The European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) has launched a survey to assess healthcare workers’ knowledge and perceptions about antibiotic use and resistance. 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.
Following a process of validation and piloting across Europe, the survey is now available for completion. 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
Deadline: 1 March 2019
