PhD Defense: Potential drug-drug interactions in the intensive care
A fantastic day for Tinka! She defended her PhD thesis on the 7th December.
Her thesis showed that 40% of the assessed potential drug-drug interactions (pDDIs) in the intensive care (ICU) were considered not clinically relevant. The use of computerized decision support systems can support clinicians to enhance medication safely, by showing pDDI alerts to warn about pDDIs. Tailoring pDDI alerts to the ICU setting reduced exposure to clinically relevant pDDIs for ICU patients, improved patient monitoring, and decreased ICU length of stay.
