Such an important topic and I have come across this recent resource: https://www.cdc.gov/diabetes/professional-info/health-care-pro/diabetes-pharmacy-health.html

Webinar

Commented on Know Diabetes by Heart: AHA Scientific Sessions Highlights—Latest Research on CVD and Diabetes
Great to see what is being done in terms of chronic conditions!

Webinar

Commented on Antimicrobial Stewardship-Based Integration of Rapid Molecular Diagnostics and PCT for Pneumonia
Thank you for sharing! This is amazing and helps to think of stewardship in this perspective especially with the intervention.

Commented on AI & your research work
I have not utilized personally in my public health work, but can be useful in analyzing big data. I found this interesting for potential application: https://blogs.cdc.gov/genomics/2022/03/01/artificial-intelligence-2/ Still so new with concerns ethically and regulatory

Webinar

Commented on Understanding text recycling and how to avoid self-plagiarism
Very helpful to have these conversations especially when a research area continues to grow

Webinar

Commented on AI for Personalized Medicine
We can definitely see the benefits of the application and address gaps and needs of patients when providers are not necessarily available.

Commented on COVID-19 Variant Tracker
"Experts say this variant has a higher transmissibility rate than previous strains but doesn't appear to be more dangerous." At least good news on the danger level.

Article

Commented on Pediatric Antibiotic Stewardship for Community-Acquired Pneumonia: A Pre–Post Intervention Study
There was a decrease in antibiotic use specifically for pneumonia, but due to the 1-day seminar, could there be potential underutilization for a period after? However, "Our data demonstrate that the implementation of an ASP was associated with a reduction in the use of broad-spectrum antibiotics and macrolides and increased guideline adherence for the safe treatment of CAP."

Article

Commented on Impact of antimicrobial stewardship programs on antibiotic consumption and antimicrobial resistance in four Colombian healthcare institutions
Seems to be consistent across other studies in different areas. "ASPs are a key strategy in tackling the emerging threat of AMR and have a positive impact on antibiotic consumption and resistance."

Article

Commented on Financial Incentives for Infection Prevention and Antimicrobial Stewardship to Reduce Antibiotic Use: Japan’s Nationwide Observational Study
You would hope there would be a difference in antibiotic use, but if it was needed for patients, then incentives may not matter. "did not observe meaningful changes in total antibiotic use between the incentivized and unincentivized hospitals for ASP teams."

Article

Commented on Bacterial co-infection and antibiotic stewardship in patients with COVID-19: a systematic review and meta-analysis
Interesting and important finding. "There is currently insufficient evidence to support widespread empirical use of antibiotics in most hospitalized patients with COVID-19, as the overall proportion of bacterial co-infection is low."

Article

Commented on Candida auris Admission Screening Pilot in Select Units of New York City Healthcare Facilities, 2017-2019
We can see how this was most helpful in the ventilator units of nursing homes. "This project demonstrates the utility of admission screening using rt-PCR testing to rapidly identify C. auris colonization among admissions to health care facilities so that appropriate transmission-based precautions and control measures can be implemented rapidly to help decrease transmission."

Poster

Commented on Designing highly reliable systems using random devices
Very unique and interesting looking at the optimization piece
