We are excited to announce the fourth multidisciplinary National Students’ Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) Conference taking place on 21st November as part of World Antibiotic Awareness Week 2020, hosted by Public Health England.
Following the successful delivery of the first three multidisciplinary student conferences in 2017, 2018 and 2019 the national student conference on AMR returns for the fourth year – providing a rare and exciting opportunity for students and young professionals in all areas of healthcare to learn and participate in discussion about this serious global threat.
Due to COVID-19 the conference has been redesigned as a virtual event, including talks and breakout sessions. The focus will be on the following topics:
The conference aims to promote collaboration amongst all health-related fields through a One Health approach. Attendants can look forward to an engaging and interactive day. The talks are delivered by key individuals in this field, in a very dynamic style.
This conference will enable you as healthcare professionals of today and tomorrow, to be equipped with an array of knowledge, interpersonal skills, and an insight into the front line in the battle against AMR.
Previous conferences registered a large turnout of students from universities across the UK. As a virtual event we welcome students from across the World. It also offered an exciting opportunity for students to engage and interact with experts on AMR in a One-Health approach.
All delegates will receive a certificate of attendance at the end of the conference.
Students and newly qualified health-professionals studying Nursing – Medicine – Pharmacy – Dentistry – Veterinary Medicine – Healthcare Sciences – (and relevant related courses e.g. Diploma in Pharmacy Services Skills, Dental Technology qualifications etc) are invited.
All the talks at the conference are recorded and available to support your development as a Healthcare professional and scientist.
The conference is organised by Public Health England with support from Health Education England and the British Society for Antimicrobial Chemotherapy.
