Management of Community Acquired Pneumonia – ICST

Management of Community Acquired Pneumonia

The aim of this National Welsh Standard is to ensure we are checking the diagnosis, assessing severity and considering co-morbidities when a patient presents to hospital with suspected Community Acquired Pneumonia, before initiating the most effective antibiotic therapy.
