Antibiotic Awareness Week November 12-18
Think you need antibiotics? Think Twice. Seek Advice.
Unnecessary antibiotic use and misuse directly contribute to the rise in resistant bacteria. Antibiotic Awareness Week promotes cautious and correct use of antibiotics to help prevent and control the spread of bacteria that develop resistance to the medications.
You can find many resources on antibiotic resistance through the links on the AAW banner on our website (www.ipac-canada.org).
Resources are available through IPAC Canada, the World Health Organization, and the National Collaborating Centre for Infectious Diseases.
