Date of Release: September 24, 2013

Drew Lambert, Pharm.D., and new faculty member in the School of Pharmacy, presented “Agreement of Online Drug Information Resources”, during the Short Oral presentation of the Pharmacy Information Section at the 2013 FIP World Conference. The FIP Conference was held in Dublin, Ireland August 31st to September 5th, 2013. Dr. Lambert’s study did a comparison of different drug interaction resources of freely available online drug interaction databases. While no statistically significant differences were noted in the databases correctly noting the presence of an interaction, there were significant differences in the databases classifying the interaction as a contraindication. It is important that practitioners and patients are aware of the discrepancies and consider the accuracy of their drug information resources.
