A Healthier Scotland: Visualising the Invisible Film
The latest film from the AHRC shines a light on a dynamic research collaboration that helps healthcare staff prevent and control healthcare associated infections such as the life threatening Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA).
The project, called Visualising the Invisible, is jointly funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) and the Scottish Funding Council (SFC).
With Norovirus, MRSA and C. Difficile continuing to be a risk to patient recovery, and with ever- increasing resistance to antibiotics, this new collaboration, which brings researchers from all over Scotland together with National Health Service (NHS) staff, has been formed to examine how staff think about these invisible threats, and to look at ways to make them more visible.
This film offers an insight to the project including interviews and explanations from both academics, and NHS staff.
The project is funded under the AHRC / SFC Knowledge Exchange Programme, ‘A healthier Scotland’. The exciting programme consists of six knowledge exchange projects in the field of health and the environment. Collectively and individually the projects contribute strategically to the Scottish Government’s national objective for a Healthier Scotland.
