Summary "A practical handbook for physicians, nurses, physician assistants, students, residents, and fellows, The 6 Ds of Fecal Microbiota Transplantation provides a clinical framework to understand and administer FMT as safely and effectively as possible. FMT has emerged as a promising treatment for Clostridioides difficile infection (CDI) and other clinical conditions linked to the microbiome. However, there is a need for educational resources for clinicians. This guide provides practical tools, clinical pearls, and answers to frequently asked questions on the treatment, as well as outlines a step-by-step checklist for administering FMT: Decision: Who is the right patient to receive FMT? Donor: How do you select and screen a donor for FMT? Discussion: What are the risks, benefits, and alternatives that need to be discussed with patients? Delivery: What is the best delivery method for FMT? Discharge and follow-up: What is the ideal post-FMT care? Discovery: What are the most promising emerging clinical applications for FMT?"-- Provided by publisher
