Kidney Transplant 101: A Practical Approach to the Management of Kidney Transplant Patients.
Dr. Cindy Luo, BScPharm, PharmD, ACPR, BCPS
Have you ever had a moment of panic when a kidney transplant patient gets admitted to your ward? From immunosuppressive basics to discussion of opportunistic infections, this case-based presentation will focus on how to approach a kidney transplant patient from the time of hospital admission to discharge.
SGLT2 Inhibitors for Heart Failure: Does glucose in the PEE protect THEE from DysPNEa?
Dr. Arden Barry, BSc, BScPharm, PharmD, ACPR
"Wait, what? An antidiabetic drug for a cardiac condition? Is this like that time we used a drug for erectile dysfunction to treat pulmonary hypertension? Basically, yes. This presentation will feature a discussion of the latest evidence and practical considerations for SGLT2 inhibitors in the management of heart failure including the seminal DAPA-HF trial, which was published in November 2019. Unlike my previous CSHP-BC presentation on SGLT2 inhibitors, this one will feature a balanced discussion of the benefits and risks of therapy without the need for James McCormack to contradict everything I say." ~Arden Barry
Presentation and Management of Uncomplicated vs Complicated Gram Positive Bacteremias
Ms. Julia Cahill, BScPharm, ACPR, MPH(Epi)
Gram positive pathogens have virulence factors that facilitate deep tissue invasion and adherence to damaged tissue, predisposing patients to more complicated clinical courses. The audience will learn how to evaluate patients with gram positive bacteremias to support clinical teams in identifying seeding and complications, and optimize antimicrobial therapy.
