REVIEW
Alla El-Awaisi, Sundari Joseph, Maguy Saffouh El Hajj, Lesley Diack
INTRODUCTION: Pharmacists are key professionals in the collaborative working process and are integral members of the healthcare team. However, there is paucity of information regarding their perspectives towards interprofessional education (IPE) and collaborative practice. AIMS: The aim of this systematic review is to synthesize, summarise and evaluate the quality of the quantitative and qualitative literature related to the perspectives of pharmacy students, pharmacy faculty and practising pharmacists toward IPE and collaborative practice...

REVIEW
Joshua D Niznik, Harvey He, Sandra L Kane-Gill
BACKGROUND: Utilization of telemedicine allows pharmacists to extend the reach of clinical interventions, connecting them with patients and providers, but the overall impact of these services is under-studied. OBJECTIVE: Identify the impact of clinical pharmacist telemedicine interventions on clinical outcomes, subsequently defined as clinical disease management, patient self-management, and adherence, in outpatient or ambulatory settings. METHODS: A literature search was conducted from database inception through May 2016 in Medline, SCOPUS, and EMBASE...

BACKGROUND: The evidence-based heart failure (HF) drug treatment is made of a β-blocker and an angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor or an angiotensin II receptor blocker, or hydralazine + isosorbide dinitrate. Little is known about sex-based difference in adherence to the evidence-based HF drug treatment. OBJECTIVES: To assess among new users of the evidence-based HF drug treatment, the association between sex and 1) persistence with the treatment 1 year after its initiation, 2) implementation of the treatment among those who persisted, and 3) overall adherence to treatment in the year following its initiation...

BACKGROUND: COPD is characterised by a progressive airflow limitation in the lungs. However, adherence to therapy improves management of symptoms and delays disease progression. Therefore, patients' knowledge and awareness about the disease are important. Hence, pharmacist-led educational interventions could achieve this and improve medication adherence. OBJECTIVE: This study evaluated the effectiveness of a clinical pharmacist-led intervention on medication adherence in COPD patients in a teaching hospital...

BACKGROUND: The scope of pharmacist practice has expanded in many jurisdictions, including Nova Scotia, Canada, to include prescribing of medications. OBJECTIVE: To identify the relationship between barriers and facilitators to pharmacist prescribing and self-reported prescribing activity using the Theoretical Domains Framework version 2 (TDF(v2)). METHODS: The study was a self-administered electronic survey of all registered pharmacists (approximately 1300) in Nova Scotia, Canada...

BACKGROUND: Specialty medications include innovative drugs and biologic agents requiring special handling and close monitoring. Although specialty medications have been widely used for various chronic conditions, increased use of these medications has contributed a growing share of total health care expenditures. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to examine patient characteristics related to specialty medication use. METHODS: Using Medical Expenditure Panel Survey (MEPS) data from 2000 through 2013, this study identified U...

Kheng Yong Ong, Wing Lam Chung, Kaysar Mamun, Li Li Chen
Even while pharmacy practice evolves to a more patient-centric mode of practice, local hospitals, due to high patient load as well as space and resource constraints, find it challenging to conduct thorough medication review and physical medication reconciliation for all patients. In light of this, optimizing the local current healthcare system to involve community pharmacists in the care of patients from public hospitals could potentially better cater to the healthcare needs of the older population. Due to easy accessibility, community pharmacies are often the first point of contact in the healthcare system...

#10
Timothy P Frost, Alex J Adams
Four states have created advanced practice pharmacist designations in state law: advanced practice pharmacist (California), clinical pharmacist practitioner (Montana and North Carolina), and pharmacist clinician (New Mexico). To attain an advanced pharmacist designation, states typically require a fee and set a minimum education requirement either through continuing pharmacy education (CPE) or through attainment of a national certification or completion of a residency. Once attained, pharmacists may practice with additional scope of practice authorities, namely the ability to order and interpret drug therapy-related tests, and initiate or adjust/modify medications under a collaborative practice agreement (CPA)...

#11
Lutfun N Hossain, Jacqueline Tudball, Lucía Franco-Trigo, Desire Durks, Shalom I Benrimoj, Daniel Sabater-Hernández
BACKGROUND: A key early step to enhance the integration of community pharmacy services (CPSs) into primary care practice is identifying key determinants of practice (i.e., critical circumstances that influence the implementation of such services). Involving relevant stakeholders in identifying key determinants enables findings to be more relevant to the context in which CPSs will be implemented. OBJECTIVE: To identify key determinants of practice that can influence the implementation of government-funded CPSs in a primary health network in Australia...

Ott Laius, Heti Pisarev, Daisy Volmer, Sulev Kõks, Aare Märtson, Katre Maasalu
BACKGROUND: Medication adherence can be divided into primary and secondary adherence. Primary medication non-adherence (PMN) occurs when a patient does not obtain medicine with their initial prescription. Secondary non-adherence measures prescription refills among patients who previously filled their first prescription. While secondary non-adherence has been studied thoroughly, PMN has been assessed less extensively, due to lack of available data. Estonian ePrescription system might prove a valuable tool for this...

BACKGROUND: The internet is widely and increasingly used to search for health information. Previous studies have focused mainly on health information on the internet and not specifically on medicines information (MI). OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to explore the internet as a source of MI compared to other sources of MI; to identify those who use the internet as a source of MI; and to describe patterns of use of the internet as a source of MI. METHODS: A cross-sectional design employed a web-based questionnaire posted by patients' and other organizations as well as pharmacies on their websites during six weeks in the beginning of 2014...

BACKGROUND: Recommending effective minor ailment treatments and using non-prescription or over-the-counter (OTC) medicines is a pharmacist's duty. Although common in most European countries, self-medication counseling practices may differ from country to country. OBJECTIVES: This study explored Turkish community pharmacists' attitudes concerning the present self-medication market, professional responsibilities toward patients' self-care, and the usefulness of e-learning for patients' counseling education...

BACKGROUND: Various factors influence decision making in over-the-counter (OTC) medicine consultations, yet limited studies have focused, in-depth, on the thought process of pharmacy staff. This includes pharmacy students as pharmacists-in-training. AIM: To explore the factors that influence pharmacy students' decisions in relation to OTC consultations and choice of OTC medicine/s. METHODS: Semi-structured interviews using the critical incident technique were undertaken with ten pharmacy students in Australia, who also worked as part-time pharmacy staff...

BACKGROUND: Productive faculty are key to generating new knowledge and advancing pharmacy practice. The work environments of academic pharmacists are critical to their vitality, commitment, and longevity. OBJECTIVES: To (1) identify correlates of faculty scholarly productivity and teaching effectiveness, considering personal and environmental characteristics; (2) determine the relationship between a faculty's perception of organizational citizenship behaviors they witness with the organizational culture of their employing college/school of pharmacy; and (3) describe the relationship between organizational climate, job satisfaction, and commitment of academic pharmacists...

BACKGROUND: The level of job satisfaction among practicing pharmacists is important because it has been found to affect job performance and employee turnover.
