Antibiotic Champion Award 2016-2017
In 2016 BEVA received a national Antibiotic Guardian award from Public Health England in recognition of the work being done to promote responsible antibiotic use. This award is a reflection on the work of individual veterinary practices in developing protocols for optimal use of antimicrobials. Therefore, this year to recognise world antibiotic awareness week (16th to 22nd November, 2016) and European Antibiotic Awareness Day (18th November), BEVA are encouraging members to document their efforts to reduce the use of critically important antibiotics.
The process is simple, and just requires individuals to share sales data (in mls) of chosen antibiotics. Practices that document a reduction in antibiotic sales of these drugs will be awarded a BEVA Antibiotic Champion Award that can be used to promote individual practices and promote public awareness of antibiotic awareness.
Members are also encouraged to sign up to be antibiotic guardians at www.antibioticguardian.com
