The goal of this program is to improve the management of rhinosinusitis and staphylococcal infections in children. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:
1. Evaluate patients who present with signs and symptoms of rhinosinusitis.
2. Follow current guidelines for the medical treatment of rhinosinusitis in children.
3. Identify surgical strategies for managing rhinosinusitis in children who fail medical therapy.
4. Recognize risk factors for community-acquired methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (CA-MRSA) infection.
5. Prescribe appropriate empiric antibiotic therapy for the management of CA-MRSA.
