The Canadian Veterinary Medical Association (CVMA) and the Stewardship of Antimicrobials by Veterinarians Initiative (SAVI) are excited to announce the launch of the Firstline App. The app serves as a user-friendly platform for the CVMA Veterinary Guidelines for Antimicrobial Use, supplying veterinary treatment recommendations and other reference information at point-of-care.
In this webinar series, Dr. Weese, Dr. Moore, and Dr. Gillies will walk through a 15-minute demonstration of how the Firstline app works, outline how the AMU Guidelines were developed, and solicit input from webinar participants on what the next version of the App could include.
The conceptualization, content review, and technical funding in support of the Firstline initiative was provided by the Major Innovation Fund (MIF) program of the Ministry of Jobs, Economy and Innovation (JEI), Government of Alberta, allowing the creation of the AMR - One Health Consortium and with partially matched funding from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR).
Veterinary subject matter expertise in support of the Firstline initiative was provided by the Stewardship of Antimicrobials for Veterinarians Initiative (SAVI), led by the Canadian Veterinary Medical Association (CVMA) and funded in part by Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) via the Canadian Agricultural Partnership (CAP) program and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA).
