Resimpact, is an open access calculator based on a validated and transparent health economic model that allows the user to input their own epidemiological data of drug resistance by site of infection and to be presented with an array of measures to estimate the health and economic impact of resistant infections.

I would like to present this as part of the 3 minute research, to firstly introduce the website which is under development with the open-access calculator and describe its purpose briefly. Secondly, I would like to introduce the audience to the opportunity to either provide their own data estimates, or to think about working collaboratively in getting more robust estimates, in particular were Australian-based measures are missing within our model.
