Thank You to John Goehle and his team at Ambulatory Health Strategies

Speaking at the “It’s a New World Conference 2020” was a terrific experience. A special thank you to John Goehle and Laurie Roderiques for the invitation to participate. My presentation focused on Hot Topics in Pharmacy, including medication management, patient safety, safe injection practices, updates to USP Chapters <797> and <800>, and the impact of COVID-19 on ASCs. The most rewarding part of the conference was e-meeting and learning from the other speakers, all experts in their fields. Congratulations to John and his team for being proactive and providing community and an educational opportunity for ASCs.

What Should Be in Your Malignant Hyperthermia Cart (According to a Consultant Pharmacist)

It may not make major headlines or dye the river green, but the month of March includes an important awareness campaign for increasing patient safety across healthcare facilities: it’s Malignant Hyperthermia (MH) awareness month. As a consultant pharmacist, MH is an issue of concern for the ambulatory healthcare facilities with which I work.
