BACKGROUND: Medication management is commonly performed by informal caregivers, yet they are often unprepared and ill-equipped to manage complex medication regimens for their older adult care recipients. In order to develop interventions that will enhance the caregiver's ability to safely and confidently manage medications, it is critical to first understand caregiver challenges and unmet needs related to medication management. OBJECTIVES: To explore how informal caregivers manage medications for their older adult care recipients by identifying the activities involved in medication management and the tools or strategies used to facilitate these activities...

BACKGROUND: Internationally there is an increasing focus on the clinical and cognitive services that pharmacists can provide. Lack of time has been identified as a barrier to pharmacists increasing their clinical activities. Within the pharmacy workplace there are many tasks that can only be performed by a pharmacist. The final accuracy check of a dispensed prescription is currently the sole responsibility of pharmacists in New Zealand. This takes up a significant amount of time during a pharmacist's work day...

Pharmacy has a long history of providing products and services for healthcare. In the last century, these roles have taken a strong focus on clinical care with the provision of medicines review, medicines optimisation, and prescribing services being at the forefront. The profession, however, is diverse. Pharmacists operate across a wide range of healthcare practices that often embrace both historic and contemporary roles simultaneously. The purpose of this article is to provide an overarching philosophical framework for pharmacy that encompasses roles that the modern pharmacist may assume...

BACKGROUND: Self-determination theory (SDT) provides a model to improve pharmacy students' well-being or functioning in their study context. According to SDT, students need a context that satisfies their needs for autonomy, relatedness and competence in order to function optimally. Contextual factors that could have an impact on a student's functioning are lecturers, family, peers and workload. OBJECTIVES: To investigate whether there is a difference between the contributions family, lecturers, peers and workload make towards the satisfaction of pharmacy students' basic psychological needs within a university context...

BACKGROUND: Point-of-care testing (POCT) is a specialty of laboratory medicine that occurs at the bedside or near the patient when receiving health services. Despite its clinical utility, POCT implementation in the community pharmacy setting is slow due to uncertainty about the market for this novel service and remuneration for services rendered. OBJECTIVE: To identify 1) demographics and 2) willingness-to-pay preferences of the market niche of consumers who prefer to receive POCT services in the community pharmacy...

BACKGROUND: A non-dispensing pharmacist conducts clinical pharmacy services aimed at optimizing patients individual pharmacotherapy. Embedding a non-dispensing pharmacist in primary care practice enables collaboration, probably enhancing patient care. The degree of integration of non-dispensing pharmacists into multidisciplinary health care teams varies strongly between settings. The degree of integration may be a determinant for its success. OBJECTIVES: This study investigates how the degree of integration of a non-dispensing pharmacist impacts medication related health outcomes in primary care...

PURPOSE: Border-Crossing theory suggests work-life balance and career satisfaction are inter-related and disappointment in work-life balance may predict changes in one's career path. Application of this theory to health profession faculty is plausible but has not been fully explored. The purpose of this study is to examine factors related to reported career change intention among United States pharmacy school faculty and to determine if Border-Crossing theory fits these observations. METHODS: Results from a national web-based survey administered via Qualtrics(®) to American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy (AACP) members were utilized...

BACKGROUND: With the introduction of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Stars Measure program has come a greater expectation of Medication Therapy Management (MTM) services from community pharmacies. To meet the growing demand of these services, pharmacies have sought out various methods of engaging pharmacists to provide MTM. Barriers for completing MTM include inadequate time to complete the services, insufficient staffing, lack of sufficient compensation, billing difficulty, lack of interest among patients (including refusing MTM services when offered), inadequate training/experience, and lack of support from management...
