"Superbugs": Antimicrobial Resistance - Minnesota Dept. of Health

Antimicrobial Resistance


Be antibiotics aware

Resistance anywhere is resistance everywhere.
Antibiotic overuse increases the development
of drug-resistant germs and
limits treatment options for infections.
You have a role in preventing antibiotic resistance.

Antibiotics aren't always the answer. Everyone can help improve antibiotic prescribing and use.

Antibiotic Resistance Information for Health Professionals

The way we use antibiotics today
or in one patient
directly impacts how effective they will be tomorrow
or in another patient;
antibiotics are a shared resource.
Preserving effective antibiotic treatments requires all of us to do our part.

Always remember to prescribe the right antibiotic, at the right dose, for the right duration, and at the right time.
