Did you know that Australians are amongst the highest users of antibiotics in the developed world? This week the RCPA has proudly been supporting the NPS MedicineWise during its annual Antibiotic Awareness Week.
According to NPS MedicineWise, around 19 million prescriptions are issued every year in Australia. Antibiotic Awareness Week aims to increase awareness around the importance of protecting antibiotic effectiveness against bacterial infections.
Professor Yee Khong, spokesperson for the RCPA, says that there is a crucial need for an increase in awareness surrounding the importance of the protection of antibiotic effectiveness against bacterial infections.
“Antibiotics are one of the most vital weapons in fighting bacterial infections, however there is a continuing problem with the overuse and misuse of antibiotics. This is ultimately leading to antibiotic resistance. It is critical that people are sufficiently educated about antibiotic resistance and how to use these medicines appropriately,” says Khong.
