The improper use has culminated in the development of resistant microbes which leads to widespread outbreaks of bacterial infections poor prognosis and increased health cost among other consequences. This study seeks to conduct an audit on the current trend of antibiotic use in the primary health care setting using respiratory tract infections as the backbone of the research. The study seeks to determine the trend by finding out the compliance level to NICE (National Institute for Health and Care Excellence) and PHE (Public Health England) guidelines on the prescription in the treatment of respiratory tract infections.

Order Description:

I have been given the topic of an antibiotic prescribing audit in primary care, mainly in GP surgeries. I want to focus it on the prescribing of antibiotics in respiratory tract infections. The proposal would involve following the guidelines set in the attachments, designing the audit, critical literature appraisal and discovering the desired intentions and outcomes of an audit. Note that this MUST be based on UK guidelines e.g. National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE), Royal Pharmaceutical Society.
