|Abstract:||A poster presentation regarding the evaluation of pharmacists’ drug information access at patient bedside in the intensive care unit. Introduction: Clinical pharmacists in acute care teams such as the Intensive Care Unit have been shown to reduce preventable adverse drug reactions (ADRs) by 78% and respond to drug information (DI) queries in the shortest time possible. A study by Kopp et al found that a clinical pharmacist present at ward level with a critical care team effectively identified and prevented ADRs leading to a decrease in potential costs of over €210,000 in 5 months. Aims: To evaluate and assess the access of DI pharmacists at the patient bedside in a 20-bed Intensive Care Unit|
