The challenges of critical care pharmacy continue to expand as patient cases increase in complexity, health care systems evolve, and innovative technologies are introduced across a spectrum of care. Neurocritical Care/Technology in the ICU, the new release in ACCP’s new Critical Care Self-Assessment Program (CCSAP), combines two complex ICU topics into a cohesive resource providing essential information for the pharmacist caring for the neurologically injured, critically ill patient.

Jimmi Hatton Kolpek, Pharm.D., FCCP, FCCM, FNAP

Injury to the CNS introduces particularly complex issues because patients are cognitively compromised and have systemic, metabolic responses affecting peripheral organ systems. The ICU pharmacist is challenged to anticipate these nuances in patients with stroke, brain/spinal cord injury, or status epilepticus. Fortunately, better monitoring technologies are becoming available through ICU telemedicine, improved non-invasive tools, and innovative drug safety strategies. Understanding these updated options allows pharmacists to identify and potentially circumvent drug-related problems affecting patient outcomes in the ICU.

Neurocritical Care/Technology in the ICU has two modules offering a total of 10.5 available continuing pharmacy education (CPE) credits. The book was developed under the leadership of Faculty Panel Chair Jimmi Hatton Kolpek, Pharm.D., FCCP, FCCM, FNAP.

Each CCSAP release includes two full-color online formats: (1) interactive PDFs you can save to your desktop or print; and (2) an e-media version you can view on an e-reader, tablet, iOS, or Android smart phone.

All CCSAP chapters are fully referenced, with clickable hyperlinks to literature compilers such as PubMed. Other links provide ready access to clinical practice guidelines, official recommendations, and patient assessment tools. Graphic features focus on pivotal studies, patient care scenarios, and take-home points that can be readily integrated into clinical practice.
