Colleagues are also encouraged to visit the Antibiotic Guardian shared learning pages to find out more about a range of projects that have considered/used virtual means of communication.

One example is the Getting Infection Right First Time project which Sue Bowler 2018 Das Pillay Award Winner was a co-lead for as part of the Antimicrobial stewardship team, also including Lauren Rose, Annie Joseph with the HELM team from Nottingham University. It is a great example of inter-professional development of a learning resource, aimed at an inter-professional audience.
