Establishing antimicrobial use guidelines

Rosanne Jepson discusses the solutions to the challenges in developing antimicrobial guidelines.

In step 1.11, Rosanne Jepson introduced the challenges associated with antimicrobial guidelines in a small animal referral centre. In the video above, she discusses their approach to establishing and implementing antimicrobial use guidelines at the Queen Mother Hospital for Animals.

It is important to remember that any guidelines must be flexible and you must be reviewing them constantly. You need to be able to make appropriate changes when necessary so that they can be constantly improving.

Which of these solutions are currently in use at your practice and which could you introduce? Is there anything you do at your practice that wasn’t mentioned in the video? Use the comments section to post your answers.

Please find a downloadable copy of the PowerPoint slides used in the video in the downloads section below.
