Health alliance for prudent prescribing, yield and use of antimicrobial drugs in the treatment of respiratory tract infections

Objective

The aim of the project is to strengthen the surveillance of respiratory tract infections in primary health care in Europe through development of intervention programmes targeting general practitioners (GPs), parents of young children and healthy adults. The team will study the incidence of respiratory tract infec-tions among patients in general practice and carry out research based on audit registration to explore the existing use of diagnostic tools in patients with respiratory tract infections. Based on results from audit registrations in primary health care, the team will develop locally adapted intervention programmes, including guidelines, courses for GPs, workshops and patient information leaf-lets for improving the quality of antibiotic prescription. The overall aim of the intervention programme is to reduce the occurrence of bacterial resistance by re-ducing prescribing of unnecessary antibiotics for respiratory tract infections and by improving the use of appropriate antibiotics in suspected bacteri
