Resources required for pediatric OPAT services

0

Abstract:

We conducted a survey of pediatric members of the Emerging Infections Network regarding outpatient parenteral antimicrobial therapy (OPAT) practices and clinical decision making about OPAT initiation. We identified substantial variation in characteristics and resources of pediatric OPAT practices. Opportunities to improve oversight of OPAT in children should be explored.
