High-impact, low-cost educational solutions with a global overview are the way forward for antimicrobial resistance and stewardship. My colleagues at the British Society for Antimicrobial Chemotherapy and I have set up the world’s first massively open online course (MOOC) on antibiotic stewardship in hospitals – although of course we include many generic methods applicable to other healthcare settings and even the community at large. The course is free at the point of access, and since we started running it, we’ve had nearly 32,000 students enrolled. Their enthusiasm has been quite staggering!
