PHO Rounds: Microbiology -  Antimicrobial Use, Resistance and Stewardship in Animals

Antimicrobials are widely used in animals, which has led to concern about antimicrobial use and resistance in veterinary medicine and agriculture. Antimicrobials are required in many situations for animal health and welfare, but any use of antimicrobials can create a degree of risk for the emergence of resistance in animal and human pathogens. This presentation provides a general overview of how antimicrobials are used across the wide spectrum of veterinary medicine and agriculture; discusses relevant resistance issues; assesses the role of antimicrobial use in animals on resistance in human pathogens; and discusses various limitations in data and action.

By the end of this session, participants will be able to:

1) Explain how antimicrobials are used and managed in animals
2) Explain the role of antimicrobial use in animals on antimicrobial resistance in humans
3) Identify antimicrobial stewardship practices that are in use, or which could be used, in animals
4) Explain data and knowledge gaps pertaining to antimicrobial use and resistance in animals
