RNOH support WHO Antibiotic Awareness Week 16-22 November
A new video featuring members of the RNOH pharmacy and microbiology teams has been produced in support of the World Health Organisation's Antibiotic Awareness Week, which runs 16-22 November. In the video, the team explain what they are doing to address the issue of antibiotic resistance and improve the efficacy of prescribing at RNOH.
Antibiotic resistance is one of the biggest threats to global health today. It is rising to dangerously high levels in all parts of the world. It is compromising our ability to treat infectious diseases and putting people everywhere at risk. The World Health Organization is leading a global campaign ‘Antibiotics: Handle with Care’ calling on individuals, governments, health and agriculture professionals to take action to address this urgent problem.
RNOH are happy to offer our support to this crucial issue.
