UCALGARY-LED TEAM HELPS DEVELOP APP TO TACKLE ANTIMICROBIAL RESISTANCE
The road to fight one of humanity’s greatest health challenges from the palm of your hand has been a long and winding one. The University of Calgary is the starting point of a free access mobile app to help countries around the world fight antimicrobial resistance.
It took almost a decade of research and collaboration with teams from across the country, including McMaster University and internationally involving the World Health Organization (WHO). Dr. John Conly, MD, a professor and infectious disease specialist at the Cumming School of Medicine and Alberta Health Services (AHS), along with a team at UCalgary and AHS, has facilitated the development of an app to provide expert local knowledge so that physicians and veterinarians can make the best treatment decisions in an attempt to curb antibiotic resistance.
