If you are in Victoria, did you know that as of the 1st of May 2021 the Guidelines of the Veterinary Practitioners Registration Board of Victoria include guidelines for the Responsible supply and use of antibiotics under which professional conduct is demonstrated by:
|15.1||A veterinary practitioner maintains current knowledge of issues relating to antimicrobial resistance (AMR) by undertaking training or other continuous professional development at least every three years.|
|15.2||A veterinary practitioner supplies and uses antibiotics in a manner consistent with current Australian veterinary professional codes of practice and policies.|
|15.3||A veterinary practitioner has developed and/or has available, and complies with, a written protocol describing prudent and responsible use of antibiotics which directs their supply and use of antibiotics.|
|15.4||A veterinary practitioner responds in a timely and substantive manner to a formal request from the Board for information which demonstrates that their supply and use of antibiotics minimises AMR.|
|15.5||A veterinary practitioner does not supply, use or administer antibiotics without the prior establishment of a veterinary practitioner-owner-animal relationship.|
