Antibiotic resistance is a worldwide problem and inappropriate prescriptions are a cause. Especially among children, prescriptions tend to be high. Researchers of the Department of Medical Microbiology of UMCG and the Groningen Research Institute of Pharmacy (PharmacoTherapy, -Epidemiology & -Economics) of the University of Groningen examined the antibiotic prescription prevalence among children in primary care between northern Netherlands and north-west of Germany.
