This is a cluster-randomised, open controlled, crossover, superiority trial. We aim to describe an automatically-presented, privacy-protecting. In addition, an educational handbook developed by us for primary outpatient institutions will be distributed to primary physicians.

Why is it important?

Unlike previous studies, the interventions used in this study are auto-presented, privacy-protected, computer-based information technology (IT), and low-cost. And for the first time, we're using a cluster crossover intervention in this area.


Thanks to my doctoral supervisor for giving me inspiration. Thanks to the research team members for their efforts. This is a new attempt in the field of antibiotic prescribing behavior change intervention.
