      • as a How-To resource, a (brief web-based video);
      • with Qs and As section; and
      • is supplemented with evidence from the research literature on how it has been tested in trials.

It has been commissioned by the Centre for Research Excellence in Minimising Antibiotic Resistance for Acute respiratory Infections (CREMARA), at Bond University, funded by NHMRC.
