Expertise

Dr. Zaoutis' research focuses on healthcare-acquired infections and antibiotic resistance. Within the area of healthcare-acquired infections, he is particularly interested on fungal infections. His work also focuses on pediatric pharmacoepidemiology as it relates to the judicious use of antimicrobial agents (antimicrobial stewardship) in both the hospital and ambulatory care. Finally, Dr. Zaoutis is Associate Director of the Center for Pediatric Clinical Effectiveness Research at the Children?s Hospital of Philadelphia. The center promotes research on how to best manage pediatric illness, disseminates knowledge gained from research, and partners with other groups to implement best practices to improve the quality of care delivered to children.

Infectious Diseases, Pediatrics, Pharmacoepidemiology

Dr. Zaoutis? research focuses on healthcare-acquired infections and antibiotic resistance. He is investigating the epidemiology of fungal infections in children with a specific focus on how antibiotics may affect the risk of developing candidemia. Furthermore, he is investigating the emergence of extended-spectrum beta lactamase producing organisms and community-acquired methcillin-resistant S. aureus in children. Finally, Dr. Zaoutis is studying patterns of antibiotic use in hospitalized children and the potential impact of antimicrobial stewardship programs on antibiotic utilization.
