Abstract

The prevalence of antibiotic use in long-term care facilities (LTCF) is high and in many cases it may not be in accordance with local guidelines. It is important to review interventions that aim to improve the quality of antibiotic prescribing in this setting.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 10. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 01 January 2018.
All research outputs
#2,557,725
of 19,141,800 outputs
Outputs from Drugs & Aging
#161
of 1,086 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#29,163
of 206,381 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Drugs & Aging
#5
of 21 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 19,141,800 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done well and is in the 86th percentile: it's in the top 25% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,086 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a little more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 6.0. This one has done well, scoring higher than 84% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 206,381 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done well, scoring higher than 85% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 21 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 80% of its contemporaries.
