Leaflets to share with patients

The patient information leaflets are a widely used part of the TARGET resources. They are designed to be shared with patients during the consultation and aim to improve the patient’s confidence to self care and the prescriber’s communication with the parents.

Treating your Infection patient leaflet

The Patient Treating Your Infection leaflet is a useful tool for clinicians to use within consultations for patients who do not require an antibiotic prescription for their infection. It includes information on illness duration, self-care advice and advice on when to re-consult. Use of this leaflet has been approved by PHE, RCGP, BSAC, NHS Scotland, RCN, IPS and BIA.

If you make any substantial changes to the Treating Your Infection leaflet then the professional society and crystal mark logos may need to be removed.
