On Tuesday, April 9, 2019, the BuxMont Chapter hosted an event at the Buck Hotel, in Feasterville, PA.  Dr. Vishal Patel from Hahneman Hospital kicked off the evening with a discussion about the Management of Overt Hepatic Encephalopathy. The members were presented a case study in which assessment, treatment and follow-treatment were reviewed.

Immediately following Dr. Patel’s presentation three of the Pharmacy Residents from Abington-Jefferson Health shared their research and insight on topics currently plaguing many hospitals. Claudia Cho shared her experiences in comparing the efficacy and safety of Clonidine to Dexmedetomidine for Alcohol Withdrawal Syndrome in MICU patients; Jenna Gray discussed the clinical significance of medication history errors made by prescribers and pharmacy technicians when performing medication history in the emergency department; and Marisa Perrella displayed the clinical and financial opportunities for pharmacist intervention for the management of positive urine cultures.

All the presentations were well received over a wonderful dinner amongst colleagues.
