By convention, children with acute osteomyelitis have received postdischarge antibiotic therapy via a peripherally inserted central catheter (PICC). A recent study funded by the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) offers new evidence on the comparative effectiveness of antibiotic therapy delivered by PICC versus oral routes.
In this multi-accredited continuing education video, an expert physician panel that includes the study’s principal investigator discusses applications of the findings to clinical practice. The physicians are joined by a parent who shares insights into her daughter’s challenges with acute osteomyelitis.
Together the panel offers valuable guidance to support all members of the pediatric healthcare team in promoting safe and effective treatment outcomes for children with this serious disease.
