Behavioural and social sciencesThis theme is focussed on improving our understanding of the behaviours in both primary and hospital care settings which can drive antibiotic resistance. Changes in behaviour that can avert threats associated with inadequate antimicrobial stewardship are being researched, communicated and implemented in the Imperial Healthcare NHS Trust and beyond. These behavioural interventions will include short, medium and long-term strategies to improve the quality of antimicrobial prescribing which will have practical application for the benefit of patients resulting from improved health care.
