Report imageA new chart is available to assist in evaluating and treating skin and soft tissue infections in the era of community-associated methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA).

IDSA encourages its members to make their family-practice colleagues aware of it.

The document, which describes strategies based on the input from MRSA experts and a review of available data, is available for download.
