What is TARGET?

Treat Antibiotics Responsibly, Guidance, Education, Tools

This TARGET Antibiotics toolkit is a central resource for clinicians, their patients and commissioners to promote  safe, effective, appropriate and responsible antibiotic prescribing, helping to fulfil CPD and revalidation requirements.

Who is it for, and how can it be used?

The TARGET Antibiotics presentation and toolkit are designed to be introduced to the whole primary care team as a one hour workshop within the GP practice or out of hours setting. The workshop may be given by GPs, microbiologists or medicine managers and comes with explanatory notes. The tools can be used by all primary care staff.
