Martin P, et al. JAMA 2018 - Clinical Trial. PMID 30422193 Free PMC article.
IMPORTANCE: High rates of inappropriate prescribing persist among older adults in many outpatient settings, increasing the risk of adverse drug events and drug-related hospitalizations. ...At 6 months, 106 of 248 patients (43%) in the intervention group no longer filled prescriptions for inappropriate medication compared with 29 of 241 (12%) in the control group (risk difference, 31% [95% CI, 23% to 38%]). ...

C-Reactive Protein Testing to Guide Antibiotic Prescribing for COPD Exacerbations.
Butler CC, et al. N Engl J Med 2019 - Clinical Trial. PMID 31291514
The antibiotic prescribing decisions made by clinicians at the initial consultation were ascertained for all but 1 patient, and antibiotic prescriptions issued over the first 4 weeks of follow-up were ascertained for 96.9% of the patients. ...CONCLUSIONS: CRP-guided prescribing of antibiotics for exacerbations of COPD in primary care clinics resulted in a lower percentage of patients who reported antibiotic use and who received antibiotic prescriptions from clinicians, with no evidence of harm. ...
