92155 - Reducing Antibiotic Resistance: Managing specific RTIs Clinical Audit
- : Online
This Clinical e-Audit enables you to review your current practice, consider implementing changes to practice and reflect on areas for ongoing improvement. The feedback allows you to compare your best practice clinical indicators. This activity is intended to be relevant in all general practice settings and is based on the recommendations from the Therapeutic Guidelines released in November 2014.
Relevance to General Practice
Upper respiratory tract infections are common in general practice settings. A large number of antibiotic scripts are written for these infections where the cause is not clearly diagnosed. Due to the development of resistance to common antibiotics and the emergence of 'superbugs' in Australia and overseas, the updated Therapeutic Guidelines have reflect changes in
management of upper respiratory infections.
In this activity, general practitioners can reflect on their management of 10 patients with:
- acute bacterial rhinosinusitis
- acute sore throat/pharyngitis/tonsillitis
- acute otitis media
- common colds/acute viral rhinitis, or
- acute bronchitis.
