Welcome to the ED PharmD blog!

My name is Craig Cocchio and I am an emergency medicine pharmacist.  I've created this blog to accomplish a few goals.
1- To describe the activities of pharmacists practicing in the emergency department
2- Share the experiences and knowledge of an established emergency medicine pharmacy team
3- Create an open forum for discussion of all things emergency medicine, of course, focusing on medications
4- Complement the various (and excellent) emergency medicine and toxicology blogs out there

I'll reflect these goals by filling the pages and posts of this blog with everything from pharmacy pearls, new and old drug reviews to medication safety musings.
