Antibiotic resistance and complexity in health education

We develop research-based, multidisciplinary learning content and skills to handle antimicrobial resistance (AMR), one of the major global threats to sustainable development in healthcare.

About the group

SHE has established the unit AntiMicrobials in Complex Systems (AMiCS) with the aim of creating an international network of students and teachers working on AMR and developing digital learning resources. AMiCS will contribute to address the urgent need to strengthen researched-based education on AMR and to develop ethical and effective frameworks to intervene through policy and practice.

We will seek to build new interdisciplinary knowledge through the building and application of system thinking. Our focus will be on how digital interventions are becoming inextricably intertwined in addressing AMR, affecting processes of health services access and utilization, and the evolution, spread and treatment of drug-resistant infections.

AMiCS is led by Prof. Sundeep Sahay.

Main objectives

AMiCS has the following main objectives:

  • Develop novel interdisciplinary theories and methods to build and apply systems thinking to complex global health problems with a key focus on antimicrobial resistance.
  • Develop supplementary master’s course modules that build upon the developments under objective 1.
  • Provide a platform for networking of different research and education initiatives taking place in Norway on similar issues.
