Scientist Demonstrates Association Between Drug Shortages & Increased Mortality
As such, I would like to congratulate Dr. Hannah Wunsch (the paper's senior author) and her colleagues on their recent publication in JAMA that illustrates a clear association between drug shortages and increased mortality. Click here for a link to the article.
Simultaneous with publication, this paper was presented as a plenary communication to the opening session of the major critical care meeting, the ISICEM, in Brussels this week. An accompanying editorial highlights the importance of this study in affecting systematic change to improve patient care. Bravo!
