MRSA knowledge poor

20th March 2008

One fifth of GPs have admitted they have "poor" knowledge of infections such as MRSA in a survey for the GP newspaper.

169 doctors were polled by the paper, which also showed two thirds of GPs reported they had not been given any data about how to act if they believed a patient had an infection. 21% said their understanding of MRSA was "good", 2% said "excellent", 59% said "fair" and 17% said it was "poor".
