Although commonly reported, true penicillin allergy is actually rare. It is common for patients to be given antibiotics that are suboptimal for treating their infections that also result in higher costs and unnecessary use broad-spectrum antibiotics that can promote the development of resistant organisms. Clinicians need to know how to identify true penicillin allergy. This course provides resources clinicians can use to manage patients who believe they are allergic to penicillin.
The JAMA Network has published a series of articles, podcasts, and videos on this process and also developed a toolkit clinicians can use in their clinical practice to assess penicillin sensitivity.
