Biomarkers as point-of-care tests to guide prescription of antibiotics in patients with acute respiratory infections in primary care

  • Protocol
  • Intervention



This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:

To assess the benefits and harms of available point-of-care biomarkers of infection compared to 'standard care', e.g. no point-of-care biomarker used.
