Global Antimicrobial Resistance Surveillance System (GLASS) Report - Early Implementation 2016-17

Antimicrobial Resistance is on the lips of each and every health care professional not only in Australia but around the world. A recent report from the World Health Organisation (WHO) In this international report, tells us the most commonly reported resistant bacteria were E. coli, Klebsiella, Staph. aureus, and Strep pneumoniae. There were huge variations in rates of antimicrobial resistance to commonly used antibiotics in different countries. This report was published in the Australian Association of Consultant Pharmacy and is certainly worth sharing again via MIMS Matters with all our subscribers and readers
