OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the net clinical benefit of tranexamic acid use in patients undergoing total knee or total hip replacement. METHODS: This is a retrospective study of patients undergoing total knee or total hip replacement. The primary outcome was the net clinical benefit of tranexamic acid use. Secondary outcomes included length of stay, incidence of venous thromboembolism, change in hemoglobin, and number of units of blood transfused. RESULTS: Four hundred and six patients were screened for inclusion and 327 patients met inclusion criteria; 174 patients received tranexamic acid versus 153 patients who received usual care...

Potentially inappropriate medications (PIMs) have been associated with poor outcomes in older adults. Electronic health record (EHR)-based interventions may be an effective way to reduce PIM prescribing. The main objective of this study was to evaluate changes in PIM prescribing to older adult veterans ≥65 years old in the ambulatory care setting preimplementation and postimplementation of medication alert messages at the point of computerized provider order entry (CPOE). Additional exploratory objectives included evaluating provider type and patient-provider relationship as a factor for change in PIM prescribing...

BACKGROUND: The 2013 Cholesterol Guidelines include a new atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) risk calculator that determines the 10-year risk of coronary heart disease and/or stroke. The applicability of this calculator and its predecessor, the Framingham risk score (FRS) in Adult Treatment Panel (ATP) III, has been limited in patients with HIV. The objective of this study was to compare the risk scores of ASCVD and FRS in the initiation of statin therapy in patients with HIV...

INTRODUCTION: Ensuring a culture that prioritizes and implements patient safety requires educating all future health care professionals to prepare them for their active role in reducing medical errors. There is limited literature describing integration of patient safety education into the curriculum of health care professionals, including pharmacists. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the perceived benefit of integrating patient safety education into a pharmacy curriculum. METHODS: Second-year pharmacy students (P2s) completed a patient safety self-study, followed by in-class and experiential application of a root cause analysis (RCA)...

OBJECTIVES: To report perceptions of PharmD candidates regarding a behind-the-counter (BTC) class of medications and to identify perceived barriers to its successful implementation. METHODS: PharmD candidates in their second, third, and fourth professional years were invited to complete an online survey. Responses were used to assess perceptions of competency and willingness to participate in a BTC program and perceived preparedness of the current community pharmacy practice environment for a BTC class of medications with regard to 8 specific classes of medications...

PURPOSE: Coagulopathy resulting from chronic liver disease (CLD) creates uncertainty regarding the risks and efficacy of pharmacologic venous thromboembolism (VTE) prophylaxis (ppx). We aim to describe patient characteristics associated with VTE ppx and the clinical impact of ppx in hospitalized patients with CLD. METHODS: This retrospective study included patients with CLD, an international normalized ratio (INR) of ≥1.3, and hospital stay of ≥72 hours. Baseline characteristics, incidence of VTE, and major bleeding were compared between patients given ppx and those not given ppx...

OBJECTIVES: The objective of this study was to explore patient perceptions and the practical implication of using a brief 9-item scale to screen for medication-related problems in community pharmacies. METHODS: Semistructured, audio-recorded, telephonic interviews were conducted with 40 patients who completed the scale and reviewed its results with their pharmacist. Audio recordings were transcribed verbatim and analyzed using qualitative methods to identify themes...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the impact of a student pharmacist-run targeted medication intervention (TMI) program. METHODS: Student pharmacists in their third professional year resolved TMIs at 5 independent pharmacies under the supervision of a pharmacist. A claims report of completed TMIs from the medication therapy management (MTM) platform, which captured the category and outcome of the TMIs and the estimated cost avoidance (ECA) level, was analyzed using descriptive statistics...

The uptake of generic immunosuppressants lags comparatively to other drug classes, despite that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) uses identical bioequivalence standards for all drugs. Transplant societies acknowledge the cost savings associated with generic immunosuppressants and support their use following heart, lung, kidney, or bone marrow transplantation. Seven studies of the pharmacokinetics or clinical efficacy of generic mycophenolate mofetil compared to the innovator product are published; all studies and products were ex-United States...

BACKGROUND: Cefepime and meropenem are used frequently in hospitalized patients for broad-spectrum empiric coverage, however, practitioners are often reluctant to prescribe these antibiotics for patients with a self-reported nonsevere, nontype I allergic reaction to penicillin. METHODS: Retrospective review of electronic medical records of adults with a self-reported allergy to penicillin who received at least 1 dose of cefepime, ceftriaxone, cefoxitin, cephalexin, or meropenem to assess incidence and type of allergic reactions...

This cross-sectional study enrolled 180 patients at a private family practice in Virginia. Total serum vitamin D concentrations were obtained weekly from January 30, 2013, through March 30, 2013, in consecutive patients regularly scheduled for laboratory work at the practice. Patients were categorized into 2 groups and analyzed for variant alleles in vitamin D receptor ( VDR; rs2228570), cytochrome P450 2R1 ( CYP2R1; rs10741657), 7-dehydrocholesterol reductase ( DHCR7; rs12785878), and group-specific component ( GC; rs2282679) to determine whether variants of those alleles influenced total serum 25(OH)D concentrations...
