For healthcare professionals.

Seriously has been developed by working closely with communities and healthcare providers to create local resources that work alongside national resources to share key messages about antibiotic resistance and the appropriate use of antibiotics in creative and innovative ways. Our resources support the communication of key messages at specific stages of the patient journey, supporting you to have conversations with patients and educate them on alternative treatments.

What can we do?

To prevent and control the spread of antibiotic resistance, health professionals can:

  1. Prevent infections by ensuring your hands, instruments, and environment are clean.
  2. Only prescribe and dispense antibiotics when they are needed, according to current guidelines.
  3. Report antibiotic-resistant infections to surveillance teams.
  4. Talk to your patients about how to take antibiotics correctly, antibiotic resistance and the dangers of misuse.
  5. Talk to your patients about preventing infections, including vaccinations, hand washing, safer sex, and covering nose and mouth when sneezing.
