    In celebration of 30 years of SIDP, the BCIDP Recertification Committee is taking us back to the 1990s and the initial publication of the Hartford Nomogram by SIDP member Dr. David Nicolau, which kicked off a paradigm shift in how we dose aminoglycosides (article can be downloaded below). But do aminoglycosides still have a role in the treatment of gram negative infections today? 

    SIDP member Dr. Samantha Steiger takes us through the “then and now” of aminoglycoside pharmacokinetics and therapeutics in the latest release of the SIDP Journal Club Series, available starting June 21st for BCIDP and ACPE recertification credit.

    The article can be downloaded here and the journal club activity will be up after 12:00PM EDT on June 21, 2021 on the BCIDP re-certification page.

    In celebration of 30 years of SIDP, the Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion Task Force would like to recognize the steps SIDP has taken in this 30th year, to break down barriers regarding structural racism, inequities, and inclusion. Please join us in celebrating and recognizing the work of SIDP, the DEI Task Force, and the positive direction we are headed as an organization by completing the Breaking Barriers Crossword Puzzle!

    This activity is just for fun – and hopefully a great way to learn a little more about the history of SIDP.

    To kick off celebrating 30 years of SIDP, the Public Outreach committee is launching the inaugural Infectious Diseases (ID) Pharmacists Day on May 22, the inception date of SIDP.  This will become an annual event to recognize the importance of ID pharmacists in promoting appropriate antimicrobial use and the contributions they make to patient care, education, and research. This year’s theme is celebrating ID pharmacists as “Essential COVID-19 healthcare providers”. Please join us by taking part in the Twitter Storm on 5/22 from 4 - 5 PM EDT.
