METHODS: A 28-item questionnaire was sent to experienced pharmacy practitioners affiliated with 4 schools of pharmacy. In addition to demographic information about education, training, credentials, and practice setting, participants were asked whether each EPA statement was pertinent to pharmacy practice and an expected activity that all pharmacists should be able to perform...

PURPOSE: An interprofessional initiative to operationalize outpatient naloxone prescribing at a large academic medical center is described. SUMMARY: The initiative was carried out by a work group of clinical pharmacists and pharmacy administrators in collaboration with physicians and nursing staff leaders from multiple practice settings. An opioid overdose risk-assessment guide was developed on the basis of literature review and expert opinion. An institutional policy to guide identification of high-risk patient populations and facilitate naloxone prescribing and dispensing was developed and vetted by multiple expert committees...

Parenteral nutrition (PN) is a complex therapeutic modality provided to neonates, children, and adults for various indications. Surveys have shown that current electronic health record (EHR) systems are in need of functionality enhancement for safe and optimal delivery of PN. This is a consensus statement from the American Society for Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition, the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, and the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists outlining some of the key challenges to prescribing, order review/verification, compounding, and administration of PN using EHRs today and is a call to action for clinicians and vendors to optimize their EHRs regarding the PN build and workflow...

PURPOSE: Results of a study comparing readmission rates and medication adherence measures before and after implementation of a pharmacy-led transitions-of-care (TOC) program are reported. METHODS: A quasi-experimental case-control study was conducted to assess the impact of a TOC program including medication history-taking and reconciliation services, inpatient and discharge education, and 72-hour and 30-day postdischarge phone follow-up. Hospital and emergency room (ER) readmission rates were compared in cohorts of oncology patients admitted to a large teaching hospital during specified periods before TOC program implementation (the standard-of-care [SOC] group) or after program implementation (the TOC group)...

Ashley E Woodruff, Margaret M Wovkulich, Bryan T Mogle, Amany K Hassan
PURPOSE: Results of an investigation of the pharmacodynamic effect of rivaroxaban anticoagulation, as measured by prothrombin time (PT), on bleeding risk and other outcomes in hospitalized patients are reported. METHODS: In a single-center retrospective cohort study, adult inpatients who had a PT measured within 24 hours after rivaroxaban administration during a designated 23-month period were identified. Patients who experienced in-hospital bleeding events were compared with those who did not...

PURPOSE: Construction and validation of a fall risk prediction model specific to inpatients receiving fall risk-increasing drugs (FRIDs) are described. METHODS: In a retrospective cohort study of 75,036 admissions to 2 hospitals over a designated 22-month period that involved FRID exposure during the first 5 hospital days, factors influencing fall risk were investigated via logistic regression. The resultant risk prediction model was internally validated and its performance compared with that of a model based on Morse Fall Scale (MFS) scores...

PURPOSE: The development of a compounded oral liquid medication formulary and subsequent implementation of revised standard formulations in a university health system are described. METHODS: A standard assessment form was developed to direct evaluation of published literature and current compounding resources for all oral liquid formulations prepared by health-system pharmacies. Specific variables reviewed included concentration, components, beyond-use dating, and storage recommendations...

PURPOSE: The utility of a transitions-of-care (TOC) pharmacist intervention focused on improving the quality and safety of the medication process for high-risk cardiovascular patients was evaluated. METHODS: A quality-improvement initiative was developed for patients with heart failure or acute coronary syndrome followed longitudinally at a hospital's outpatient cardiovascular clinic. The TOC pharmacist intervention occurred either before a patient's outpatient cardiovascular clinic appointment or during a hospitalization...

PURPOSE: Results of a pilot project to improve the safety and efficiency of the discharge process by adding daily pharmacist review and preparation of discharge medication orders to an existing discharge medication reconciliation workflow are reported. SUMMARY: Due to patient capacity issues, the pharmacy department of a large tertiary medical center implemented changes to the existing medication discharge workflow. A steering committee was established, with subgroups responsible for workflow development, electronic medical record enhancement, and data collection designated...

PURPOSE: The implementation and optimization of molecular rapid diagnostic tests (mRDTs) as an antimicrobial stewardship intervention for patients with bloodstream infections (BSIs) are reviewed. SUMMARY: All U.S. acute care hospitals accredited by the Joint Commission are required to implement an antimicrobial stewardship program (ASP). Of the many interventions available to ASPs, mRDTs have demonstrated consistent, meaningful results on antimicrobial optimization and patient outcomes...

PURPOSE: An initiative to implement patient-centered medication labeling at 4 pharmacies within a publicly funded safety-net healthcare system is described. SUMMARY: Medication nonadherence negatively affects patient outcomes and safety. Nonadherence has been attributed to poor understanding of instructions on medication labels. Research has demonstrated that patient-centered labeling (PCL) can improve adherence and produce safer medication-taking practices. As part of a mixed-methods study by a safety-net health system, audits of nearly 9,000 prescription labels generated at 4 pharmacy sites, as well as interviews with 6 stakeholder informants, were conducted to determine PCL adoption rates and factors contributing to success...

PURPOSE: The results of the 2017 ASHP national survey of pharmacy practice in hospital settings are described. METHODS: Pharmacy directors at 4,828 general and children's medical- surgical hospitals in the United States were surveyed using a mixed-mode method of contact by mail and e-mail. Survey completion was online, using Qualtrics (Qualtrics, Provo, UT). IMS Health supplied data on hospital characteristics; the survey sample was drawn from the IMS hospital database (IMS Health, Yardley, PA)...

PURPOSE: Current literature on clinical controversies surrounding the use of thrombolytic agents in patients with intermediate-risk pulmonary embolism (PE) is reviewed. SUMMARY: PE is a major cause of morbidity and mortality. When used in conjunction with anticoagulation, thrombolysis has been shown to reduce hemodynamic decompensation in select patients, but thrombolytic therapy is associated with high risks of bleeding and intracranial hemorrhage and its role in treating patients with intermediate-risk PE remains controversial...
