ER-Rx is a podcast dedicated to informing emergency room/ intensive care unit physicians, residents, pharmacists, advanced practice providers, and nurses on appropriate and optimal use of medications. This podcast will provide laid-back, fun, useful information in easily digestible portions. Tune in each week as we review recently-published guidelines and studies, answer medication-related questions, present "Grand Rounds" on a wide variety of clinical topics, and enjoy "An Expert Talks" where we invite guests outside of the pharmacy department to discuss a critical topic. Our host, Dr. Adis Keric, is a Board Certified Pharmacotherapy Specialist and a Board Certified Critical Care pharmacist who currently works in the emergency room and intensive care units at a large, level I trauma center. Adis has more than 8 years of hospital pharmacy experience, including 2 years of residency. He acts as a PGY-1 and PGY-2 critical care pharmacy residency preceptor in the emergency room, surgical intensive care unit, medical intensive care unit, and the neurocritical care unit. He is also a preceptor for local pharmacy students and is heavily involved in the research aspect of the pharmacy residency programs at his site.
