SAPG publications on Ghana health partnership

2020 has been a busy year for SAPG. As well as supporting clinical teams in Scotland with advice on antibiotic use during the COVID-19 pandemic, the team have written up work undertaken with Ghanaian colleagues as part of the recent SAPG Global Health partnership.

The partnership were invited to write an article providing an overview of the project which focused on implementing the Scottish model for stewardship in Ghana: 

Developing a Sustainable Antimicrobial Stewardship (AMS) Programme in Ghana: Replicating the Scottish Triad Model of Information, Education and Quality Improvement 

The partnership has also recently published two papers on specific elements of the project:

Supporting global antimicrobial stewardship: antibiotic prophylaxis for the prevention of surgical site infection in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs): a scoping review and meta-analysis

Supporting antimicrobial stewardship in Ghana: Evaluation of the impact of training on knowledge and attitudes of healthcare professionals in two hospitals

Earlier this year the team published a paper on preliminary work:

Antimicrobial point prevalence surveys in two Ghanaian hospitals: opportunities for antimicrobial stewardship, JAC-Antimicrobial Resistance, Volume 2, Issue 1, March 2020
