Health professionals can learn how to improve antimicrobial stewardship and antimicrobial resistances in their organisations through the Antimicrobial Stewardship (AMS) game.
The AMS game was initially developed in the UK for healthcare workers in low-income and middle-income countries. However, it is equally effective in any health and social care setting in the UK and elsewhere in the world. Up to 14 people can play the game and sessions usually last for 60 minutes. The game is portable, anyone can manage a session, and no external support is required.
The game was developed by the Commonwealth Partnerships for Antimicrobial Stewardship Programme, (CwPAMS), in partnership with Focus Games Ltd and partners in Africa to ensure that it is relevant and effective.
AMS game topics include:
- Introduction to antimicrobial resistance and stewardship
- Appropriate use of antimicrobial agents
- Infection prevention and control
- Stewardship and surveillance
