Protect Me ToolKit
Antimicrobial resistance is a clinical problem that is recognised internationally as one of the largest threats to human and animal health. We believe that effective, self-regulation on the responsible use of antimicrobials is a more suitable option than a legislative solution.
Our award-winning ToolKit, modelled on the BSAVA PROTECT guidelines, has been developed to support you in using antibiotics responsibly.
There is considerable evidence in human health that auditing antimicrobial use can be a powerful tool to changing prescribing practices. If the highest priority critically important antibiotics are used sparingly then we can preserve their effectiveness for the future. BEVA has created a flexible framework allowing veterinary surgeons to undertake effective clinical audit without significantly impacting on working practices. This will help members comply with their obligations under the RCVS practice standards scheme.
