The Cochrane Review and closing comments

In this video Prof Peter Davey explains the findings of the Cochrane Systematic Review

Within Europe cultural models have explained between 25% and 50% of variance in infection-control processes and outcomes.

It is likely that specific combinations of cultural dimensions are more amenable to adherence to antibiotic policies than others. However, acknowledging the role of culture should not be used as an excuse for inaction, rather it should enable interventions to be better designed for specific cultural contexts.

Watch this final video in which Professor Peter Davey explains the findings of the Cochrane Review into interventions to improve antibiotic prescribing and the cultures in which these have taken place.
