Abstract

The goal of this project is to target the issue of lack of education and awareness in regards to antimicrobial resistance. Current messaging tactics and educational materials were analyzed in order to find what methods have been ineffective, as well as effective. Much of the messaging that was analyzed was in the form of infographics. After the analysis of these infographics was done, new infographics were made to essentially rebrand the message and target the general antibiotic user about the issue as well as educate them about proper use.
