The RCGP TARGET [Treat Antibiotics Responsibly, Guidance, Education & Tools ] Antibiotic Toolkit has been refreshed and updated in recent months.
The updated toolkit now includes a comprehensive guide to the available resources with advice and tips on using them in practice.
Among the refreshed resources are:
- new versions of the Treating Your Infection – Respiratory Tract Infection (TYI-RTI) leaflets, to support discussions about the natural history of RTIs and appropriate self-care, and provide written safety netting advice. The refreshed leaflets are supported by a user guide plus instructions for incorporating into and using in GP clinical systems.
- updated resources to support appropriate management of urinary tract infections, including amended Treating Your Infection – Urinary Tract Infection (TYI-UTI) leaflets and UTI leaflets for older adults, with a user guide plus instructions for use in GP clinical systems.
The various TYI leaflets are available in simplified pictorial form and in a range of languages.
Healthcare Professionals can sign up to receive quarterly newsletters and to be notified of changes and updates to the TARGET Toolkit HERE.
