Antimicrobial Stewardship (AMS) Project
There are several effective interventions that reduce the use of antibiotic prescribing in primary care, however each are different and might potentially work best if matched to practitioners with different needs. But we don’t know a couple of things.
What is the best way to frame these effective interventions so that GPs are able to choose one that best suits their needs?
How should we introduce them to GPs?
What are the tools and resources that should be provided?
How should we recruit for and deliver this intervention?
To answer these questions, we would like to engage with local GPs to co-design this important project.
Our program of research for the next couple of years is to develop and implement strategies to help GPs talk to patients about antibiotic use, and to target antibiotics in the most effective way. This is our Antimicrobial Stewardship (AMS) research agenda.
Co-designing research with stakeholders enables researchers to conduct projects that have the best chances of success because these stakeholders have important experiences that are critical to study design. Therefore, we are asking GPs to partner with us to co-design some of our AMS research.
