Beyond AMR Surveillance: Adapting AMR Surveillance to Changing Technology and Prevention Needs

September 9, 2021

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

  1. Describe key targets in the continuum of surveillance of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and how tracking them can inform public health efforts
  2. Summarize the challenges of current AMR surveillance efforts globally and opportunities for building robust AMR surveillance in the future.
  3. List novel technologies that will likely be routine over next 10 years in most clinical laboratories in developed countries and discuss their potential implications for surveillance programs.
  4. Discuss how CDC's National Healthcare Safety Network are using electronically captured data on antimicrobial resistance, the challenges to using this data for surveillance and antibiograms, and the future vision offered by advances in informatics.
