OBJECTIVE To create a mathematical model to investigate the treatment impact and economic implications of introducing an antimicrobial resistance point-of-care test (AMR POCT) for gonorrhoea as a way of extending the life of current last-line treatments. DESIGN Modelling study. SETTING England. POPULATION Patients accessing sexual health services. INTERVENTIONS Incremental impact of introducing a hypothetical AMR POCT that could detect susceptibility to previous first-line antibiotics… CONTINUE READING
