End of course video
Thank you very much for completing the OPAT course. We very much hope you have enjoyed your OPAT journey and it has been our pleasure helping to guide you through it.
We are really keen to get your thoughts of the content of this course - are they any other resources you think would be valuable?
OPAT is growing and it is fast becoming an established treatment option for patients. If you are thinking about developing a service or you are looking to improve an existing service we hope the MOOC has shown you the importance of OPAT team structure, a clear antimicrobial management OPAT plan that incorporates local antimicrobial stewardship principles, and that your service has a clear clinical governance framework.
