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.
