Anyone currently registered to practise as a veterinarian in Australia is invited to complete a survey exploring attitudes towards antibiotic use and resistance.
The research project is being run by the University of Sydney and the University of Technology and is targeted at health and medical professionals including veterinarians, doctors and dentists across Australia.
The single most powerful contributor to antibiotic resistance is the global unrestrained use of antibiotics. The hope is that the findings from the survey—by filling current knowledge gaps—will assist national policy-makers in revising and enhancing national policy and education interventions to stem what poses one of the most important risks to our health today.
The national online survey can be accessed here and is open until 12 November 2016. It only takes 15-20 minutes to complete and all responses remain anonymous and confidential.
