Impact of social media education on antimicrobial stewardship awareness among pharmacy, medical and nursing students and residents

  17 June 2023

Antimicrobial resistance has always been an important issue as antimicrobial therapies are becoming less effective due to incorrect use and overuse. Our objective was to evaluate the impact of social media education on spreading antimicrobial stewardship awareness among healthcare students and residents.

This intervention demonstrated the importance of social media as a valuable tool to enhance antimicrobial stewardship knowledge among pharmacy, medical and nursing students and residents. Future studies are needed to examine the impact of social media education on behaviors in practice.
