Take a fresh look at your antibiotic prescription with mySAVSNET AMR!
Who is this for?
mySAVSNET AMR is aimed at all those working in veterinary practice in the UK. It allows any practices to send data to researchers at the University of Liverpool to receive a free benchmark, comparing their antibiotic prescription to other anonymised practices across the country. Participation in SAVSNET is not a prerequisite, nor is it only applicable to companion animal vets.
Data can be from an individual practitioner, a practice site or the whole practice group. Multiple data sets can also be sent to see how prescription changes over time.
All that matters is you have permission to access and send the data. The anonymised data will also be used by the researchers as part of ongoing research to understand antibiotic prescription and it’s variation across the UK.
mySAVSNET AMR is an initiative which was developed as a result of research looking at how antibiotics are used in veterinary practices taking part in SAVSNET. This paper was published in the Veterinary Journal and is available open access.
What will mySAVSNET AMR show me?
Veterinary surgeons and nurses participating will be able to see a breakdown of their own antibiotic prescription, and how it compares to their anonymised peers. As well as total use, prescriptions will be broken down at systemic, topical, HPCIA and class levels (eg beta-lactams, fluoroquinolone, macrolides), for both dogs and cats.
