Abstract

Abstract During this interactive enduring CME activity, Emergency Department specialists will discuss common challenges of managing patients with community-acquired bacterial pneumonia (CABP), including the integration of newer agents into the standard anti-infective mix. Decisions made at this pivotal point of care can affect both patient outcomes and hospital financial health. “Real-world” cases will be used to demonstrate strategies for stratifying risk according to severity; recognizing risk factors for multidrug-resistant CABP; discerning indications for hospital admission; and initiating early and appropriate antibiotic treatment within the parameters of clinical guidelines, evolving performance measures, and sound clinical judgment.
