CIDRAP ASP Journal Club - June 2017

Wenzler E, Wang F, Goff DA, et al. An automated, pharmacist-driven initiative improves quality of care for Staphylococcus aureus bacteremia. Clin Infect Dis 2017 (published online Apr 4)

Our journal club for June 2017 will focus on the role of health informatics to support antimicrobial stewardship decision-making in the electronic medical record and advance quality of care for patients with bacteremia at an Ohio hospital.

During June, we will host several activities that will provide you with opportunities to share your thoughts on the study, discuss experiences with informatics and computerized clinical decision support systems in clinical practice, and learn from experts engaged in antimicrobial stewardship interventions.

There are multiple ways to participate!

Read the article or view the slides (in PDF or PowerPoint format) summarizing the study. Please feel free to download the slide set and use it to discuss these findings with students or colleagues.

Watch our webinar with study author Debra Goff, PharmD, of The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center.
