Abstract

Health-related quality of life (HRQoL) in outpatient parenteral antimicrobial therapy (OPAT) has not been well characterized in the United States. In an OPAT cohort, the short-form-12's median physical component score and mental component score were 40.3 and 54.4, respectively. HRQoL measures could be helpful in studies of OPAT cost-effectiveness.
