Answer

The significance of antibiotic regimen compliance is the single most important factor in patient education. Incomplete treatment can lead to resistance with devastating results.

The importance of orthotic brace compliance must also be stressed.

Educate patients on early neurologic signs, and instruct patients to return for medical attention on detection of the slightest deficit.
