Health Education England has surveyed the inclusion of competencies developed by the Government’s expert advisory committee on Antimicrobial Resistance and Healthcare Associated Infection (ARHAI) and Public Health England (PHE) into health professional curricula and the education approaches for the responsible prescribing of antimicrobials

Within both these reports we made a recommendation that HEE will explore the feasibility of an individualised online formative assessment tool for health students and health professionals to support learning on infection prevention and control (IPC) and antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and stewardship (AMS).

Our report outlines the methodology in consulting stakeholders on this feasibility and the conclusions made in considering a system wide formative assessment. A number of learning resources are already available for different professional groups around antimicrobial resistance and stewardship and infection prevention and control.

Most professional groups do not have formal assessment processes to support learning on AMR/IPC/AMS. The term ‘individualised’ needs defining with a clear scope on whether individuals or professional groups will be targeted in different working environments and stages in their career

HEE will consider outcomes from this work, that will inform the future direction of our antimicrobial resistance and sepsis programme.

This report can be located in the HEE slider at the bottom of this page.
