Missed World Antibiotic Awareness week (18-24 Nov)? Check out these links!

Did you know that co-amoxiclav should not be used first line in the community other than for animal or human bite, facial cellulitis, post partum endometritis, caesarean wound infections or perineal wound infection?

Check out the HSE green/red table link below for antibiotic prescribing in the community. Print and stick it on the wall!

Great practical info for prescribers , pharmacists and nurses can be found on www.antibioticprescribing.ie

You’ll find some really useful info for patients in nursing homes /residential settings too (great for an IIOP CPD cycle!)
