Description

Antibiotics-puy Dhawu (Antibiotics Story) is a health literacy resource for Yolŋu (from North East Arnhem Land) and other Indigenous people, to help increase understanding about infection and antibiotics.

In this DVD, Ms Yurranydjil Dhurrkay and Mrs Alice Mitchell RN tell the story of the original development of microscopes and the discovery of bacteria. It follows the story of how scientists learned that bacteria cause infection and the interesting account of the 'accidental' discovery of penicillin.

The DVD goes on to explain how antibiotics work and the need to finish a course of antibiotics in order to completely resolve infections. It also covers the problem of 'antibiotic resistance' as well as ways we can help support our immune system. The second chapter of the DVD shows the three different ways that antibiotics can be administered (oral, IM, IV). A full English transcript of the subtitles is available.
