Roundtable 5: One Health in context and practice

One Health is a key component of the policy and communications response to AMR. It combines perspectives from environmental, animal and human health and has been applied in a myriad of ways, for example, in the surveillance of microbial resistant genes in waterways, the management of zoonotic disease vectors, and to build alliances for research and practice in human and animal health and food production. In this roundtable event, our experts focus on how One Health is put into action and the insights that have been generated for effective and sustained responses to AMR.

Roundtable 4: Governing antimicrobial use in clinical settings

Antimicrobial stewardship in hospital settings is a mainstay of the national and international response to the bacterial resistance threat and many advances have been made in Australia and internationally. However, taking AMS imperatives to the bedside and responding to patient needs can be a profound scientific, procedural and medical challenge. Hospitals are also complex social organisations, with their own imperatives and needs. In this roundtable event, leading social- and clinician-researchers reflect on what has been learned about the governance of antimicrobial use in the hospital and discuss the agenda for further social research in this field.
