The Antibiotic Resistance Debate Kit discusses whether the NHS should tell GPs to give back-up prescriptions instead of immediate antibiotics wherever possible.
The kit was funded by e-Bug (a project operated by Public Health England) and Science Foundation Ireland. Its main distribution took part between October 2014 and January 2015, and we have evaluated it between September and November 2015. After the evaluation, we’ve learnt:
- 70% of teachers who use a debate kit once, keep using it year after year.
- 100% of the teachers said that their students are now aware of the issues surrounding the bad use of antibiotics.
- We estimate that at least 526 kits have been already used by teachers.
