OPAT Handbook Now Available in Interactive, Digital Format
IDSA and CRG Publishing, a division of The Curry Rockefeller Group, LLC, have released the third edition of Handbook of Outpatient Parenteral Antimicrobial Therapy for Infectious Diseases, which provides ID specialists the tools they need to set up and provide OPAT. For the first time, the resource is available as an eHandbook that allows for easy updates, access and review. 
 
The interactive content provided in the handbook provides comprehensive guidance for practitioners providing parenteral antimicrobial therapy for patients in their homes or other non-hospital settings. The eHandbook covers topics including: infections amenable to OPAT, OPAT use in pediatrics, legal and reimbursement issues, and OPAT and health care reform. 
 
The OPAT eHandbook, edited by Akshay B. Shah, MD and Anne H. Norris, MD, is available for all mobile, tablet, and desktop devices wherever apps are sold. Support for the development of the eHandbook was provided by Allergan and The Medicines Company.
