Event Description

Full Description:
The threat of antibiotic resistance is real. By 2050, it is estimated that antimicrobial resistant infections will have a higher fatality rate than cancer. Even today, if you present to hospital with severe sepsis you have a greater chance of dying than if you have had a heart-attack. Resistance to antibiotics increases the risk of mortality and complicates treatment when these infections occur. Join our expert panel as they discuss this rising global health issue and learn about when you should take antibiotics and what we can do together to decrease antibiotic resistance.
