Will my children survive antimicrobial resistance?

In the wake of the World Health Organization's recent publication of a global priority list of antibiotic-resistant bacteria the increasing risk of antibiotic resistance has become even more apparent. In the following blog post Sheldon Stone highlights the need for better reporting, using the ORION guidelines, for outbreak reports of nosocomial infection. There is clearly a need for as much high quality data as possible about these infections and the ORION guidelines provide a valuable tool for researchers hoping to maximize the impact of their research.
