Companion animal practice – antimicrobial use guidelines
In this video, Rosanne Jepson, an associate Professor in small animal internal medicine at the Royal Veterinary College, discusses the challenges to developing antimicrobial use guidelines in companion animal practice. Some suggested aims to consider when developing antimicrobial prescribing guidelines are as follows:
- Easy to use and apply in hospitals.
- Ensure appropriate antimicrobial prescribing.
- Provide a forum for discussion in complex cases.
- Achieve individual and team accountability for use of antimicrobial agents.
- Provide a platform for audit and understanding of antimicrobial prescribing.
- Help educate undergraduate students on rotation.
