BEVA supports European Antibiotic Awareness Day with Free Webinars

The British Equine Veterinary Association (BEVA) is showing its support for European Antibiotic Awareness Day on 18th November 2017 by giving all equine vets free online access to its outstanding antimicrobial Congress session at www.ebeva.org/congress17-session12

BEVA is a consistent campaigner for the responsible use of antibiotics; Last year it introduced the BEVA Antibiotic Champion Award to encourage members to document their efforts to reduce the use of critically important antibiotics. In 2015 the Association received a national Antibiotic Guardian award from Public Health England and was the only organisation from the veterinary profession to be shortlisted. In 2012 BEVA launched the Protect ME antimicrobial campaign to facilitate compliance and educate the public about the importance of antimicrobial awareness.  

This year in recognition of European Antibiotic Awareness day (18th November) and also World Antibiotic Awareness Week (13th to 19th November, 2017) the free webinar, sponsored by HBLB, gives horse vets access to two informative lectures from the 2017 BEVA Congress: Antimicrobial resistance – One Health gets serious presented by Professor the Lord Trees and AntiProfessor Josh Slater Chair of BEVA’s Health & Medicines Committee said: “EAAD is an excellent time for the profession to reflect on its successes in improving antibiotic prescribing and also an opportunity to plan for future improvements in antimicrobial stewardship.

BEVA’s antibiotic champion award is a chance to recognise the massive contribution that equine vets have made in changing prescribing behaviours, in particular relating to critically important, or ‘protected’, antibiotics. The BEVA ProtectMe toolkit is freely available and has been proven to be an effective tool in support of this, but we are aware that practices may also have developed their own initiatives and hope to showcase these as part of the award scheme.”

The free webinars can be accessed at www.ebeva.org/congress17-session12
