Scottish Reduction in Antimicrobial Prescribing (ScRAP)

Quality Prescribing Scottish Reduction in Antimicrobial Prescribing (ScRAP) Programme V2 *Updated and extended to support improvements in UTI management*

The ScRAP programme is an educational toolkit to help support a reduction in unnecessary antibiotic prescribing in primary care.  The ScRAP programme was originally launched in 2013, and updated in 2016-2017.  The update includes refresh and reformatting of the general antimicrobial resistance and respiratory tract infections (RTI) sessions, and addition of sessions on urinary tract infections (UTI).

Although primarily aimed at GP practices, ScRAP V2 may also be of interest to others involved in the assessment and management of infection in primary care, for example district nurses and care home staff.

ScRAP is a collaborative development between the Scottish Antimicrobial Prescribing Group (SAPG) and NHS Education for Scotland (NES). Development has been undertaken by a multidisciplinary reference group with clinical and educational representation.
