Understand antibiotic resistance, and how antimicrobial stewardship can slow down or reduce it, with this free online course
We're outside the Dundee Hospital where yesterday a second patient just died from a deadly, resistant infection.
The World Health Organisation has warned that without urgent action, we're heading for an era in which common infections-- which have been treatable with antibiotics for decades-- can kill once more.
He had a chest infection and was given lots of different antibiotics from the GP.
It's turned out that this patient has managed to acquire a much more resistant bacterial infection than we would normally see.
