    With so many patients demanding antibiotics this gave me good talking points to back up the doctor when no antibiotics are prescribed

    Good talking points

    Glad to see a course that gives solid references about the dangers of overprescribing antibiotics. Wish all the joint replacement surgeons would read this rather than loading up all their patients (my patients) to cover their rears.

    Antibiotic dangers

    Good info to share with patients, especially those with total hips and knees whose orthopedic surgeons keep throwing antibiotics at them and expect us to write the Rx. Antibiotic resistance increasing is a real threat.
