Incorporating antimicrobial stewardship into hospital infection control programs: a video by Professor Fosalade Ogunsola

You may now have questions such as:

What are the links between Infection Prevention (IPC) and Antimicrobial Stewardship (AMS)?

How can we help develop a national programme as outlined by Professor Shaheen Mehtar in step 2.8.

In this video Professor Fosalade Ogunsola, Clinical Microbiologist, Chair Nigerian Infection Control Association, Chair Elect ICAN, through her role promoting IPC and AMR prevention in Nigeria and Africa, answers these questions.
