The regional ProBA project conducted in Emilia-Romagna aims at assessing the determinants of antibiotic prescriptions in children and at promoting appropriate use of antibiotic for upper respiratory infections. During the first phase of the ProBA project the following priorities for action were identified: a) facilitating communications between parents and paediatricians, through informative materials developed ad hoc on acute respiratory infections in children and the correct use of antibiotics; b) improving the management of sore throat and acute otitis media in children through the development of guidelines along with instruments for their implementation (decision aids, rapid diagnostic tests, audit and feedback of antimicrobial usage, training courses). The guidelines were developed according to the international GRADE system that aims at building a transparent and clear process for the attribution of the strengths of the recommendations, and contain a summary of the recommendations, diagnostic and therapeutic algorithms and tables of evidence plus instruments for guidelines implementation. The guidelines are provided to professionals in two formats: the full guideline and a pocket summary version for prompt consultation, which is presented here.
