Seminar on Antibiotic Resistance Prevention

Seminar on Antibiotic Resistance Prevention

On September 16, 2022, interns of GP 610 of the group took part in a seminar on the prevention of antibiotic resistance, which was held in polyclinic No. 3 in Semey. The seminar speakers noted that antibiotic resistance is one of the most dangerous and rapidly growing threats to public health around the world.

According to the WHO European Region, which includes 53 countries, more than 50% of infections today are caused by pathogens resistant to antimicrobial drugs. Emphasis was placed on rational use, especially inappropriate prescribing of antibiotics, which is a determining factor in the development of antibiotic resistance.

The workshop participants were presented with WHO recommendations, which are addressed to health workers, to prevent resistance:

  • if you think that a patient may need antibiotics, if possible, do a confirmatory test and find out which antibiotic is needed;
  • prescribe and dispense antibiotics only when they are really needed, according to up-to-date instructions;
  • prescribe and dispense the proper antibiotics at the right dosages and for the right course reception;
  • prevent infections – keep hands, tools and the environment clean;
  • make sure your patients get vaccinated on time.

At the end of the seminar, questions from the audience were answered.
