Duration Approx. 60 minutes

We aim to generate thought-provoking discussions and shed light on the controversies and debates by tackling the important questions surrounding the antibiotics administration such as:

  • Identifying appropriate recipients.
  • Determining optimal timing.
  • Selecting suitable implementation settings.

Designed to engage healthcare professionals, urologists, researchers, and students, this e-course will provide a platform for insightful dialogue on the complexities of antibiotic prophylaxis in urological interventions. Through a critical analysis of available evidence and an exploration of the challenges and opportunities within this realm, participants will deepen their understanding of the "for who, when, and where" aspects of antibiotic prophylaxis in urology. Furthermore, we will emphasise the importance of reducing antibiotic usage to combat AMR, highlighting the potential strategies and solutions to tackle this global health concern.
