WEBINAR | Principles of Drug Dosing in Patients with Extreme Obesity: One Size Does Not Fit All
September 28, 2022, 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CDT
Jeffrey Barletta, BS, PharmD, Vice Chair of Pharmacy Practice, Midwestern University. Obesity is increasingly prevalent in hospitalized patients, which presents many challenges for clinicians, including drug dosing. Drug doses typically do not account for the pharmacokinetic variation that is present with obesity, and failure to account for this variability can lead to underdosing and treatment failure or overdosing and an adverse effect. This webinar, tailored towards a multidisciplinary audience, examines some of the many challenges that exist when crafting and implementing a dosing regimen in this population.
