We are happy to announce that significant headway has been made in the inclusion of patients in primary care and long-term care settings across different countries for the point prevalence audit survey (PPAS) that is a part of Work Package 4a.
Currently, a total of 375 patients have been included in the PPAS across 9 countries in primary care settings whilst a total of 5 patients have been included in long-term care settings across 2 countries.
The goals for each setting and each country are 240 patients to be included. So far, Hungary is leading for primary care sites with 197 patients.
This PPAS aims to record information about patients who seek healthcare for CA-ARTI, helping researchers to benchmark patterns of testing and antibiotic prescribing in different European healthcare settings by observing current routine care practices.
The chart below shows in real-time the inclusion of patients across different countries in Europe. Keep checking this page for more information.
