Panel members represent experts in adult and pediatric infectious diseases.
The guidelines are evidence-based.
A standard ranking system is used for the strength of the recommendations and the quality of the evidence cited in the literature reviewed.
The document has been subjected to external review by peer reviewers as well as by the Practice Guidelines Committee and was approved by the IDSA Council.
An executive summary and tables highlight the major recommendations.
Indicators for measuring compliance with the standards are included.
