AzNA decided early on in the state Action Coalition formation process that we wanted to be a part of the AZAC
AzAC workgroups also reported on their progress in meeting the IOM goals during each session.
The Arizona Action Coalition, (AzAC) originally formed as a state-based exploratory group in 2010, when the IOM report and recommendations were introduced to the nation.
Please consider joining AZAC as a member if you have not already.
AzAC joins 48 other states working to transform health care through nursing by mobilizing coalitions representing nurses, other health providers, consumers, educators and businesses.
AzAC lacks funding for such a position and therefore relies on core volunteers for accomplishing the work of the organization.
Effect of short-term treatment with azithromycin on recurrent ischaemic events in patients with acute coronary syndrome in the Azithromvein in Acute Coronary Syndrome (AZACS) trial: a randomised controlled trial.

The incidence of clinical events in the 80% of AZACS participants who had positive titers for C.
Anderson said that although AZACS and WIZARD certainly don't provide any basis for routinely prescribing antibiotic therapy to prevent coronary events, they don't bury the underlying hypothesis, either.
Ongoing subanalyses of both trials, however, are expected to reveal specific groups of patients who might benefit from such therapy And, researchers are still awaiting the results of two other pending trials--one with a longer duration of treatment than WIZARD or AZACS, the other using a different antibiotic.
Confounding is another possibility, since 70% of the patients in AZACS and two-thirds in WIZARD were taking statins, which have anti-inflammatory effects that may have obscured the antibiotic benefit.
