Survey on prudent use of antimicrobials in practice

This survey has been developed by the Bella Moss Foundation and in conjunction with the Royal Veterinary College in response to the need for further information on how antimicrobial drugs are being used in small animal practice and on awareness of guidelines for prudent antimicrobial use and clinical hygiene. The findings will be used to aid in the development of improved methods promoting the implementation and effectiveness of such guidelines.

Take Survey

Bella Moss Foundation aims to have the analysis completed by June 2014 with the aim of producing the findings as a poster for our One health Conference 13th October 2014 at the Royal Society of medicine, London. www.onehealthbmf.com
