Has your preschool child experienced a recent respiratory tract infection (chest, ear or throat infection)?

University of Oxford researchers are undertaking a research study to find out what parents or carers think is important when considering antibiotics when their child has a respiratory infection, and what they did to help their child get better.

This educational study will provide information for other parents and carers and health care professionals about how parents manage children with respiratory infections and tell us how we can improve discussions about antibiotic use between health care professionals and patients.
