NORWALK, Conn., Oct. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- UBM Medica US announces that ConsultantLive offers special coverage from IDWeek 2013. The conference, held in San Francisco earlier in the month, offered plenty of useful information for primary care clinicians to apply to their practices.
Some of the stories featured in the special coverage on ConsultantLive:
- Reach for Guideline-recommended Antibiotics, Even in Severe Community-Acquired Pneumonia:This report will have primary care physicians re-thinking use of expensive broad-spectrum antibiotics for even their very sick patients.
- Primary Care Physicians Play Key Role in Promoting HPV Vaccine to Boys' Parents: One major factor contributing to low vaccination rates in boys is a lack of information and understanding about HPV disease and the vaccine, which can prevent genital warts and anogenital cancers.
- Antibiotic Scripts for Acute Respiratory Infections More Likely at Day's End: The drive to reduce inappropriate prescribing of antibiotics in primary care may need to incorporate creative new tactics: clinic siestas come to mind.
- Comprehensive STD Testing Improves Patient Outcomes: STD organisms are all part of an ecological pool that share one thing in common: sex. Comprehensive screening for sexually transmitted disease pathogens is now recommended.
