0:00
Hello, my name is David Livermore, I'm Professor of Medical Microbiology for the University of East Anglia in Norwich. I'm also Public Health England's lead on Antibiotic Resistance. And for 14 years, I headed Public Health England's National Reference Laboratory examining antibiotic resistant bacteria in the United Kingdom. What I want to do in this two-part presentation is to look at national and international surveillance of antibiotic resistance.
0:38
In this first part, I want to look at how data can be collected for surveillance of resistance. Why we seek to do surveillance, and some of the pitfalls and challenges with the data. In the second part, we'll look more at some of the data that have been collected and their interpretation, and how that can be used to assess the success or failure of interventions.
