New and existing NAMRIP members were welcomed to the latest Theme 4 'AMR-Bridging the Gap' workshop. This theme is focussed around behaviour change within and beyond the health care setting. As well as three presentations, members enjoyed lunch while taking the opportunity to network with members from different disciplines.     

The first presentation was by members of Emma Roe's pump priming project team - Paul Hurley, Charlotte Veal and Robert Zmijan. Their project 'Preventing the spread of infection in hospital care settings' is using imaging tracking technology to map the spread of microbes during routine tasks carried out by nursing staff. The team presented initial findings and some of the challenges involved. In the next stage of the project a video will be produced to help nurses visualise the effect of hand washing. Plenty of questions and discussion followed.
