Online tool reports on aged care antibiotic use

Tracking antibiotic prescribing for UTIs in aged care homes is set to become easier with the launch of an online reporting tool.

Under the scheme, developed by NPS MedicineWise, doctors and nursing staff working in residential homes will be able to ask their local pharmacists to run reports on their antibiotic use for UTIs in a bid to curb inappropriate antibiotic prescribing.
