Project: Antimicrobial Resistance in Intensive Care

Acronym AMRIC (Reference Number: JPIAMR_2018_N022)
Duration 01/01/2019 - 31/05/2021
Project Topic The AMRIC (Antimicrobial Resistance in Intensive Care) network will use the InFACT infrastructure and collaboration network to spearhead a global acute care initiative for research on antimicrobial resistance. InFACT was established by independent investigator-led clinical research groups and academic research consortia to provide a mechanism to build international collaboration, address common needs, and to raise the profile of investigator-driven acute care research with researchers, policymakers, funders and the public. InFACT currently consists of 35 member networks representing every continent and income grouping on the planet and sharing the common goal to advance science and build research capacity. InFACT member networks are the leading research networks in critical care, with embedded mentoring and knowledge exchange activities. AMRIC, using the InFACT model and its pre-existing collaborations, will scale-up a plan for data sharing on the sources, burden, modifiable risk factors, and impact of antimicrobial resistance in acute care settings around the world. Through a recently funded and established mapping platform (ACCESS-MAPS, co-investigator Wallace) and a large team of motivated investigators, AMRIC will implement a plan for clinical and microbiologic data sharing for determining the scale of the AMR problem in acute care settings globally. The AMRIC network has recently conducted scoping reviews on the subject through prior JPIAMR support; this proposal will allow further planning for the implementation of the findings and coordinating the scaling-up of prospective data collection.
