Project: Bridging of Amicrobial resistance Surveillance systems In Community Settings across Europe

Acronym BASICS (Reference Number: JPIAMR_NC_2022-020)
Project Topic Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) surveillance in Europe is based on invasive isolates reported for inpatients. The importance of AMR in primary care remains unclear in EU as it is scarcely documented. The aim of Network “BASICS” would be to map existing initiatives and identify needs for AMR Surveillance in Community Settings in Europe. Main aims of the network will be to: (i) Describe current national structure of clinical microbiology services for primary care, (ii) Identify existing networks on AMR surveillance in community care, (iii) Define a consensual list of indicators to be monitored, (iv) Assess the interoperability of AMR surveillance data produced across European countries, (v) Explore the strategies for the report on AMR indicators at the national and international scales. The BASICS-EU network activities will rely on structured questionnaires and semi-structured interviews, and the sharing of results and experiences through physical and online workshops involving partners from each participating countries. The ultimate expected output would be to promote the convergence of national data of AMR surveillance in the community toward an existing or a future European platform. The results from this work will be communicated in a final report transmitted to international and national agencies. It is expected that the results of this project will improve the knowledge of AMR epidemiology in community care, guide recommendations for an efficient antibiotic use, help to enhance control and prevention of AMR transmission, and ease benchmarking across European countries.
