In this presentation, Dr. Lambert will describe the four core projects that comprise the UIC Center for Education and Research on Therapeutics. The theme of the center is “Tools for Optimizing Medication Safety (TOP-MEDS).” The projects are designed to achieve the following aims: 1) Develop and apply a multivariate, person-time logistic regression model for large-scale adverse drug event screening;2) Improve the safety and effectiveness of inpatient acute pain care by developing and validating a novel, web-based simulator to train prescribers in the proper selection and dosing of opioids;3) Refine a standard battery of tests for pre-market safety screening of drug names, and develop and test methods for preventing and detecting drug name confusion errors using electronic medical record data;4) Rigorously evaluate a low literacy strategy for promoting safe and effective prescription medication use among English and Spanish-speaking patients in an urban primary care setting. The presentation will provide status updates on each of the projects.
