Treating your infection - Respiratory tract infection (TYI-RTI) leaflet 

The TYI-RTI patient information leaflet has been designed to be used with patients who are experiencing self limiting RTIs. 

This leaflet supports implementation of recommendations in the NICE guidelines on processes for antimicrobial stewardship and behaviour change for antimicrobial stewardship.

TYI-RTI pictorial leaflet

The leaflet can be used either to provide information on RTIs. It is pictorial and uses plain English so that it is suitable for a range of community groups. The leaflet may also be used during primary care consultations to facilitate dialogue between a patient and their healthcare professional on specific topics like treatment or safety netting. We would recommend that the leaflet is used as a tool to interact with patients, rather than as a ‘parting gift’.
