Engaging Stakeholders to Optimise AMR Innovation
Prof Alex Broom

… aims to integrate the spectrum of social science, health economics, mathematical modelling, and epidemiology techniques and methodologies to examine the problem of AMR and the development and roll-out of AMR-related technologies and ‘solutions’ in diverse settings in Australia and the Asia Pacific region. Consulting with a diverse range of stakeholders, including the public, government, services, industry, and communities this Theme will work toward a more comprehensive understanding of the multifarious factors shaping AMR and AMR innovations, with a focus on STIs.
The remit of this Theme is to develop:
- Advanced social science analysis of the drivers of AMR and current barriers to AMR innovation;
- Epidemiological analyses of AMR and STIs;
- Innovative mixed methods evaluations of the performance of resistance therapy laboratory tests;
- Mixed methods evaluations of point of care resistance guided therapy tests in Australia and Asia-Pacific.
- Advanced Delphi Methods for progressing AMR and STI innovations through consensus;
- Health economic evaluations of AMR;
- Mathematical modelling for mitigating the emergence and spread of AMR in the context of STIs.
