Enhanced Verifiable CPD from the
University of Birmingham

Antibiotic prescribing

Over-prescription of antimicrobials is creating resistant organisms. It is estimated that, in the UK alone, 50,000 people a year acquire an antibiotic-resistant infection, and 2,000 die from it.

UK dentists prescribe 8% of all antibiotics in this country. But 80% of antibiotics world-wide actually go to farm animals as a feed additive - it makes them produce more meat.

By only using antibiotics when essential, health-care professionals can lead by example, and hopefully make a change that can genuinely help the planet.

This course takes you through the do's and don'ts of antibiotic prescribing using the evidence to justify the advice given.
