Summary of Recent Relevant Research:

Dr. Dice incorporated a prospective controlled and blinded study of antibiotic dispensing accuracy into a regional emergency preparedness exercise. The exercise simulated dispensing emergency prophylactic antibiotics to workers exposed to anthrax spores. Algorithms were provided to volunteers who were asked to properly provide the correct antibiotic to people with various medical conditions and/or who were taking common prescription medications. Volunteers were able to dispense correctly in 99.5% of cases.
