Ethics approval and consent to participate
: The objective of the antibiotics study was for quality improvement, which exempted the study from ethical approval according to the regional ethics committee of north Norway [CitationRef removed]. The Norwegian patient record law exempts patient consent when processing health data for quality improvement purposes [CitationRef removed]. Therefore, the antibiotics study did not require ethical approval and consent from patients. However, we have received the approvals of all participating GPs.
