Checklist for prescribers in hospitals and other healthcare settings

information material toolkit material

The checklist was conceived as a small card that can be kept in white coat pockets and consulted as a reminder of prudent antibiotic prescribing. Its objective is to provide practical support to prescribers on the considerations of antibiotic prescribing and the questions they need to ask themselves before, during and after making the decision to administer antibiotic treatments to patients. Other possibilities to use this tool include: A4 printouts to be included in patient charts or a poster to be placed in different parts of the hospital.
