11:45 Evaluation of the feasibility of using point-of-care C-reactive protein to optimise primary care prescribing for respiratory tract infections in Scotland
The Scottish Antimicrobial Prescribing Group has developed several initiatives to promote reduction of unnecessary antibiotic use for respiratory tract infections. This study was developed to evaluate the feasibility of using CRP testing, as recommended by NICE, as an additional tool to reduce unnecessary use. Data collected during consultations and GP feedback will be presented to illustrate the practical aspects of how the test was used in Scottish practice and its perceived impact on GP decision making and prescribing of antibiotics.
