MRB screening

If you as a student need to do an MRB screening before your clinical placement, please contact your course coordinator for further information. You need a signed letter before you can do the screening which will be performed at Hälsan 2. It is a Primary health care center nearby the Campus.

The term multiresistant bacteria (MRB) refers to bacteria that have become resistant to multiple antibiotics that are normally effective in treating them (e.g. MRSA, ESBL, ESBL-CARBA, VRE).

All students who have done a work placement within healthcare and/or geriatric care while being on exchange have to undergo MRB Screening. The same applies to all students who have been hospitalised or treated at a polyclinic abroad within the last six months. The screening must be performed prior to the start of a work placement within healthcare and/or geriatric care.

All foreign exchange students who are going to do a work placement within healthcare and/or geriatric care during their exchange studies at the School of Health and Welfare also have to undergo MRB Screening. The screening must be performed prior to the work placement.
