Description

Prairie Diagnostic Services in collaboration with the Western College of Veterinary Medicine and the Saskatchewan Ministry of Agriculture are pleased to host the third annual antimicrobial resistance and antimicrobial usage roundtable. The event will take place on September 20, 2017 at the Western College of Veterinary Medicine from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM.

This gathering is intended to provide an opportunity for interdisciplinary conversation on the problem of antimicrobial resistance and is open to researchers, educators, practitioners, and policy makers from both animal and human health. Representing the WCVM and PDS regional geography of service, we are hoping to contribute to a Western Canadian AMR and AMU education, raising awareness, and interdisciplinary collaboration building.

The morning session will include updates from the Veterinary Drugs Directorate (Dr. Manisha Mehrotra via teleconference), Canadian Integrated Program for Antimicrobial Resistance Surveillance (CIPARS) (Dr. Sheryl Gow), and a presentation from Regina Qu’Appelle Health Region Antimicrobial Stewardship Program team.

Noon hour presentation by Dr. Brian Lubbers (Microbial Research and Surveillance Laboratory, Kansas State University) “Antimicrobial susceptibility testing and Antimicrobial resistance surveillance – Where have we been, where are we & where are we going” will be open to the WCVM public.

The afternoon session will include presentation by Dr. Cheryl Waldner on recent advances in antimicrobial usage modelling, a lecture on antimicrobial pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics by Dr. Trisha Dowling (Minimum Inhibitory Concentrations and Plasma Drug Concentrations: What do they mean for you and me?), field research updates from Dr. Nathan Erickson (Change in the rates of field isolation and antimicrobial susceptibility of bacterial pathogens collected from fall placed feedlot steers), and diagnostic laboratory updates from Dr. Musangu Ngeleka.

A facilitated roundtable discussion (moderated by Dr. Carl Johnson) will conclude the day with an open conversation, sharing ideas, and brainstorming of the actionable items for the group. This year we are proposing to focus the roundtable discussion on brainstorming the user requirements for diagnostic laboratory support.
