Healthy Food in Health Care: Improving Antibiotic Stewardship in Animal Agriculture - Policy Action Through Storytelling
Recorded On: 08/09/2016
Advocacy to promote policy action can be strengthened through the sharing of stories of people and communities personally impacted. With the issue of antibiotic resistance, this includes the stories of the families and survivors of antibiotic resistant infections and the clinicians working to heal these patients. The Clinician Champions in Comprehensive Antibiotic Stewardship (CCCAS) Collaborative hosted this webinar to arm clinicians and others with tools to share their firsthand struggle with resistant infections with administrators and public policy makers to motivate action towards antibiotic stewardship. Emphasis was placed on the linkage between antibiotic use in animal agriculture and the impact on the effectiveness of antibiotics in human medicine. Speakers included Julia E. Szymczak and Evan Lerner.
