This project's goal is to build an exemplar framework that implements core components of the new knowledge representation paradigm for potential drug-drug interactions that I hypothesize will yield more clinically relevant evidence than is currently possible. My role is Principal Investigator on this multi-site project. I manage four working groups focusing on different aspects of the project which include 1) deriving a new potential drug-drug interaction (PDDI) meta-data standard that can meet the information needs of pharmacist working in different care settings, 2) applying a novel evidence synthesis process to enhance product label PDDI information, and 3) testing innovative methods for PDDI information retrieval.
