National Round Table on Antibiotic Resistance in Primary Care

What do we know and what do we still need to know?

Antibiotic resistance is projected to lead to 10 Million deaths and cost over $66 Trillion per year by 2050. This one-day meeting brings researchers, government health departments; NPS-MedicineWise; Therapeutic Guidelines; Primary Healthcare Networks; general practice colleges to address the growing problem of antibiotic resistance, and the role of improved prescribing in primary care. The day will be open – anyone can come (with a modest fee for refreshment of $60).

Speakers include: Dame Sally Davies (Chief Medical Officer, UK), Brendan Murphy (Chief Commonwealth Medical Officer), Kirsty Buising (NCAS), Chris Del Mar (CREMARA, Bond), Jonathan Dartnell (NPS-MedicineWise), and Nick Graves (QUT).

  1. What is contribution of primary care to the global problem?
  2. What is the effectiveness of different strategies to reduce antibiotic use in primary care?
  3. What is the achievable minimum use of antibiotics?
