores the causes of respiratory tract infections and the epidemiological effect of SARS-CoV-2 pandemic on RTIs and antimicrobial prescribing. It also explores antimicrobial resistance and diagnostics before discussing the role of vaccines in reducing antimicrobial resistance.

 

You can access a number of free online courses from stakeholders via our E-learning Resources page.
