Physicians often have preferences with regard to the contrast media they prefer. However, without an evidence-based comparison of the safety, utility, and diagnostic performance of competing products, the contrast agent used may not be the best product from a clinical performance perspective. Using an evidence-based approach can balance the marketing hype and physician preference that sometimes drives the selection of contrast media.
We’d like to commend our colleagues, Pamela Johnson, RN, MHA, Administrator, Imaging & Cardiology Resource Management, from Dignity Health, and Nancy Cahill, PharmD, from Cardinal Health Pharmacy Solutions, for leading the development of an evidence-based methodology for contrast media selection in the Dignity Health system. They will be sharing this process and the clinical and operational outcomes achieved at a complimentary webinar on Tuesday, March 27, 2012, from 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM EDT.
Sign up and learn more about this systematic approach, which includes a review of the clinical evidence and an evaluation of the outcomes associated with the various contrast agents.
The webinar will be accredited for one (1) Category A ARRT CE Credit through the AHRA and one (1) ANCC CE Unit for Nurses and ACPE Pharmacy Credits. This webinar is not sponsored by or affiliated with Hayes, Inc.
