Case history from South Africa

Case history from South Africa

Watch this video by Professor Andrew Whitelaw in which he explains why there was a need to develop antimicrobial stewardship in South Africa.

This video expands on the case detailed in Step 2.6 and illustrates the need for measurement in stewardship, explained by Aalaa Afdal earlier this week, to understand what the issues around prescribing are and how to measure whether an intervention to improve prescribing has worked.

You may also consider how the ideas around behaviour change in the previous step would play a part in improvements described by Professor Whitelaw.

You may also like to view the slide set by Dr Heather Finlayson from Tygerberg Hospital, South Africa, in which she outlines where educational opportunities can be found during clinical practice.
