G20 AMR Pre-event #2
Dr. Simon Otto spoke to the G20 Indonesia 2nd technical pre-event for "Tackling Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR): Curbing the Silent AMR Pandemic" that focused on “Surveillance as the backbone for AMR prevention and control” held on June 29, 2022. AMR is a global public and One Health problem that threatens the health of humans, animals, and the environment. Dr. Otto relayed Canada's experience with and lessons learned from developing national, integrated, One Health surveillance programs for antimicrobial use and resistance that provide evidence for policy and programs to support antimicrobial stewardship. Dr. Otto was one of nine international speakers to over 200 participants from G20 countries, including government and subject matter experts. He emphasized the importance of conducting surveillance across human, animal, and environmental sectors to address AMR and support the health of humans, animals, and the environment.
Sociotechnical system analysis for AMR innovation
Presenter: Michelle Cheng, BSc
Location/Conference: 2021 Virtual One Health Antimicrobial Stewardship Conference
Utilizing a model that reflects mixed-methods research our team aims to describe the barriers and facilitators to optimizing system performance across individual, organizational, geographical, and cultural boundaries. Our study will generate a comprehensive collection of system information to subsequently inform technology development opportunities and knowledge translation interventions that apply to AMR. The following presentation is an overview of our initial phase of work, identifying sociotechnical system elements that influence the use of antimicrobials in humans and animals.
