Country of origin: UK
Click for Full Details: www.rcgp.org.ukThe RCGP has launched a toolkit containing new guidance for GPs and their patients on the appropriate prescription of antibiotics. The guidance provides a simple, effective, and cost-effective approach to the treatment of common infections to minimise the emergence of bacterial resistance in the community.
It is launched as part of a TARGET toolkit (Treat Antibiotics Responsibly, Guidance and Education Tool) available on the RCGP website, and has been produced in partnership with the Health Protection Agency (HPA) and the Antimicrobial Stewardship in Primary Care Group (ASPIC).
The work is part of the RCGP’s Antimicrobial Stewardship clinical priority programme and the partnership working has helped to ensure a variety of health professionals have contributed to the resource including, microbiologists, clinicians, GPs, pharmacists, guidance developers and other stakeholders.
As well as antibiotics management guidance, the TARGET toolkit also comprises:
Clinical resources - including posters and links to useful web pages
Patient resources - including leaflets and a self-management form
Parent resources - a set of information leaflets for parents including the ‘When should I worry’ booklet
Audit report template for throat infection
