Communication toolkit on antibiotic use: How to use social media to promote prudent antibiotic use

Tool Communication toolkit

This guidance document is based on research of social media activity related to antibiotic use at EU level, as well as on a survey of the social media activities of EAAD partner organisations, mostly EU umbrella organisations of patients and health professionals. Following the research and the survey, we have proposed social media activities that could be undertaken as part of national prudent antibiotic use campaigns. The proposed activities are presented in three sections that are targeting the general public, primary care prescribers and hospital prescribers.
