2022 CRE REDUCE Education Program

20 January 2022

The NHMRC-funded UQ Centre of Research Excellence in Redefining Antimicrobial Use to Reduce Resistance presents the 2022 preliminary education program. This year we hope to share our research and knowledge and expand our audience to make a real difference to patient outcomes worldwide. We invite potential sponsors to seize this ideal opportunity to partner with us. The program is scheduled to begin on 21 March 2022.

We offer sponsorship opportunities, including the options for capacity building in antimicrobial stewardship, design of clinical studies and design of better drug dosing regimens in Australia and the Asia-Pacific region. 

CRE REDUCE consistently attracts world-leading experts to deliver relevant and up-to-date knowledge in a format that is applicable to a broad audience of practitioners. In 2021 we delivered 11 seminars online and in-person, attracting 2333 registrations from 40 countries and added 50 recordings to our library of 158 YouTube videos which are freely available worldwide to support clinicians (9k views in 2021).

CRE REDUCE is dedicated to ensuring optimal antibiotic use and is confident that the informative events planned for 2022 will continue our momentum towards achieving this goal.

On average, the OPAT/HITH Masterclass webinars regularly achieve 195 registrations from invitations sent to the CRE REDUCE subscription list. Participants attend from across Australia, Malaysia, New Zealand, the United States of America, the United Kingdom, Europe, Indonesia, Korea and beyond.

The COVID-19 Therapeutics Whirlwind webinar held in February 2021 received 390 registrations from 31 different countries, including academic researchers, infectious disease physicians, microbiologists, pharmacists, clinicians and registrars, scientists, nurses, among other health professionals.
