The CIDRAP Antimicrobial Stewardship project was launched in July 2016 with the goal of building an online international community focused on antimicrobial stewardship. CIDRAP-ASP is led by Dr. Michael Osterholm (a member of the U.S. Department of State Science Envoy) and advised by faculty experts that encompass human and animal health around the globe. I was fortunate to be a member of the founding team as the Outreach Coordinator where I engage with antimicrobial stewardship experts from government, academia, clinical settings and industry.
Antimicrobial resistance is a critical global public health issue, and antimicrobial stewardship strategies are key to curtailing the problem. However, open access to information that is credible, and collaborative is essential. CIDRAP's Antimicrobial Stewardship Project provides current, accurate, and comprehensive information including news, resources, podcasts and webinars on the topic and works to build an online community to address leading issues. This presentation will describe the progress and components of the Antimicrobial Stewardship Project including our focus on ‘One Health, Diagnostics, Clinical Tools and Strategic Partnerships’ with organizations and industry partners.
