The HealthPathways site (based on a model from Christchurch, NZ) are used by our local General Practitioners and others to guide management of common syndromes and to provide guides to hospital-based services. New MRSA and MDRO (multi-drug-resistant organism) pathways provide guidance in keeping with MDRO management recommended across Hunter New England Health District .
The Recurrent Staphylococcal Infection pathway includes a step-by-step approach to patient management including decolonisation when indicated. Links to patient guides and other resources are required. See also these topic references:
