Smartphone application for antibiotic prescribing

A report from the Royal Pharmaceutical Society

This report describes the development and implementation in Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust, one of nine showcase hospitals, and the National Centre for Infection Prevention and Management (CIPM) of a smartphone application for the trust’s antibiotic prescribing policy. The aim of the report is to help directors of infection prevention and control and other staff decide whether they should consider using smartphone technology as a cost-effective means of disseminating policy and guidelines to improve practice at the point of care.

An article about the scheme is in Nursing Standard 2012 1st Aug Vol 26(48) p18-9 (Take the right course by A. Moore) – available online via NHS ATHENS!
