The development of antibiotic-resistant bacteria is associated with increases in mortality, morbidity, length of hospitalization, and health-care costs (6). While the medical community and the general public are becoming increasingly aware of this association, widespread strategies are needed to prevent the spread of antimicrobial-resistant organisms. This article discusses the proceedings from a roundtable convened in Washington, D.C. to develop a collaborative dialogue among human and animal health communities on antibiotic resistance. A summary of the proceedings includes key recommendations for stakeholders to institute strategies for preventing the spread of antimicrobial-resistant organisms.
