Optimising antibiotic use
We have developed a range of interventions to support reduction of unnecessary use of antibiotics for self-limiting respiratory tract infections and improve management of urinary tract infections (UTIs).
CRP testing in primary care settings
Executive Summary Evaluation of C-reactive protein (CRP) testing in primary care settings to support reduction of antibiotic prescribing for self-limiting respiratory infections.
ScRAP educational toolkit
Launched in October 2013, the Scottish Reduction in Antimicrobial Prescribing (ScRAP) is an educational toolkit to help prescribers to reduce unnecessary prescribing of antibiotics.
Setting up Vision defaults
This guidance provides instructions on how to set up defaults within the Vision prescribing system to ensure antibiotic prescriptions comply with local guidelines
A leaflet for community pharmacists to provide written advice for patients seeking advice on common respiratory infections has been produced. Supplies of printed leaflets are available on request from email@example.com
