INTRODUCTION: Topical morphine is a potential treatment option for painful pressure ulcers in hospice and palliative care patients who favor avoidance of systemic opioid therapy. CASE: A 65-year-old male African-American veteran with a painful stage 3 sacral pressure injury was hesitant to take systemic opioids to control his pain, as he wished to stay alert for family and friends. Topical morphine was initiated, and within 24 hours the patient reported a significant reduction in pain on the numeric rating scale...

As patients age, they are predisposed to certain disease states such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Physiologic changes that occur during aging as well as guidelines for treatment must be considered in providing pharmaceutical care for older adults. Preferred treatment options have special considerations in the aging population because of the inability to use certain inhaler devices and medications appropriately. This paper reviews physiologic changes in geriatric adults, COPD treatment, medications that should be avoided in this population, and special considerations for geriatric patients with COPD...

Daniel A Hussar, Laura A Finn
Five new drugs marketed within the last year, which are used for medical problems often experienced by the elderly, have been selected for consideration in this review. The uses and most important properties of these agents are discussed, and a rating for each new drug is determined using the New Drug Comparison Rating system developed by the author (DAH). Advantages, disadvantages, and other important information regarding each new drug are identified and used as the basis for determining the rating. The drugs include an anticoagulant, an antiparkinson agent, an agent for tardive dyskinesia, an agent for psoriasis, and an agent for constipation...

OBJECTIVE: Vaccines are a low-cost, high-impact interventions that effectively and efficiently reduce the burden of infectious diseases. Many rural populations have vaccination rates well below nationally recommended levels. Community pharmacies may offer a solution to this problem. Under a collaborative drug therapy agreement (CDTA), pharmacists can prescribe and administer immunizations. The purpose of this study was to examine pneumococcal vaccine access in rural pharmacies in Eastern Washington state...

Archana Raghavan, Yoshita Paliwal, Patricia W Slattum
As the number of available over-the-counter (OTC) products increases, many older adults are taking health care into their own hands. It is particularly important that the labeling provided with these products is precise, leading to their effective use, especially by older adults. Suboptimally designed medication labels can increase the risk of consumption errors and adverse drug interactions among seniors. This study evaluated whether the warning labels on potentially inappropriate OTC medications are consistent with evidencebased criteria for potentially inappropriate prescribing in older adults...

OBJECTIVE: To develop heart failure (HF) and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) self-management kits in an accountable care organization (ACO) to facilitate patients' self-care and prevent hospital readmissions. SETTING: Pharmacists practice in an outpatient-based ACO. They participate in interprofessional office visits with providers and independently manage maintenance pharmacotherapies. PRACTICE DESCRIPTION: Pharmacists collaborate with an interprofessional team within the ACO including physicians, nurses, case managers, and paramedics...

OBJECTIVE: To review and summarize studies on the effects of denosumab on bone mineral density following the discontinuation of therapy. DATA SOURCES: A search of PubMed (1966-July 2017) and International Pharmaceutical Abstracts (1970-July 2017) was conducted using the Medical Subject Headings (MeSH) terms denosumab, osteoporosis, and withholding treatment in combination with free term searches including the words drug holiday, discontinue, discontin*, and drug discontinuation...

Casandra A Holveck, Jeannette Y Wick
With a population that is increasingly "gray," our nation faces a shortage of primary care providers who specialize in geriatrics. The number of geriatricians per 10,000 adults older than 65 years of age has decreased steadily since 2000. Health care providers from all disciplines (medicine, nursing, and pharmacy) tend not to choose geriatrics as a specialty area. Some are intimidated by the complexity of caring for elderly patients with geriatric syndromes and multiple morbidities. Others, who have little exposure to geriatrics in their undergraduate and graduate programs, are simply unaware of the personal and professional rewards associated with practice in geriatrics...

#18
Yuliana Toderika, Shalonda Williams
With the rise of the opioid epidemic in the United States and increased mortality as a result of opioid overdoses, there have been many national and statewide initiatives to combat this health crisis. Many states have expanded accessibility to naloxone, an opioid-reversal agent. Naloxone is safe, cost-effective, and nonaddictive. In addition, simple administration allows naloxone to be used by patients, family members, caregivers, and bystanders in the event of an opioid overdose. While a great emphasis has been placed on the prescribing practices of health care providers as it pertains to opioid therapy for chronic pain, a new focus has been placed on coprescribing naloxone with opioids for high-risk patients...

Trista Askins Bailey, Sehrish Panjwani
As persons age, their risk of developing late-life depression increases. Older adults not only have an increased risk of late-life depression, but they also have an increased risk of suicidal ideation. Because of these increased risks, it is vital that clinicians be aware of the options available to assist these persons to achieve remission of their symptoms, as well as prevent relapse. Atypical antipsychotics have been considered an augmentation option in younger adults with depression. However, because of the black box warning associated with atypical antipsychotics in older adults with dementia, clinicians often exercise caution when using these agents to help treat late-life depression...
