ESCMID Study Group for Antimicrobial Stewardship ESGAP
Job Title
Infectious Diseases Physician
Organisation summary

The link between antibiotic use and resistance is clear. Consequently, concerns about inappropriate antibiotic prescribing has never been greater. Reversal of resistance problems is often feasible by changing patterns of antibiotic use. Audits repeatedly show tremendous variations in standards for antibiotic prescription, but the common topic is one of unnecessary use. With these facts in mind, a group of like-minded researchers have formed the European Study Group for Antibiotic Policies. ESGAP has gained official recognition from the ESCMID Executive Committee and elected its first executive officers at the 9th ECCMID, 1999, Berlin, Germany.

The group has since then promoted education and research activities on the topic of antimicrobial stewardship, and aims at sharing knowledge and experiences on its open virtual learning community platform.
