Overarching Philosophy

Overarching Philosophy

  • We want to learn from you.
  • We have developed some tools to help-we need feedback from you.
  • Tools:
    • "Culture Kit"
    • "Action Plan"
    • Patient Education Material
    • "Patient Follow-up Diary"

    • Culture swab and label.
    • Packing material.
    • Gauze and bandages.

Action Plan

  • Clinic note with the embedded guidelines and coding information.
  • We will revise to fit your charts.

Patient Education Materials

Patient Education Materials

  • Posters.
  • Handout on general skin infections.
  • Handout on Staph infections.

Slide 6

Patient Diary

Patient Diary

  • CDC recommends "close follow-up".
  • We have developed a diary that patients can return by mail, which can then be added into the chart.
  • What if a patient doesn't return the diary?
  • We are primarily interested in coming up with feasible tools for practice. Thoughts??
