Activity Overview 

Join our expert to discuss the intricacies of a complicated adult meningitis case and review pertinent guidelines, literature, and contemporary clinical evidence. Learners will be guided to challenge their knowledge and review symptoms, clinical presentation, and treatment principles for meningitis through a robust, hands-on case study. This activity is based off of ASHP’s Clinical Skills Competition case that was conducted in the fall of 2023. 

The American Society of Health-System Pharmacists is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education as a provider of continuing pharmacy education with Commendation.

This activity was planned to meet the educational needs of pharmacists and student pharmacists who may interact with or serve patients with meningitis. 

After completing this activity, the learner should be able to…

  • Summarize key principles and current evidence on meningitis.
  • Identify drug therapy efficacy and monitoring parameters to determine appropriate use through evidence-based medicine.
  • Discuss the recommendations for evidence-based, person-centered treatment in a meningitis case. 

  • Introduction and Announcements 

  • Presentation  

  • Questions, Answers, and Discussion
