Figure 2

Example of pop-up on physician's computer screen. The pop-up appears when the physician is about to prescribe antibiotics for a respiratory tract infection (RTI), and enables the physician to decide whether the prescription is 1) to be dispensed immediately or 2) to be dispensed in a specified number of days, with advice to the patient to wait and see if the condition improves spontaneously, so-called "delayed prescription". Type of prescription and recommended delay (n days) for delayed prescriptions will be registered in the study software installed in the physicians computer and analysed by research staff.
