EU-JAMRAI is conducting a qualitative study on attitudes towards core elements of antimicrobial stewardship programmes, and the identification of success stories and barriers of stewardship implementation at different levels of healthcare. We are seeking to explore more deeply the experiences of implementation by professionals at national, hospital, long-term care and primary care level.
The primary objectives of the study are:

Country reports will be disseminated at local level by national focal points. Local conferences or events will be organized to give visibility to the key recommendations and share the reports with key actors working in AMR in different levels of healthcare.
EU report will be disseminated through:
EU-JAMRAI has selected the following articles on core elements. We recommend to the interview respondents reading the documents that apply to their level of healthcare before the interviews:
