|Event Description:||Penicillin allergy is the most commonly reported antibiotic allergy and is associated with a host of negative outcomes. Knowledge of the types of reactions, as well as the lack of clinically significant immunologic cross-reactivity, can help determine optimal prescribing of beta-lactams in the setting of an allergy. This session will review how to incorporate different options to treat these patients into antimicrobial stewardship, including optimal allergy history taking, re-challenge, graded challenge, and penicillin skin testing.|
