The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC’s) Get Smart about Antibiotics Week aims to reduce antibiotic resistance by promoting appropriate use for respiratory conditions.

This campaign promotes adherence to appropriate prescribing guidelines among providers, decreased demand for antibiotics for viral upper respiratory infections among healthy adults and parents of young children, and increased adherence to prescribed antibiotics for upper respiratory infections.

Free patient education materials and continuing medical education opportunities are available at www.cdc.gov/getsmart. The Academy is a campaign partner.
