Antibiotics: Learning exercises

Last updated: Sunday, June 13, 2021

There is a quiz to help reinforce your learning about antibiotics here. You can look things up if you need to. 

Real clinical problems

Look at these real clinical problems and decide what further questions you’d ask and where you would look for information.
When you’re ready, here are our suggested answers. Do you agree? If you want to, you could talk to your tutor or a colleague about them or record them as a CPD exercise.

Additional learning 

If you need a basic refresher on antimicrobial resistance, then try this e-learning programme developed by Health Education England in collaboration with Public Health England and NHS England.

Do an enquiry in a Medicines Information (MI) centre

If you have access to the MiCAL training package (subscription required) you may like to undertake question number 1 in its database of example MI enquiries, which involves a scenario where an antibiotic-related decision is required.
