NHS England, 23 Stephenson Street, Birmingham, West Midlands, B2 4HQ, United Kingdom

What is the TARGET antibiotics toolkit?

Developed by the UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA), the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) and the Antimicrobial Stewardship in Primary Care (ASPIC) Group, TARGET is the central resource to help primary care healthcare professionals and commissioning organisations improve antibiotic prescribing. Using the TARGET Antibiotics Toolkit resources will also enable primary care organisations to demonstrate compliance with the Health and Social Care Act 2008: Code of Practice on the prevention and control of infections and related guidance.

What is the purpose of a TARGET train the trainer event?

The purpose of this session is to train you to deliver TARGET antibiotic workshops locally and train you to become a TARGET trainer yourself, so that you can cascade training to others.

Why should I become a TARGET trainer?

Being a TARGET approved trainer not only helps fulfil Continuing Professional Development (CPD) requirements, but it can also help: 

  1. Improve yours and/or others’ antibiotic prescribing habits
  2. You and your ICB to meet national prescribing targets and optimise antibiotic prescribing
  3. You gain experience in project leadership and presenting to a professional audience
  4. Boost your professional credibility and confidence

Where and when will TARGET train the trainer sessions be held?

There are two sessions planned for 2023, both being held at the NHS England office at 23 Stephenson Street, Birmingham, B2 4BH.

The second session will be on 13th September 2023 from 9.30 am- 4.00 pm approx.
