MRSA Expert Consensus Documents, 2009

These are the proceedings of three workshops that took place during the MRSA Consensus Conference sponsored by the European Society of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (13–14 December 2007).
The authors are practitioners in the field with considerable experience in the prevention and control of healthcare-associated infection (HCAI), including MRSA.
Although it should be clearly stated that expert reports and consensus based on clinical experience should be explicitly labelled as low-quality evidence, there remains a role for expert opinion while better systems for rating the quality of evidence and the strength of existing recommendations are developed and adopted.
