The problem of antibiotic resistance is not only a research challenge, but also an issue of educating and communicating with different groups in society. Policymakers and other stakeholders need current research on which measures works and which do not.
The general public also needs to have an understanding of antibiotic resistance such as simple ways to reduce risks for transmission, why it is important to take prescribed antibiotics, and why one should not insist on getting a prescription for unnecessary antibiotics.
Incorporation of knowledge
CARe is developing resources for schools and universities to incorporate the problem of antibiotic resistance into their curriculum. At CARe, we aim to create resources for multiple areas of studies, i.e., economics, philosophy, medicine and science. In addition, we are in the process of generating information for the general public to provide informal education outside the classrooms.
