Happy Sunday! Thank you to all our experts for such a rich discussion thus far. Many comments have referenced the absolute importance of incision and drainage in abscess treatment, beyond the decision whether or not to prescribe antimicrobials. Dr. Stevens rightly points out a strength of this study: namely, that I&D training was provided, which standardized the results. Outside of the clinical trial world, what is your impression of I&D quality and education in the Emergency Dept. and how might it relate to differences in outcomes? Is there room for improvement here?
