Research Opportunity on Antibiotic Stewardship

The Colorado School of Public Health, in conjunction with the CDC, is conducting research to assess the role of veterinary support staff in the clinic and gather their attitudes and beliefs regarding antimicrobial use, resistance, and stewardship. Responses to their survey will make a substantial impact on the overall understanding of antibiotic use in small animal medicine. This study is the first of its kind, and they value the input of these support staff.
Participants are asked to complete a 5-minute, anonymous and confidential survey. Responses will be used to develop training tools and sustainable antibiotic use plans. The survey closes March 31st, 2021. Researchers will be presenting the results at the AVMA conference in August and then published publicly later in 2021.
