This section provides examples of different interventions and guidelines that can be incorporated into an infection prevention and control program to help limit the spread of antibiotic resistance.
While they provide documented evidence of what can work, each health care facility needs to do their own assessment to understand what is needed and appropriate for their setting. The interventions have been separated into basic, infection specific and pathogen specific interventions.
In MEASURE you find tools and resources for measuring various aspects of antibiotic resistance and use (for example point prevalence survey protocols and knowledge, attitudes, beliefs and practices questionnaires):
- Burden of antibiotic resistance
- Antibiotic resistance
- Consumption of antibiotics
- Appropriateness of use
- Quality of antibiotics
- Knowledge, attitudes, beliefs and practices – KABP
Educational resources and campaign materials for health care workers and civil society are collected in RAISE AWARENESS.
