Podcast 112: MRSA guidelines from IDSA

(10 votes, average: 3.80 out of 5)

The Infectious Diseases Society of American last week issued clinical practice guidelines on dealing with methicillin-resistant S. aureus infection. We interview the principal author of those guidelines, Dr. Catherine Liu of the University of California, San Francisco.

Dr. Liu responds to the criticism leveled earlier this week against all IDSA guidelines, for their apparent lack of high-level evidence to back their recommendations.
