Have you or a loved one been affected by a drug-resistant infection?

Participate in a Monash research study by sharing your experience with an antimicrobial resistant (AMR) infection

Antimicrobial resistance, sometimes known as a 'drug-resistant infection' or 'superbug',  can affect people from all walks of life— –young and old, healthy and chronically ill. These illnesses often start with something seemingly benign, like a simple cut or a routine medical procedure.  The infection can start as a swollen or painful area, that doesn't go away even after treatment with antibiotics.

Your experiences and insights into either living with or caring for someone with an  antimicrobial resistant infection bacterial infection are extremely important to us.

To help with our study please email:  impactamr-amrsurvivors@monash.edu

The research will help to shape resources and public communications for people living with AMR and for AMR prevention more generally in Australia. The research is funded by the Centre to Impact AMR, Monash University. This study has been approved by the Monash University Human Research Ethics Committee.

If you have been personally affected by or you are a carer of someone who is living with ongoing consequences of an Antimicrobial-resistant infection (superbug) we’d love to hear from you. We will send further information about the study and then you can decide if you want to take part. Participation will involve an interview by Zoom, phone or face to face.  If you are interested please contact:
