Defining the problem in behavioural terms

In this video, we explain how a behavioural analysis can be used to improve antimicrobial stewardship.

Dr Fabiana Lorencatto discusses how problems in antimicrobial stewardship interventions can be defined in behavioural terms.

To fully understand why a problem is occurring, it is important to deduce each causative factor and think about how it can be fixed. This must be followed by a careful analysis of what actions must be taken, who is responsible for its implementation, and the places in which it is required the most.

Please find a downloadable PDF of the PowerPoint slides below.
