This CPD activity consists of 5 multiple-choice questions (MCQs) designed to test your knowledge on responsible use of antimicrobials in primary care—you will then be prompted to reflect on your learning.
The questions, written by Charlotte Eley and Professor Cliodna McNulty, relate to their expert article, Educating patients on antimicrobial use is key to combating resistance, which covers the NICE antimicrobial resistance guideline on changing risk-related behaviours in the general population.
On completion of this activity, you should be able to:
- inform patients about when antibiotics are effective
- apply antimicrobial stewardship principles to your practice
- implement strategies to control antimicrobial prescribing
- react appropriately to requests or demands for antibiotics.
