National Collaborating Centre for Infectious Diseases Presents……
“Multi Drug Resistance in Refugee Population: Lessons to Learn from Europe”

Wednesday, September 12, 2018 from 12:00PM - 1:00PM (CDT) 
 
Concept: The National Collaborating Centre for Infectious Diseases (NCCID) continues its series of public health podcasts and webinars on refugee health. This time our webinar will offer an overview to public health physicians and policy makers in Canada on the rising issue of multi-drug resistance in refugee populations in EU countries. Over the past decade, the Middle East and Southeastern Europe have witnessed an enormous influx of refugees due to the Syrian war and conflicts in Asia and Africa. Data indicate that refugees carry a significant burden of multi-drug resistant strains, which is attributed to the rising antimicrobial resistance rates in their countries of origin, both in healthcare settings and in the community. This webinar will present the available data on antimicrobial resistance in refugees and migrants and the public health implications in the frame of the current refugee crisis in Europe. In addition, issues of microbiological screening and infection control will also be addressed.
 
Participants will have a chance to discuss problems and practical issues in an interactive Q & A session following the presentation. Registrants are invited to submit questions of interest prior to the webinar to S.M. Zeeshan Qadar at sheikh.qadar@umanitoba.ca.
