Antimicrobial resistance research at the University of Bristol: new video now available

25 November 2014

Researchers at the University of Bristol's Centre for Academic Primary Care have released a new video about their latest research into antibiotic resistance.

In the video Professor Alastair Hay and his colleagues give an overview of the research into antibiotic resistance being carried out at the University of Bristol's Centre for Academic Primary Care (CAPC). The research will help GPs and other health professionals improve the use of antibiotics in primary care. Professor Hay's group at the CAPC is involved in 15 projects including 9 clinical trials which have recruited more than 20,000 patients. The group's long-term goals are to identify: (i) which are the patients who are most likely to benefit from antibiotics; (ii) which are the patients from whom antibiotics can be safely withheld; and (iii) which treatments will help patients get over the worst of their symptoms without antibiotics.
