Antibiotic prescribing in hospitals across different countries


This animation summarises the key findings from a study conducted at Imperial College London investigating the challenges facing healthcare professionals who are trying to optimise antibiotic use in hospitals across different countries. The study is part of a PhD study investigating the Impact of Culture and Team Dynamics on the Implementation of Antimicrobial Stewardship Programmes. It was funded by research grants through the Economic and Social Science Research Council (ESRC) and the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR).

Doors opening and infectious risk in clean surgery: A Prospective, Cross-sectional Study, the ARIBO project

I had the chance the present some preliminary results of the ARIBO project at the last European Conference of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases during which we assessed healthcare professionals behaviour during orthopaedic and cardiac procedures and it impact on the infectious risk.

The audience seemed to be interested with very good questions: what is the number of meters performed by people and what’s the impact on the air contamination? Is the type of ventilation system prevent the risk link to bad behaviour?

You will find below the PDF of the presentation. Feel free to comment!!!!

The official launch of the Antimicrobial Research Collaborative (ARC)


ARC fellowsOne of the world’s most ambitious collaborations to tackle the rise of drug resistant infections has launched at Imperial College London the 25th of september.

The Antimicrobial Research Collaborative (ARC) at Imperial we are attacking antimicrobial resistance from all angles. By bringing together leaders in microbiology, engineering, chemistry, clinical research, epidemiology, health economics, and more, we take a holistic approach to tackling this great threat to humanity.

Researchers, clinicians and allied healthcare professionals from Imperial’s faculties, Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust, industrial and third party collaborators will work together to address the global threat of drug-resistant infections.  They will conduct interdisciplinary research in drug-resistant infections, and translate findings into novel infection prevention strategies and therapies that can benefit patients.

Six recipients from Imperial’s School of Public Health, Department of Medicine and Life Sciences were awarded ARC Early Career Research Fellowships. These are one year funding awards for early career postdoctoral researchers who are working in the field of antimicrobial research.

Dr Martin Cole, Imperial alumnus and former Director Research Programmes, GSK (Pharma), presented the fellowships to Dr Gabriel Birgand, Dr Enrique Castro-Sanchez, Dr Myrsini Kaforou, Dr Johanna Rhodes, Dr Simren Gill and Dr Martina Valentini at the event.

Further information on ARC can be found on the ARC pages.
