Thank you all for the massive turnout at the recent pneumonia/COPD CME talk at the Sebel Trinity Wharf. The pneumonia pathway for primary care that was discussed at the meeting is now available on Bay Navigator- click here to go to the page.
You will see some really useful info, e.g. how to use the CRB-65 score, optimal antibiotic choice, the utility of ordering a chest Xray via the Acute Demand Service, or how to claim for follow-up visits after seeing a pneumonia patient.
Importantly, it will help you decide which patients need referring up acutely, and which you can safely manage yourself- in particular those you might be a bit uncertain about.
