  6. Why e-Bug? DH SMAC Committee 1998: Teaching about antibiotics should be included as part of the National Curriculum

  7. Antibiotics work on most coughs & colds Antibiotics can kill bacteria Antibiotics can kill viruses Antibiotics can kill bacteria that normally live on the skin and gut Bacteria that normally live on the skin and in the gut are good for you Many do not understand antibiotics And 16-24 year olds are less knowledgeable

  8. Total antibiotic use in European countries 2003 Ferech, M. et al. JAC 2006 58:401-407

  9. Antibiotic use: outpatient penicillin usage correlated with penicillin resistance, Europe, 2005 Source: Goossens et al. 2005

  10. Antibiotic use: evolution of penicillin resistance of Staphylococcus aureus

  11. The five key areas for containment of antimicrobial resistance

  12. Reducing infection rates should reduce antibiotic use in children! Spread of infection is mainly via sneezing/coughing and contaminated hands Handwashing interventions reduce illnesses and absenteeism in schools

  13. The aims of e-Bug activities • Increase understanding of microbes • Improve personal hygiene • Teach: • Prevention better than cure • Benefits of antibiotics • Overuse of antibiotics may have adverse effect

  14. Developing e-Bug style & content Brainstorming sessions with teachers & partners: • Suit range of teaching styles • Have IT links • Be student friendly • MUST link closely to National Curriculums

  15. Amy and Harry ‘Girly look’ Hair styles Clothing Development of Junior and Senior Characters

  17. e-Bug LessonPlan Junior school

  18. Junior Microbe activity

  19. Respiratory Hygiene activity Holding a tissue in front of your nose spreads less germs Best part: sneezing because you get to use the snot gun

  20. What we learnt: Best part: Reading the comic Not to use someone elses antibiotics All antibiotics are different Junior antibiotic activity It really hurts and I think I’m getting a cough. Don’t you have any antibiotics at home you can take?

  21. e-Bug LessonPlan Senior school

  22. Senior antibiotic activity That’s amazing – this bug’s killed by all of them

  23. Seeing the microbes was really cool It was a different type of lesson It was really hard to keep the bacteria off the salad I never knew bacteria were alive Always wash hands when dealing with food Germs can spread very easily Food hygiene activity

  24. There are loads of bacteria on your body I learnt to wash your hands all the time I learnt how to stop microbes spreading Hand hygiene activity

  25. All pack content Teacher presentations to aid lesson plans Games for classroom or home play Revision sections for students Development of Websitewww.e-Bug.eu

  29. e-Bug in theCzechRepublic Implementation Review - adaptation to the CR school system Translation - pack and website(available Sept. 09) Promotion - Teachers fairs and science fairs (2008 - 2010). − Links in packs to related websites and vice versa. − Information letter to all primary and secondaryschools (August ’09). − Teachers magazines and websites − Science teachers networks Endorsement- Project supported by Ministries of Health and Education and Johnson&Johnson Printing–All Czech primary and secondary schoolsreceive a free printed copy (4,000 primary and 3,600 secondary schools)

  30. Conclusion Distribution of over 13.000 free copies in Belgium + Further promotion of e-bug website = Maximum possible coverage of over 1.5 million students (15% of total population)
