Hospital identified Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) prevalence among older women in Australia
This research aims to look at the prevalence, treatment and pathways of transfer of older women identified with a UTI and subsequent or concurrent antimicrobial resistance (AMR). We will have a particular interest in those women residing within the residential aged care facilities (RACF) to identify patterns of patient movement between hospitals and RACF and association with AMR prevalence levels. We aim to use the findings of this study to build a scalable agent based model that will enable identification of cost and health effective interventions such as reduction in prescribed antibiotics
