OBJECTIVES: To determine if adding a clinical pharmacist to the cardiac arrest team in a documenter role improves completeness of documentation and quality of advanced cardiovascular life support (ACLS). SETTING: A 1541-bed, tertiary care, academic medical center with an integrated clinical pharmacy practice model. PRACTICE DESCRIPTION: In 2012, we identified documentation of resuscitation activities during cardiac arrest events and compliance with published ACLS guidelines as opportunities for systematic quality improvement at our tertiary care academic medical center...

BACKGROUND: With an increasing prevalence of psychotropic polypharmacy, clinicians depend on drug-drug interaction (DDI) references to ensure safe regimens, but the consistency of such information is frequently questioned. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the consistency of psychotropic DDIs documented in Clinical Pharmacology (CP), Micromedex (MM), and Lexicomp (LC) and summarize consistent psychotropic DDIs. METHODS: In May 2016, we extracted severe or major psychotropic DDIs for 102 psychotropic drugs, including central nervous system (CNS) stimulants, antidepressants, an antimanic agent (lithium), antipsychotics, anticonvulsants, and anxiolytics-sedatives-hypnotics from CP, MM, and LC...

OBJECTIVES: The primary objective of this report is to describe a quality improvement practice designed to identify and categorize potentially preventable medication-related hospital admissions. The secondary objective is to present data collected from this practice and describe how it was used to improve a pharmacist intervention focused on reducing medication-related readmissions. SETTING: This practice was developed as part of the quality improvement system supporting a pharmacist-led care transition model that was implemented across rural and urban counties in Hawaii...

OBJECTIVE: The states of California and Massachusetts are leading the effort to prohibit the sale of tobacco products in pharmacies in the United States. The process of adopting these tobacco-free pharmacy laws remains understudied. This study qualitatively explores the process of adopting and enforcing tobacco-free pharmacy laws. METHODS: Researchers performed qualitative semistructured telephone interviews with 23 key informants who were involved in the effort to adopt and implement tobacco-free pharmacy laws in California and Massachusetts...

BACKGROUND: Improving medication management is an important component of comprehensive care coordination for health systems. The Managing Your Medication for Education and Daily Support (MyMeds) medication management program at the University of California Los Angeles addresses medication management issues by embedding trained clinical pharmacists in primary care practice teams. OBJECTIVES: The aim of this work was to examine and explore physician opinions about the clinical pharmacist program and identify common themes among physician experiences as well as barriers to integration of clinical pharmacists into primary care practice teams...

OBJECTIVES: The objectives of this project are 1) to describe aspirin use for primary prevention in an underserved, minority population; 2) to determine the impact of a pharmacist-led intervention on the prevalence of aspirin use for primary prevention; and 3) to compare aspirin indications based on Framingham Risk Score (FRS) and atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) risk score. METHODS: Men and women age 45-79 and 55-79 years, respectively, without ASCVD were screened for aspirin use...

OBJECTIVES: To identify which states currently have substance use disorder (SUD) programs to facilitate the return of pharmacy professionals (including technicians, interns, and student pharmacists) to active practice, to identify the operational structures used by the states in providing these services and compare them with those reported previously, and to compile the most current and accurate contact information for each state SUD program.

OBJECTIVES: Diabetes prevention interventions are poorly implemented. While health care costs generally increase, 2 factors affect the relative cost of diabetes prevention interventions: the declining cost of metformin (even without insurance) and the new recommendation for vitamin B12 monitoring during metformin treatment. The study's objective was to update the relative health system cost estimate of metformin for diabetes prevention by incorporating the current health system cost of metformin and the cost of addressing potential metformin-associated vitamin B12 deficiency...

OBJECTIVES: Gaps in vaccination coverage leave populations vulnerable to illnesses. Since the 1990s, there has been a growing movement to improve vaccination access by giving pharmacists the authority to administer vaccines according to state laws. Understanding the variation of pharmacist vaccination laws over time is critical to understanding the effect of improving access to vaccination services. METHODS: We identified relevant statutes and regulations with the use of Westlaw legal databases...
