The Health Protection Agency’s Dr Cliodna McNulty today presented the e-bug! programme to a meeting at the Science Museum in London. The teaching pack is being launched to coincide with the first European Antibiotic Awareness Day Conference hosted by the Advisory Commitee for Antimicrobial Resistance and Healthcare-associated infection (ARHAI).
The HPA’s new e-Bug! teaching resource uses interactive games and lesson handouts to explain the need for prudent antibiotic use and will be made available to schools across the UK and the rest of Europe from 2009. The programme has already recieved some positive media coverage from the BBC.
