This episode is the first episode in what is going to be an Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) sub-series. Dr. Andrea Prinzi joins me in this series. Together we breakdown this complex topic. In this episode we start with an overview of the state of AMR, Dr. Prinzi provides some history, and we explain what the series is going to be about. Learning this information can be challenging for professionals, but we are going to break it down as simple as we can. Knowing and understanding this information is a crucial part of our job as Medical Laboratory Scientists. We will go over classes of antibiotics, mechanisms of action, resistance mechanisms and more. Hope you tune in.
