CIDRAP: Antimicrobial Stewardship Project

The discovery and development of antibiotics were revolutionary for modern medicine. However, with their increased use concerns about antimicrobial resistance and "superbugs" also emerged. The Antimicrobial Stewardship Project (ASP) aims to help society navigate this by "offer[ing] freely available, high-quality information and educational resources on antimicrobial stewardship practice, research, and policy." This initiative from the University of Minnesota's Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy (CIDRAP), which was featured in the 4-12-2019 Scout Report, offers a wide range of approachable online content designed for policymakers, health professionals, and the general public alike. Here, visitors will find recent news articles and policy updates, as well as a podcast and webinars. Instructors may want to check out the Educational Multimedia section, which features an extensive collection of citizen science projects, online games, videos, infographics, and more. In addition, this section includes many workbooks and toolkits for medical professionals, who may also be interested in ASP's Clinical Tools and Bibliography sections. CIDRAP was founded in 2001 and is directed by Dr. Michael T. Osterholm.
