Manage patient expectations for antibiotics with our Virus Action Plans for adults and children over 6 months old. These concise, editable information sheets help to reinforce when symptomatic and supportive care is the best medicine.
Individualise the advice by adding the patient's name in the space provided, and ticking the checkboxes as appropriate. You can either write on a pre-printed plan, or complete one online, and download and print it for your patient.
Intended for use once the possibility of a bacterial infection or other illness (eg, otitis media, pertussis, COVID-19) has been ruled out, the plans acknowledge that a person is unwell, reinforce the clinician’s decision that antibiotics are not required, and provide options for self-management.
