Improving Antibiotics Prescription Behaviour
A three step gamified program
Here we introduce a three-step program to counter the global escalation of Antimicrobial resistance (AMR). The program aims to promote the prudent, rational prescription and use of antibiotics in human healthcare. It’s aimed at medical professionals involved in prescribing antibiotics: GPs, medical microbiologists and other medical specialists, nursing home specialists and related health workers around the globe.
The program consists of three steps. The first is a mobile phone based survey tool which gages the level of awareness in the field. At regular intervals this survey will be updated and repeated to track the changing level of awareness. During step two a desktop based serious game will be employed to improve AMR awareness within the target groups. With step three a mobile based diagnosis tool will be launched that will offer the best antibiotics prescribing practices to medical professionals in the field.
