The Antimicrobial Stewardship Open Virtual Learning Community (AS-OVLC) is a collaboration project by ESCMID, European Society of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases and ESGAP, ESCMID Study Group for Antibiotic Policies.

AS- OVLC is a platform created to foster antimicrobial stewardship among healthcare professionals. It provides resources (information & tools) and guidance with an educational focus. Although it was designed from an European perspective, global initiatives and collaborations have been considered. Its aims are to:

  • Provide a platform for showcasing, dissemination and highlighting good practice of antimicrobial use
  • Promote opinion exchanges and debate regarding antimicrobial use, policy and stewardship
  • Facilitate the co-ordination of pragmatic clinical practice surveys of stewardship activity
  • Make this tool available also for other ESCMID study groups
