Sundhedsprofessionelles praktikker ved forebyggelse af multiresistente infektioner – et kritisk blik på nutiden med reflektioner over fremtiden

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) has come to prominence as a priority for policy makers and healthcare professionals. There are many well-described guidelines on how healthcare professionals should handle AMR. However, professional practices are sometimes different from what the guidelines prescribe. Based on a non-scientific case, the article explores and discusses healthcare professionals’ practices in preventing multi-resistant infections. The article shows how the boundary between ‘dangerous’ and ‘harmless’ circumstances takes place, how the understanding of ‘dangerous’ is contextual, and how the transfer of responsibility shifts from healthcare professionals to relatives. In conclusion, the article reflects on possible future scenarios in relation to the management of AMR, and the article argues that healthcare professionals must take responsibility on behalf of patients and relatives.
