Launch of Europe wide survey of healthcare workers knowledge and attitudes about antibiotic use and resistance

Launch of Europe wide survey of healthcare workers knowledge and attitudes about antibiotic use and resistance

On 28 January 2019, an ECDC-funded* survey to assess healthcare workers’ knowledge and perceptions about antibiotic use and resistance launched across Europe. Previous studies have mostly focused on the general public and medical students, highlighting a gap in the understanding of these topics by healthcare workers and by other health students.

Following a process of validation and piloting across Europe, the survey is now available for completion. The survey closes on 14 February 2019.

The survey is also available in 25 additional languages (Table 1).

The aim is to have a return of 10,000+ responses with representation from healthcare workers including doctors, nurses, midwives, dentists, pharmacists, clinical scientists, hospital managers, allied health professionals, nursing associates, technicians and healthcare students. Table 2 highlights the calculated sample size per professional group by country however we would welcome significantly more responses.

The objectives of the study for ECDC are:

  • to gain a better understanding of their knowledge and perceptions to provide a base to support future needs in terms of policy and education changes, and
  • to fill in gaps in terms of evaluation of communication campaigns targeting healthcare workers

 

Please cascade the link of the survey actively to relevant organisations and colleagues as well as healthcare students. If you are using social media please use #ECDCAntibioticSurvey. For questions about this survey do not hesitate to contact Dr Diane Ashiru-Oredope.
