Antimicrobial Resistance: Looking beyond the microbiological

Antimicrobial Resistance: Looking beyond the microbiological
The Society for Applied Microbiology will this year host its fourth Annual AMR Meeting with the aim of updating professionals involved in the healthcare of humans and animals in relation to infection and use of antimicrobials.

Many factors contribute to antimicrobial resistance beyond the biological processes we are familiar with, such as political, economic, socio-cultural, environmental and other external influences. The most effective actions to reduce and control AMR will likely involve changes in social practices and the use of social science as a tool to fight it. This may include a closer look at how farmers and vets manage livestock production for human consumption. It must also remain a priority to incentivise the next generation of scientists in the search for novel antimicrobial compounds. 

This AMR meeting will discuss international strategies and their application to a one health model, reduction targets in agriculture, communicating vital messages, the harmonisation of antibiotic prescriptions and how farmers can play a vital role in improving public health.
