  2. The Canadian Antimicrobial Stewardship Webinar Series

INTRODUCING THE CAN AMS! SERIES

CAN AMS! is a new webinar series focused on antimicrobial stewardship (AMS) interventions. Leaders in AMS from across Canada share examples of what has been done to implement evidence-based interventions, with the goal to inspire what CAN be done to help slow the rise and spread of antimicrobial resistance (AMR).

The series aims to:

  • highlight and build greater knowledge of evidence-based AMS interventions
  • help bridge knowledge gaps and capacity challenges that can limit the
    development of AMS interventions, and
  • promote broad collaboration on AMS across regions, settings, and sectors.

CAN AMS! events promote a One Health frame for AMS to raise awareness for the interconnected drivers and consequences of AMR, and the need for shared solutions across human, animal, and environmental health domains.
