Antimicrobial resistance: Turn the Tide

This e-Learning module is an innovative video for medical officers, nurses, nurse practitioners and pharmacists employed by NSW Health working in hospital and community settings. The video focuses on the health care worker’s role in improving appropriate use of antimicrobials and emphasises a team approach to antimicrobial stewardship.

It includes a moving patient story illustrating the impact of antimicrobial resistance on a patient’s quality of life. It also includes interviews with a range of hospital staff members who share their experience, answer questions about what antimicrobial stewardship is and why it is so important, and they describe how all staff can help improve the way antibiotics are used in hospitals.
