Antimicrobial resistance poses a growing threat to public health and the provision of health care. Its surveillance should provide up-to-date and relevant information to monitor the appropriateness of therapy guidelines, antibiotic formulary, antibiotic stewardship programmes, public health interven Cited by: existing national antimicrobial resistance surveillance and monitoring programmes in food-producing animals and in products of animal origin intended for human consumption. Article Purpose of surveillance and monitoring Active surveillance and monitoring are core parts of national antimicrobial resistance surveillance programmes. Justification for surveillance of antimicrobial resistance AMR surveillance data help monitor susceptibility patterns of microorganisms to antimicrobial agents. Regular dissemination of data can help policy-makers to revise the recommendations for case management in health facilities and contribute to systematic combating of AMR. Improvement the awareness of antimicrobial resistance and promote behavioral change Studying the pattern of antimicrobial resistance Implementing Infection control programs Implementing an antibiotic stewardship program Study .

In , the WHO introduced the Global Antimicrobial Resistance Surveillance System (GLASS) to provide a more standardized approach to global AMR surveillance on a priority list of bacteria, diseases and types of specimen. 6, 12 GLASS provides guidance to standardize AMR data, which can be compared among countries and indicate global patterns and trends in resistance.

Antimicrobial resistance surveillance in Europe Annual Report of the European Antimicrobial Resistance Surveillance Network (EARS-Net). Stockholm: ECDC; Cover picture.   To optimize the value of surveillance efforts to monitor antibiotic use and antimicrobial resistance, programs need to be well-designed, adaptable, properly managed and able to detect significant shifts in microbial susceptibilities. Continuous surveillance of emergent pathogens and antimicrobial resistance is necessary in order to detect. Surveillance of antimicrobial use tracks how and why antimicrobials are being used and misused by patients and healthcare providers. Monitoring antimicrobial prescription and consumption behavior provides insights and tools needed to inform therapy decisions, to assess the public health consequences of antimicrobial misuse, and to evaluate the impact resistance containment interventions.

In an age where antimicrobial resistance amongst pathogens grows more prevalent, particularly in the hospital setting, antimicrobial stewardship is an evidence-based, proven measure in the battle against resistance and infection. This single comprehensive, definitive reference work is written by an international team of acknowledged experts in the field. Surveillance of antimicrobial use tracks how and why antimicrobials are being used by patients and healthcare providers. Monitoring antimicrobial prescription and consumption behaviour provides insights and tools needed to inform therapy decisions, to assess the public health consequences of antimicrobial misuse, and to evaluate the impact of resistance containment interventions. Antimicrobial resistance poses a growing threat to public health and the provision of health care. Its surveillance should provide up-to-date and relevant information to monitor the appropriateness of therapy guidelines, antibiotic formulary, antibiotic stewardship programmes, public health interventions, infection control policies, and antimicrobial development. to Guidelines for Surveillance of Drug Resistance in Tuberculosis (1) and Assessment of Therapeutic Efficacy of Antimalarial Drugs (2), respectively. This manual is designed to be used in con-junction with the WHO Global Strategy for Containment of Antimicrobial Resistance (3), WHO Recommended Surveillance Standards (4) and the.
