    The National Centre for Antimicrobial Stewardship (NCAS) is a health services research program that aims to generate evidence on antimicrobial use and stewardship, influence national policy to promote judicious use of antimicrobials across human and animal health, and improve knowledge and build workforce capacity among all stakeholders. NCAS’ research streams include: tertiary hospitals, rural and regional hospitals, aged care homes, general practice, and veterinary and agricultural medicine.

    The National Antimicrobial Prescribing Survey (NAPS) is a standardised auditing tool that is designed to assist healthcare facilities to assess the quantity and quality of local antimicrobial prescribing. There are several modules available: the Hospital NAPS, Surgical NAPS and Quality Improvement NAPS for hospitals; and the Aged Care NAPS for residential age care homes. A General Practice NAPS and Hospital-in-the-Home NAPS have been piloted, and a Veterinary NAPS is in development.

    CO-ADD is a not-for-profit initiative led by academics at The University of Queensland. Our goal is to screen compounds for antimicrobial activity for academic research groups for free. Compounds are tested against five key bacterial pathogens and two fungi. Researchers with positive results can publish or patent their findings, and can get further advice on compound development. We aim to help researchers worldwide to find new, diverse compounds to combat drug-resistant infections.
