“Engaging with patients and closing knowledge gaps to fight antimicrobial resistance: the role in infection prevention and antimicrobial stewardship”
Health First Europe and the members of the European Patient Group on Antimicrobial Resistance are glad to invite you to a Parliament roundtable debate entitled “Engaging with patients and closing knowledge gaps to fight antimicrobial resistance: the role in infection prevention and antimicrobial stewardship”.
The event will take place in a hybrid format on Thursday 27th October from 10.00 to 11.30 am CEST, kindly hosted by MEP Ondřej Knotek (Renew Europe, Czech Republic), and under the patronage of the Czech Presidency of the Council of the EU.
The goal of this meeting is to bring the voice of patients to the heart of the EU’s health agenda on antimicrobial resistance. Members of the AMR Patient Group will share their experiences of dealing with resistant bacteria and will call for actions at the European and national levels to combat this serious public health threat. Please find below the event programme.
Join us to learn more about how AMR affects patients across Europe and how everyone can take action to prevent the development of resistant bacteria.
Following the speakers’ presentations, there will be some time for an interactive discussion with the audience.

About the European Patient Group on Antimicrobial Resistance
The AMR Patient Group is an initiative by Health First Europe and is comprised of national patient associations from across Europe. The group aims to address the gap in awareness at the patient-level about the danger of antibiotic misuse and the lack of effective infection prevention measures. The AMR Patient Group will empower patients across Europe with the necessary knowledge about antimicrobial resistance so that everyone understands when it is appropriate to take antibiotics and how to take them responsibly.
