Abstract
In this paper, we propose a change-point mixed model to assess the change in the trend of outpatient antibiotic use in a Bayesian framework, where the change-points are unknown parameters of the model. Model selection using DIC indicates that the data supports the model with a country-specific change-point. The location of the change-points may be related to points in time where public health strategies aiming at increasing the awareness of the public to a more rational use of antibiotics or targeting to reduce overconsumption of antibiotics were initiated.
