Description

Professor Alastair Hay is visiting the Division of Primary Care on Thursday 8th March 2018 and will give a talk called “How can community-based research support antimicrobial stewardship?"

Alastair is a GP, Professor of Primary Care and NIHR Research Professor at the Centre for Academic Primary Care, University of Bristol.

In his talk, Alastair will:

  • Give an overview of recent / current primary care research to improve antimicrobial stewardship.
  • Describe how even small changes in community (i.e. the pre-consulting population) behaviour could influence NHS workload and the use of antibiotics.
  • Offer some examples of how community based research could complement the existing primary care approach.
  • Provide results from a recently completed Bristol led community based study (called "EEPRIS").

This seminar is part of the joint seminar/skills programme organised by the Divisions of Primary Care and Epidemiology & Public Health.
