Abstract:

Poster presented on: Sunday, November 17, 2013, Saturday, November 16, 2013

Practitioners and researchers have documented an increase in community-acquired methicillin resistant staphylococcus aureus (CA-MRSA) skin and soft tissue infections (SSTIs). This increase is causing stress and concern for the individuals infected and the families of those infected. The impact of a practitioner based multifocal training has not been clearly established. The purpose of this capstone project was to determine the effect of a multifocal training on CA-MRSA SSTIs that educated primary care practitioners about treatment guidelines, Marion County, WV susceptibility data, I&D technique, and a patient education tool versus common treatment practices to increase practitioner’s knowledge and utilization of evidence based guidelines in the treatment of CA-MRSA SSTIs.  Multifocal trainings educated practitioners concerning CA -MRSA SSTIs in Marion County, West Virginia.
