Grants and Contracts Details
Emergency Medicine Pharmacists (EMPs) serve as an essential part of the EM healthcare team and are trained to be well-versed pharmacotherapy experts in wide variety of critical diseases states, age groups, and complex patient populations. EM pharmacists play a significant role in tailoring antimicrobial therapy ensuring adequate coverage in complex patient populations. 1-3 The research goal of this project is to conduct real-time antimicrobial resistance surveillance for patients presenting to the ED with uncomplicated/complicated cystitis or pyelonephritis. Providing real-time antimicrobial resistance data will improve antimicrobial prescribing and allow for the creation of local ED antibiograms. The long term goal is to create a geographically-diverse national Emergency Department (ED)-based network of EM pharmacists in collaboration with EM physicians to conduct clinical research evaluating patients presenting to the ED with various disease states.
