star this property answer text <p>The Global Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) Innovation Fund is a £50 million investment over five years to tackle AMR, with the aim of attracting significant additional investment internationally to stimulate global research. It is not looking at reimbursement models to incentivise the development of new classes of antibiotics or planning to fund pilots at this stage.</p><p>Domestically, the Department is working with the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence and the Association of the British Pharmaceutical Industry to develop a new reimbursement model for antimicrobials, and has secured broad agreement to principles that would permit a model to ‘de-link’ company revenues from sales. The aim of this work is to support good antimicrobial stewardship. Discussions with a number of leading pharmaceutical companies have highlighted challenges in evaluating antimicrobial medicines, and the Department is working closely with industry partners to address these.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>There is currently provision for recording resistant infections on death certificates. For example, guidance on recording deaths from MRSA was issued in 2005 by the then Chief Medical Officer. However, it is often the case that by the time someone dies they may have a number of diseases and complications of illness or treatment. It is, therefore, a matter of clinical judgment to decide whether a condition present at or just before death was a primary or secondary cause of a patient’s death.</p><p> </p><p>The World Health Organization is currently working on a revision (ICD 11) of its diagnostic coding system ICD 10. This is due in 2018 and will have a more comprehensive coverage of types of antimicrobial resistance.</p> more like this
