My clinical pharmacy research interests include: anemia and bone disease management in the chronic kidney disease (CKD) population, specifically investigating newer agents being utilized to treat these disease states and protocol driven practices. Another area of my pharmacy practice research in nephrology is vascular access. Areas of research include access related infections, specifically understanding infection rates, organisms involved and locking devices for catheters and their clinical outcomes. Furthermore, dialysis modalities have evolved and the pharmacokinetics of drugs has also changed. Therefore much of my research has focused on drug clearance with these newer modalities. Lastly, another area of my research is pharmacy practice research. Here we have investigated different pharmacy services for the dialysis patient and outcomes. I have been the lead investigator on a number of research projects in these areas. Please refer to list of publications for the scope of my clinical research.
