European Antibiotic Awareness day – November 18
European Antibiotic Awareness day is organized annually to increase general awareness on responsible antibiotic use. It is an EU funded campaign and the campaign web pages contain information e.g. about the antibiotic consumption in different European countries. Practices on the use of antibiotics vary a lot worldwide and testing before prescribing is not the common practice everywhere. However, there is much evidence on how e.g. CRP testing could help to diminish the unnecessary use of antibiotics. In many cases the decision on antibiotic use is made outside hospitals. The QuikRead go CRP and QuikRead CRP products are easy to use and fast tests which can be used also in primary health care settings. They help the doctor to make the decision on whether to prescribe antibiotics or not.
