Thursday November 23, 1PM ET / 10 AM PT
This webinar discusses the Pan-Canadian Framework on antimicrobial resistance (AMR) in Canada, provides an overview of the four key components of the Framework, and highlights next steps on the development of the associated action plan. AMR is one of the most serious global health threats facing the world today, and a complex problem that threatens the health and prosperity of Canadians. As part of Canada’s coordinated response to addressing AMR, a Pan-Canadian Framework for Action on Antimicrobial Resistance and Antimicrobial Use was released in September 2017. The Framework is a high-level policy document that outlines the strategic objectives, outcomes and opportunities to guide collaborative action on AMR. It is based on four components: surveillance; infection prevention and control; stewardship; and research and innovation.
The Framework lays the foundation from which to build the associated action plan. The action pan-Canadian action plan will identify concrete deliverables, measurable outcomes and timeframes to support the implementation of the Framework.
