Dialogue Around Respiratory Illness Treatment (DART)

Dialogue Around Respiratory Illness Treatment

The Dialogue Around Respiratory illness Treatment (DART) program was designed to support antibiotic stewardship by offering physicians:

  • An illustration of the importance of antibiotic stewardship.
  • An introduction to evidence-based communication strategies for health care providers to use to help parents understand when antibiotics are not effective while still maintaining satisfaction with care.
  • A review of evidence-based antibiotic prescribing guidelines for acute respiratory tract infections

The program includes a series of video training modules as well as feedback reports summarizing off-guideline antibiotic prescribing over time for providers participating in the DART quality improvement program. Below is an example feedback report as well as the full suite of video training modules.
