Greetings Residency Program Directors & Colleagues,
Every year, pharmacy residents across Southeastern Michigan dedicate a large amount of time & effort completing their research-related projects. These projects often positively impact our patients, departments, and/or the healthcare community as a whole. While this research is presented institutionally and at regional pharmacy symposia, these venues can often miss interested pharmacists & technicians.
In the spirit of collegiality, SMSHP annually invites all Southeastern Michigan residency programs to submit a resident research poster for presentation. In this way we can share, learn, and “show off” the great work everyone is doing. The presentation this year will take place prior to our monthly meeting in May.
Residency Program Directors:
Please nominate 1 resident from your program to include in the poster presentation. Include their email, so that we can follow-up with additional details. You can reply to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please RSVP by April 28th. SMSHP can print posters if needed.
***NOTE this event is in conjunction with ASHP President-Elect Nishaminy Kasbekar Presentation that will follow the poster session!***

Join us for a virtual presentation to learn more about two opportunities to expand and improve antimicrobial stewardship practices at your facility! In conjunction with the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, Wayne State University's Anti-Infective Research Lab is currently recruiting sites to implement two pharmacist-driven interventions related to discharge antibiotic review and automatic antibiotic substitution at blood culture identification with molecular rapid diagnostics. Interventions can be modified to the site and piloted on a single ward or unit. Sites may choose to implement one or both interventions. We will provide free support including draft policies and protocols, educational materials, and slide decks. We will also analyze all data generated from your site to assess the impact of the project.

Prior to our November CE session, we would like to help you get back in touch with our sponsors! Therefore, we are offering a virtual session for knowledge sharing and "catching up" with our vendors. The session will be hosted by Zoom, and includes "Breakout Rooms" where you can navigate to speak to individual representatives.
All sponsors can be reached with a single link (see below). Zoom has proven to be among the most user-friendly virtual options out there.
We look forward to seeing your faces again soon!

Last month we completed a voting poll of our membership. We asked you to share your preference of continuing to hold SMSHP meetings virtually, or convert back to in-person meetings as we have done in the past. We would like to provide a summary of your responses and our next steps.
In addition, we offered the opportunity for you to provide additional thoughts. Some themes that we observed in your comments:
Accordingly, we will be holding meetings in a virtual format. As returning to in-person requires some lead time to arrange the venue, we will reconsider this decision in December. Also, we are exploring options for the equipment needed to support a hybrid format, so that we can meet everyone's preferences in the future.
In the meantime, if you haven't yet done so, please use your GrubHub gift card! These are a nice way to enjoy a meal "on us" while you enjoy the meeting from the comfort of your own home.
Thank you for continuing to be a member of SMSHP.
