  • Description:
    Given ongoing governmental cost constraints, CDC, like all government agencies, must continually reassess how to best expend limited resources for maximal benefit. This is particularly true in the struggle to prevent and control antibiotic resistance. On December 6 and 7, 2011, CDC convened an invited panel of internationally recognized experts in clinical medicine, veterinary medicine, microbiology, public health and health policy to provide a diverse set of opinions regarding current and proposed national and international public health efforts for reducing the disease burden of infections caused by antimicrobial resistant microorganisms. Documents describing the charge to the expert consultants and the structure and function of the workshop can be found in Appendix 1. A list of participants, both invited consultants and CDC staff can be found in Appendix 2. During a series of breakout group discussions, consultants were asked to provide their individual assessment of the relative priority of a list of CDC activities drawn from the document A Public Health Action Plan to Combat Antimicrobial Resistance. (See Appendix 3 for an overview of the results of this process.) In addition, consultants were asked to suggest additional activities to add to those already listed. (See Appendix 4 for a summary of these project ideas.)
