Optimising OPAT through MDT: Part 1

Watch this video and learn about the the patient. Consider their current medication, treatment, and the role that an MDT could play in their care.

The third case on our ward round is presented in the video above, a case of a 64-year-old female presenting with a painful knee and a potential prosthetic joint infection.

You will think through many different aspects of the case, such as:

  • Current medication
  • OPAT MDT roles
  • Treatment progression

Work through the video, making sure to pause when advised so you can take time to think and write down your answers.
