Sponsor Innovation Webinar: Antimicrobial Resistance in the Time of COVID-19
Sponsored by GE | Roche
Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) has been a silent pandemic spanning 2 decades. Without a coordinated response, AMR may be an ongoing threat to modern medicine. Learn about a new U.S. action plan designed to combat AMR and the potential impact of COVID-19.
All healthcare providers
At the end of the presentation, the attendee should be able to:
- Restate why AMR potentially poses a greater existential threat than COVID-19;
- Describe the 5 goals laid out in the National Action Plan for Combating Antibiotic-Resistant Bacteria;
- Discuss how the COVID-19 pandemic may hinder or help the fight against AMR.
