SCRIPT puts the Auckland DHB and Starship Children’s Hospital Antibiotic Treatment Guidelines at your fingertips.

The recommendations given in this guide were developed for use at Auckland DHB and Starship Children’s Hospital. While we are happy to make them freely accessible, the antibiotic treatment recommendations may not always be appropriate for other institutions. SCRIPT is meant to serve as antibiotic treatment guidelines and DO NOT supplant clinical judgement or consultation with an adult infectious disease or paediatric infectious disease experts when indicated. While we have attempted to verify that all information is correct, because of on-going research, practises may have changed so please check the current version of this app for its currency. Within the app are links to web-based calculators and other information, these are only available within the intranet of the ADHB and Starship Children’s Hospital.
