GUARD is pleased to offer a lecture on Community Associated Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (CA-MRSA) as part of a statewide educational campaign. Physicians can get 1.25 Continuing Medical Education cretdits through the Medical College of Georgia for participating in this activity. Both the lecture and the CME offer can be accessed by clicking on the following link: http://www.mcg.edu/ce/Online/mrsaonline.htm Physicians can listen alone or listen and get credit. Please follow instructions on the linked web-page to claim CME credit. The first 250 physicians  to respond to the offer will receive these credits for free. The cost for any further physicians is $10.

9,700 pirmary care physicians throughout Georgia received educational packets in September of 2008 that contain a variety of materials on CA-MRSA. These materials include a fact sheet, a patient discharge form, a poster, and a two-page synopsis of CDC recommendations on management of CA-MRSA infections. All of these materials are also available for download on this website. Please go to the "Educational Materials" tab to find them. 

Any member of the public can also listen to this lecture for free. To do so, click on the same link: http://www.mcg.edu/ce/Online/mrsaonline.htm. Scroll down the page giving instructions to physicians, then click on "view online program".

This effort represents a collaboration between GUARD, the Georgia Department of Human Resources, and the Georgia MRSA Task Force, with additional assistance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta.
