NIAMRRE Announces Inaugural Cohort for One Health Interprofessional AMR Education Workshop

By Erica Baker posted 05-03-2022 11:00 PM


The National Institute of Antimicrobial Resistance Research and Education (NIAMRRE) is pleased to announce the selection of the initial cohort for its One Health Interprofessional Antimicrobial Resistance Education workshop. The cohort of 33 individuals, representing all One Health disciplines (human, animal, plant, and environmental health), is a diverse mix of practitioners, consultants, staff, faculty, and students from across the United States.

“The concepts of One Health and Interprofessional Education are both rooted in understanding how individual components of systems work together,” said Dr. Paul Plummer, NIAMRRE Executive Director. “It was imperative in our recruitment of this cohort that we build teams with different perspectives on antimicrobial stewardship and decision-making so participants can learn from and evaluate approaches used in other sectors.”

The program will kick off with an in-person workshop at the NIAMRRE Annual Conference, held May 16-18 in Lincoln, Nebraska, in partnership with NIAMRRE member University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Following the conference, the program will transition to online synchronous seminars and asynchronous team topical and case discussions, culminating in a capstone online case discussion and virtual presentation at the October 2022 NIAMRRE Quarterly Research Symposium.
