Bonnie Falcione, PharmD, recently received a secondary promotion to the rank of Associate Professor of Medicine in the ID Division. Bonnie joined our Division in 2006 as a member of the Antibiotic Management Program serving in the role of Clinical Pharmacist. Since that time, Bonnie has collaborated closely Dr. Hong Nguyen, Director of the Transplant Infectious Diseases and Antimicrobial Management Program, to co-implement a collaborative practice agreement based pharmacist monitoring program for patients receiving IV antibiotics upon hospital discharge via the Outpatient Parenteral Antibiotic Therapy (OPAT) program. Bonnie focuses on identifying strategies to prevent and treat infectious diseases in critically ill patients as well as those at risk for critical illness due to the onset of infection or a complication of treating the infection, in particular, those due to antimicrobial resistant organisms. She places particular emphasis on the use of available resources to improve empiric drug selection, dosing, and monitoring strategies for agents with high toxicity potential (e.g., vancomycin, colistin, aminoglycosides, nafcillin). She also seeks to identify concurrent drug therapies that may increase the risk of infections in these criticality ill patients or those at risk of becoming critically ill. Bonnie is a devoted and trusted colleague of our entire Antibiotic Management Team. She continues to promote dynamic interaction among faculty within the Division of Infectious Diseases and the Department of Pharmacy and Therapeutics.
