Nationwide survey of ID physicians and pharmacists

Guest Post: Charlie Garland from the Healthcare Innovation & Technology Laboratory (HITLAB*) @ Columbia University Medical Center is conducting a nationwide survey of Infectious Disease physicians and pharmacists around treatment patterns for carbapenem resistant bacterial infections, and he would like your participation and expertise to help in this research.  

This survey will only require 10 – 15 minutes to complete, but the results will be extremely valuable.  We will gladly share the results of our research with each participant, which will help you and your colleagues to understand how your individual strategies compare to those of your peers – within your region, and across the US.

The link below will connect you to this survey, which will ask you:

·        A few demographic questions about the hospital at which you practice.

·        5 scenario-specific questions around treatment strategies that you would most likely employ in each case.

·        7 follow-up strategies, based on different patient responses to the initial Rx.

·        An option to enter your name/email if you’d like to receive the survey results (aggregated).

The information we gather will be de-identified and only reported in the aggregate.

Please feel free to forward this link on to colleagues whom you believe would like to participate.  We are asking participation of infectious disease physicians, fellows, residents, interns, and pharmacists.

Kind regards,
