  • Doctors and vets working together for antibiotic stewardship

    11/07/2018 Duración: 01h02min

    Doctors and the farming industry are often blamed for overuse of antibiotics that spurs the growing problem of antimicrobial resistance - but the professions are using different methods to combat resistance and reduce overuse. In this roundtable, we bring medics and vets together to discuss the problem - where antibiotic resistance arises, how resistance genes propagate through the environment and between countries, and what non-drug approaches can be used to reduce the need for antibiotics.
