Patient acceptability of delayed antibiotic prescriptions

Vari Drennan Professor, Healthcare and policy research, St George’s University of London and Kingston University, London

Bacteria resistance to antibiotics is increasing. This qualitative study explored patient perceptions of respiratory tract infections (RTIs) and the acceptability of delayed antibiotic prescriptions and self-help treatments. A total of 20 patients with RTIs were interviewed as part of a randomised control trial of delayed prescribing and self-treatments.
