Studies to Tackle Superbugs in Aged Care

Research into antibiotic-resistant bacteria or superbugs is being conducted in Australia to understand its manifestations. This initiative is deemed necessary and important due to the alarming increase of infection among aged care patients.

Two research projects on antimicrobial resistance are now being funded and researchers and medical professionals aim to provide strategies and a policy guide to reduce its spread.
