Celebrating audiocast 100th episode

In celebration of our audiocast’s milestone 100th episode, Episode 100, with its Keynotes and Resources, is open to ODHA members and non-members.

Episode 100 – Antimicrobial Resistance

Episode 100 of Conversations with Dr. Glogauer and Kim Ivan on antimicrobial resistance is now available. Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) threatens the effective prevention and treatment of an ever-expanding range of infections and increases risk of disease spread, severe illness, and death. AMR contributes to almost 5 million deaths from bacterial infections alone each year. Without intervention, AMR could result in up to 10 million deaths a year globally by 2050.

Join Dr. Glogauer and Kim Ivan for discussion on this global health crisis. Topics include:

  • Drivers of AMR, including dental prescriptions, clients, and COVID-19;
  • Chlorhexidine, triclosan, and vaccines;
  • oral MRSA and antibiotic-resistant periodontal pathogens; and
  • opportunities for the oral health team to reduce AMR.

Keynotes and over 65 additional resources are provided to enhance learning, including several client resources.
