Online training achieves important reductions in primary-care antibiotic prescribing

GRACE is a Network of Excellence funded by the European Commission focusing on the complex and controversial field of community-acquired lower respiratory tract infections. This initiative, which counts with the support of IDIBAPS and Hospital Clínic of Barcelona, combats antimicrobial resistance through integrating centers of research excellence. The IDIBAPS team Applied research in infectious respiratory diseases, critically ill patients and lung cancer, led by Prof. Antoni Torres, participated in a work published by The Lancet showing that internet training achieved important reductions in antibiotic prescribing for respiratory-tract infections across language and cultural boundaries. More information leads to better treatment decisions.
