Sociocultural factors have been hypothesized as important drivers of inappropriate antibiotic prescribing in European ambulatory care. This study sought to assess whether they can also explain the rep...
Little is known about undergraduate education on antibiotic prescribing in Europe and even less about the antibiotic prescribing skills of nearly graduated medical students.
Rising rates of antimicrobial resistance are driven by overuse of antibiotics. Characterizing physician antibiotic prescribing variability can inform interventions to optimize antibiotic use.
Inappropriate antibiotic prescribing is still a major concern that can lead to devastating outcomes including antibiotic resistance. This study aimed to simulate the antibiotic prescribing behaviour b...
Little is known about antibiotic prescribing differences between academic and community outpatient settings. This retrospective, cross-sectional chart review compares compliance with Infectious Diseas...
This PAR (participatory action research) study to improve antibiotic prescribing quality in a GPC (general practitioner cooperative) during OOH-care (out-of-hours-care) uses a mixed method...
This trial aims to reduce unnecessary prescription of antibiotics by general practitioners (GPs) in England. Unnecessary prescriptions are defined as those that do not improve patient heal...
Antibiotic overuse occurs in multiple jurisdictions and is associated with rising rates of antimicrobial resistance. Mailing letters to the highest antibiotic prescribing physicians is a p...
Respiratory tract infections are the most common indication for antibiotic prescribing in primary care. Several studies have shown a strong relationship between antibiotic use and bacteria...
Antibiotic resistance has become a major threat to global public health. It is driven by a multitude of factors, however one of the leading factors is antibiotic prescribing. Inappropriate...
The practice of prescribing medications in a manner that poses more risk than benefit, particularly where safer alternatives exist.
A list, criteria, or screening tool designed to improve PATIENT SAFETY by determining an individual's exposure to potentially inappropriate drugs. They are designed to prevent MEDICATION ERRORS by INAPPROPRIATE PRESCRIBING. Analysis for a list includes factors such as DOSE-RESPONSE RELATIONSHIP, DRUG; DRUG-RELATED SIDE EFFECTS AND ADVERSE REACTIONS; AGE FACTORS; GENDER; and existing medical conditions.
A class of plasmids that transfer antibiotic resistance from one bacterium to another by conjugation.
The analysis of a critical number of sensory stimuli or facts (the pattern) by physiological processes such as vision (PATTERN RECOGNITION, VISUAL), touch, or hearing.
The relating of causes to the effects they produce. Causes are termed necessary when they must always precede an effect and sufficient when they initiate or produce an effect. Any of several factors may be associated with the potential disease causation or outcome, including predisposing factors, enabling factors, precipitating factors, reinforcing factors, and risk factors.
