Hospital and Community Antimicrobial Resistance

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) has a direct effect on patient care and patient outcomes. It increases the complexity of treatment and the duration of a hospital stay, resulting in additional burden to patients, clinicians and healthcare systems. The AURA Surveillance System collects data on antimicrobial resistance in hospitals and the community to support a better understanding of local resistance issues and foster the development of targeted responses.
