BACKGROUND: Recognizing the potential effect of sex and gender on health outcomes, there is a shift toward conducting sex and gender-based analysis (SGBA) within health research. However, little is known about the extent to which SGBA has been incorporated into pharmacy practice research. OBJECTIVES: To understand the extent to which SGBA is included in pharmacy practice research. METHOD: Scoping review of English-language studies identified through MEDLINE, Embase, International Pharmacy Abstracts (IPA), and CINAHL (inception to Jan 2014)...

BACKGROUND: Adverse drug events (ADEs) cause considerable costs in hospitals. However, little is known about costs caused by ADEs outside hospitals, effects on productivity, and how the costs are distributed among payers. OBJECTIVE: To describe the direct and indirect costs caused by ADEs, and their distribution among payers. Furthermore, to describe the distribution of patient out-of-pocket costs and lost productivity caused by ADEs according to socio-economic characteristics...

Bruno Charpiat, Pierrick Bedouch, Michel Tod, Benoit Allenet
Over the past 25 years in various countries, researchers have developed tools for recording pharmacist's interventions (PIs) and observational databases aimed at the exhaustive collection of these interventions. The large amount of published data contrasts strikingly with the fact that little attention has been paid to defining the different types of PIs from a theoretical point of view. Whatever the paper we read on this topic, each PI is presented as necessary and appropriate. We suggest this customary approach is biased and that the reality is somewhat more subtle...

BACKGROUND: Within 30 days of hospital discharge, heart failure (HF) readmission rates nationally accumulate to more than 20%. Due to this high rate of unplanned re-hospitalization, predictive models are needed to identify patients who pose the highest readmission risk. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the diagnosis and timing and to identify patient and clinical characteristics associated with 30 day readmissions among HF patients. METHODS: A retrospective analysis of electronic health records was conducted to study HF admissions during the period October 2008 to November 2014...

Jennifer Bhuiyan, Lauren Jonkman, Sharon Connor, Vincent Giannetti
BACKGROUND: Smoking is highly prevalent in the substance use population and trials of smoking cessation among patients actively receiving treatment for substance use disorder have yielded modest quit rates. However, smoking cessation is not routinely provided due to the ungrounded belief it will interfere with recovery from the primary substance use problem. OBJECTIVES: The objective of this qualitative study was to determine the perceptions of smoking cessation in a substance use population...

REVIEW
Trong Quy Le, Lorraine Smith, Joanna Harnett
BACKGROUND: Biologically-based complementary medicines (BB-CMs) including herbal, vitamin, mineral and nutritional supplements are frequently taken by people living with cancer. Pharmacists play an important and clearly defined role in the provision of standard cancer treatment. Due to the non-prescription status and easy access to BB-CMs, the role of the pharmacist in communicating to people living with cancer about their use is less clearly defined. AIM: To explore the role of the pharmacist in communicating to people living with cancer about their use of BB-CMs...

Kenneth C Hohmeier, Sharon L K McDonough, Junling Wang
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 established clinical utility and consumer demand in the community pharmacy, the implementation of POCT within this setting has remained modest for a variety of reasons. One possible solution to this problem is the concept of co-creation - the partnership between consumer and manufacturer in the development of value for a service or device...

Muna S Murad, Judith A Spiers, Lisa M Guirguis
BACKGROUND: A collaborative patient-pharmacist interaction is fundamental to greater patient satisfaction with pharmacy care and improved medication adherence. Effective pharmacist-patient communication occurs when both pharmacist and patient are able to successfully attend to not only the typical tasks and goals of the interaction but also basic face needs that underlie all social interaction; autonomy, competence or esteem, and fellowship. Addressing face needs occurs through conventional and strategic communication strategies that respond to the emerging needs throughout an interaction...

BACKGROUND: Despite the benefits of improving transitions across care, literature is very limited on inpatient "Communication about Medicines" (ComMed) by staff across United States (U.S.) hospitals. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate ComMed quality variations by hospital characteristics. METHODS: In a cross-sectional, retrospective study of publicly available U.S. Medicare's Hospital Consumer Assessment of Health Care Plans Survey (HCAHPS) data (January 2013-September 2014), ComMed quality (high = above average/excellent vs...

Medicines information leaflets can equip patients to be in control of their own healthcare and support the safe and effective use of medicines. The design and content of leaflets influences patients' willingness to read them, and poor examples can cause patient confusion and anxiety. Researchers examined the literature over the past 8 years to determine the content and design of medicine information leaflets that patients prefer in order to read, understand, and use them effectively. It was found that existing leaflets do not meet patients' needs and appear ineffective...

BACKGROUND: Throughout Nigeria malaria is an endemic disease. Efforts to treat malaria can also be combined with other illnesses including pneumonia and diarrhea, which are killing children under five years of age. The use of Rapid Diagnostic Test (RDT) aids early diagnosis of malaria and informs when other illnesses should be considered. Those with positive RDT results should be treated with Artemisinin-based Combination Therapy (ACTs), while those with negative RDTs results are further investigated for pneumonia and diarrhea...

BACKGROUND: Quality of life (QoL) assessment provides valuable outcome to support clinical decision-making, particularly for patients with chronic diseases that are incurable. A brief, 15-item diabetes-specific tool [i.e. Diabetes Quality of Life-Brief Clinical Inventory (DQoL-BCI)] is known to be developed in English and validated for use in clinical practice. This simplified tool, however, is not readily available for use in the Malaysian setting. OBJECTIVE: To translate the DQoL-BCI into a Malaysian version and to assess its construct validity (factorial validity, convergent validity and discriminant validity), reliability (internal consistency) and floor and ceiling effects among the Malaysian diabetic population...
