Resources for Commissioners

Here are a series of resource documents to aid commissioners with the implementation of the TARGET resources.

Guidance for commissioners and stakeholders

This pack contains detailed information about the background to the TARGET resources and how they can be used in primary care. It is intended as a guide for commissioners and stakeholders to use when implementing the TARGET resources in their region.

Trainers and commissioners background presentation with voice over for personal learning about using the TARGET materials for group or personal use.

TARGET workshop group presentation

This modifiable presentation lasts 40-60 minutes and includes slide notes and references. It can be used as the basis of a group workshop which can be delivered by anyone with an interest in antibiotic prescribing (e.g. GPs, medicine managers or microbiologists).

The presentation covers information and tools that help influence social norms around antibiotic prescribing, clinicians' and patients' personal attitudes to antibiotic resistance, and suggests ways of decreasing barriers to appropriate antibiotic prescribing.

We suggest that to maximise its effectiveness all primary care staff in the practice or out of hours setting are invited, practice antibiotic prescribing data are available to discuss, the resources on the website are readily available to display and the presenter is familiar with the local antibiotic guidance. If the presenter does not feel confident enough, they can make use of the voice over and stop the presentation at appropriate points for reflection and discussion.
