Infection control in the 21st century has to become a priority once again and we all have a part to play/ The antibiotics that we currently have our disposal are becoming less reliable at curing bacterial infections.

We invite you all to join us and make a pledge to commit to at least one change in your day-to-day role, or in your own daily life that will make a difference in our fight against a significant worldwide threat to human health and well-being.

It is clear that if we are to combat the growing problem of antibiotic resistance we need to minimise the risk of developing bacterial infection in the first place.

Infection control in the 21st century has to become a priority once again and we all have a part to play.

The antibiotics that we currently have at our disposal are becoming less reliable at curing bacterial infections.

Now we hope that the last three weeks has been informative and that you feel more aware of the way that infections caused by antibiotic resistant bacteria can spread in health and social care environments.

But just as importantly, we hope that you have a better understanding of some of the steps that we can all take to minimise the risk of spreading disease.

We invite you all join us and make a pledge to commit to at least one change in your day to day role or in your own daily life that will make a difference in our fight against this significant, worldwide threat to human health and well being.

As we have reached the end of the course, we would really appreciate your structured feedback via our post-course survey.
