This November, the University of Exeter’s College of Medicine and Health will offer the online CPD course “A One Health perspective on AMR”. The course will take a ‘One Health’ approach to understanding antimicrobial resistance (AMR), by considering the important roles that humans, animals, and the environment play in the emergence and spread of AMR.
Speakers will include lecturers and professors in environmental microbiology – Dr Anne Leonard, Dr Aimee Murray, Dr Michiel Vos, Prof Will Gaze, and healthcare primary care – Dr Emma Pitchforth. As well as Prof Jason Snape (Global head of Environment, AstraZeneca), Environment Agency representatives, and postdoctoral and PhD researchers.
The course is aimed at those who are new to this topic or are approaching AMR through an interdisciplinary approach – including professionals and organisations with AMR in their portfolio, and early-career researchers/postgraduates undertaking research.
Attendees can expect to learn the key concepts of AMR, gain a better understanding of the role that the environment, animals and humans play in the spread of AMR, and gain a better understanding of how to increase research impact and better align research with different stakeholders. A certificate will be issued upon successful completion of the course.
DATES: The course will run online (via Zoom) for four weeks, from 8th – 29th November, with a pre-reading week on 1st November.
