In the framework of the EU project “AMR Patient Alliance – developing educational repository for patient and caregiver awareness of drug resistant infections”, Active Citizenship Network contributed to the Italian translation of the English course “Antimicrobial Resistance: Patient Role in Rational Use” developed by IAPO P4PS Observatory and the Patient Academy for Innovation and Research (PAIR Academy).
The course explains in a simple but detailed way what AMR is, how and when to use antibiotics, how and when to communicate one's needs to the doctor, and what we as citizens but also as civic and patient organizations can do to counter antimicrobial resistance. The aim was to contribute to its translation in order to make it open and accessible to all, for both informational and awareness-raising purposes.
This activity consisted of the translation in Italian language of the online EU course dedicated to the topic of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and to the key role that patients play in the rational and appropriate use of antibiotics.
Two healthcare professionals and indipendent experts involved in the project (here their brief bio), a General Practitioner with Specialized Training, and a Specialist doctor in Hygiene and Preventive Medicine and member of the European Network to Promote Infection Prevention for Patient Safety (EUNETIPS), provided their contribution in carefully supervising the translation of the contents of the online course.
