Days at Risk | Keith Edwards

Days at Risk powerpoint presentation by Dr Keith Edwards at RHDAustralia Seminar Series, Darwin, 12 August 2014. Clear messages for improving timely prophylaxis are promoted. On average 30% of all Northern Territory cases of Acute Rheumatic Fever are recurrences. An audit of 5 to 19 year olds at risk of ARF showed that on any 1 day, 20% to 67% were not protected and ‘at risk’ of recurrence because of delayed secondary prophylaxis.
