You can now follow the NHS Tayside Antimicrobial Management Team (AMT) on Twitter @TaysideAMT
Antimicrobial resistance is a growing concern for both healthcare delivery and the wider public health agenda.
Without antibiotics, the ability to manage infection becomes extremely difficult and some surgical interventions and cancer therapies may also become compromised in the future if we lose this vital resource.
NHS Tayside Antimicrobial Team strives to keep antibiotics working by engaging the multi professional workforce in antimicrobial stewardship that is relevant to their roles and responsibilities.
Through the use of Twitter the team aims to inform followers of local, national and international developments in antimicrobial stewardship and the wider antimicrobial resistance agenda.
