blog for @drnjfawcett, Researcher with the Crook/Peto Group at the Nuffield Dept. of Medicine in Oxford, MRC Clinical Research Fellow, trainee in Acute/General Medicine. Fundamentally still a Medical Registrar taking a ride in the world of Microbiology and Genomics as a very interesting and powerful means to an end. Hopefully learning (slowly). Interests- Antibiotic use and the Microbiome (What good am I doing my patient when I give them antibiotics? And what harm? ), how drug resistant infections (and inextricably, how drug resistant bacteria full stop) spread and how to change behaviour and communicate what is going on with clinicians, and with the world. The views in this blog are my own and do not represent those of my employers/funders. The main purpose of this blog is to communicate about Medicine, Microbiology and Antimicrobial Resistance in a way that is useful, interesting and understandable.
