Europe wide survey of healthcare workers knowledge and attitudes about antibiotic use and resistance – DEADLINE: 24 February 2019

On behalf of the EWMA Executive Committee, the European Medicines Agency (EMA) and the European Centre for Disease Control (ECDC), you are invited to take part in an ECDC-funded survey to assess healthcare workers’ knowledge and perceptions about antibiotic use and resistance 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.

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.

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

The survey should not take more than 5-10 minutes to complete and the deadline for submissions is 24 February 2019.
