Gun Violence Awareness Event on Sept 16
SAFE (www.standsafe.org) is planning on leading another nationwide gun violence awareness event at Stanford and at our 45+ medical school chapters in the US. The recent spate of mass shootings (on top of the 40,000 Americans who lost their lives in the last year) emphasizes the importance of U.S. doctors, nurses, and other healthcare professionals leading the way to eliminate the American firearms violence epidemic through research, education, and evidence-based policy.
The plan for our Stanford Campus is to meet on the Dean’s Lawn at 1200 for a dignified rally and some brief remarks. From 1230-1430 at LKSC room 130, we will be having a high quality educational seminar on giving health care providers and public health professionals some of the tools they can use to educate their patients on gun violence prevention and to serve as advocates in their communities. We will have speakers from our School of Medicine faculty, Stanford’s Law School, UC Davis and UCSF, and one of our Stanford medical students.
Change in preferred anti-pseudomonal agent from piperacillin-tazobactam to cefepime or ceftazidime when used concomitantly with vancomycin
Use of concomitant vancomycin and Zosyn has been associated with a significantly increased risk of AKI vs. comparators. Please click here to view data summary and recommendations from the Stanford Antimicrobial Stewardship Team.
