ARPEC Educational Tool

ARPEC Educational Tool

The ARPEC Educational Tool was one of the specific deliverables of the ARPEC project, whose overall aim was the development of a web-based edcuational tool for paediatricians on the principles of prudent antibiotic prescribing containing country-specific prescribing and resistance data.

The resulting slide deck outlines the basics of rational and prudent antibiotic use for common childhood infections in ambulatory care, including introductory information on microorganisms, antibiotics, antibiotic resistance and prudent antibiotic use, as well as case studies of six common childhood infections presenting to ambulatory care providers.

This material was developed by the ARPEC Educational Tool Team, including Giangiacomo Nicolini, Julia Bielicki, Marta Romanengo, Francois Dubos and Rebecca Lundin.
