On 28 January 2019, Public Health England (PHE) launched a new multilingual survey, funded by the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC), which aims to gain an understanding of European healthcare workers’ knowledge and perceptions about antibiotics and antibiotic resistance. Previous studies have primarily focused on the general public and medical students.

ECDC and PHE are aiming for a return of at least 10,000 responses from healthcare workers, including doctors, nurses, pharmacists and hospital managers, as well as clinical scientists, physiotherapists, nursing assistants, dental/pharmacy technicians, public health teams and health students.

The survey  is available in all EU/EEA languages and closes on 14 February 2019.
