These participants came from a wide range of professions too, some examples of which include infection control professionals, infectious diseases consultants, physicians, clinical microbiologists, pharmacists, and those working in third-level education.

Overall learner satisfaction was high, with an average rating of 4.7 out of 5 stars. Here is what some of our participants had to say about the course:

Three speech bubbles with a quote from our learners inside each. From top to bottom, they read: "Good course, it was very informative, I liked the videos and questionnaire. The program was easy to use. Thank you!", "The social sciences aspect of antimicrobial prescribing and any interventions related to it is hugely important! As an infectious diseases consultant I think all involved with AMS programmes should have training in this.", and "We can learn more for a social sciences approach with this course and it is just what I need for my next research..."
