Antibiotic Wisely encourages providers and paitents to reduce the use of unnecessary antibiotics. The use of antibiotics is a major contributor to antibiotic resistance and is threatening our ability to reat common infectious diseases.
Featuring tools and resources for both providers and patients, Antibiotic Wisely was very well received by our community.
We worked with our Choosing Wisely regional affiliates in the provinces and territories to tailor the tools and resources to their local needs. In Ontario, we partnered with Public Health Ontario (PHO) to cost-share the mail-out of patient posters to 13,000 family physicians across the province.
