Little is known about the determinants of antimicrobial prescribing behaviour (APB), how they vary between hospital prescribers, or the mechanism by which interventions are effective. Yet, interventions based on a sound theoretical understanding of APB are more likely to be successful in changing outcomes. This study sought to quantify the potential determinants of APB among hospital doctors in South-west England.
