The antimicrobial use is still a common practice in farm and companion animals, notwithstanding the efforts towards an overall reduction and the promotion of a responsible use. Antimicrobial use generally increases the risk of resistance formation and the interconnections of animal and human use may increase the risk for human health. Alternatives to these drugs are increasing, but still not routinely available. The veterinary medicine has to deal with the ever increasing requirements of reduction of antimicrobial use especially in farm animals, the lack of effective therapy alternatives and a more evidence based guidance in antimicrobial therapies. These aspects and many others, such as, pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, PK/PD modelling, antimicrobial resistance, residues, analytical methods, clinical trials, environmental impact, etc. will stay in the forefront of the topics of the AAVM programs. A strong interaction will be encouraged to promote discussion and participation on these topics between the speakers and attendees.
