GP HealthPathways released for recurrent Staph. infection, MRSA and MDRO

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:
