BACKGROUND: The impact of collaborative and multidisciplinary health care on the outcomes of care in patients with acute coronary syndromes (ACS) is well-established in the literature. However, there is lack of high quality evidence on the role of pharmacist care in this setting. OBJECTIVE: This systematic review aimed to evaluate the impact of pharmacist care on patient outcomes (readmission, mortality, emergency visits, and medication adherence) in patients with ACS at or post-discharge...

BACKGROUND: Community pharmacists play a significant role in the provision of non-prescription medicines. There is evidence that women self-medicate and use non-prescription medicines whilst breastfeeding. Studies have demonstrated that breastfeeding women are likely to seek advice from pharmacists, presenting a unique opportunity for pharmacists to provide on-going support of these women especially in relation to the appropriate use of non-prescription medicines. OBJECTIVES: This study aimed to explore community pharmacists' attitudes and perspectives towards the use of non-prescription medicines during breastfeeding...

There is a substantial gap between the generation of new knowledge and its widespread incorporation into routine clinical practice, including the medication use process. Principles of dissemination and implementation sciences, if fully embraced by clinicians and researchers, have the potential of improving healthcare effectiveness, efficiency, quality, and safety. This commentary is a call to action for member-driven professional organizations in pharmacy to serve their members and the profession by proactively and strategically leading efforts to develop pharmacist's abilities to incorporate principles of dissemination and implementation sciences into their practice...

The provision of professional pharmacy services has been heralded as the professional and the economic future of pharmacy. There are different phases involved in a service creation including service design, impact evaluation, implementation and sustainability. The two first phases have been subject to extensive research. In the last years the principles of Implementation science have been applied in pharmacy to study the initial uptake and integration of evidence-based services into routine practice. However, little attention has been paid to the sustainability of those services, during which there is a continued use of the service previously implemented to achieve and sustain long-term outcomes...

INTRODUCTION: Community pharmacists are well placed and evidence clearly demonstrates that they can be suitably trained to deliver professional services that improve the management of asthma patients in clinical, economic and humanistic terms. However the gap between this evidence and practice reality remains wide. In this study we measure the implementation process as well as the service benefits of an asthma service model. METHODS: Using an effectiveness-implementation hybrid design, a defined implementation process (progression from Exploration through Preparation and Testing to Operation stages) supporting an asthma service (promoting asthma control and inhaler technique) was tested in 17 community pharmacies across metropolitan Sydney...

BACKGROUND: There is no gold standard outcome assessment for asthma first-aid knowledge. We therefore aimed to develop and validate an asthma first-aid knowledge questionnaire (AFAKQ) to be used before and after educational interventions. METHODS: The AFAKQ was developed based on a content analysis of existing asthma knowledge questionnaires and current asthma management guidelines. Content and face validity was performed by a review panel consisting of expert respiratory physicians, researchers and parents of school aged children...

BACKGROUND: Community pharmacists are in an ideal position to promote and provide mental health medication management services. However, formalised or structured pharmacy services to support consumers with mental health conditions are scarce. Australian mental health consumers indicated a need for targeted community pharmacy mental health services which presented an opportunity to develop an intervention that were integrated with remunerated professional services. OBJECTIVES: The study aimed to pilot a mental health medication management intervention in Australian community pharmacies...

Implementation of professional pharmacy services is a complex process, in which multi-level factors interact and influence implementation process and outcomes at various levels or domains. In this paper the terms that have been used to describe the factors that influence implementation of evidence-based services and their domains are presented. The complex 'cause-and-effect' interactions by which implementation factors appear to interact throughout the implementation process are also discussed. Identifying and understanding these complex and causal relationships between different implementation factors, represents a key process in the implementation of any service, in order to assist in the development of tailored implementation strategies...

BACKGROUND: Although venous thromboembolism (VTE) is one of the most common and most preventable complications of hospital stay, review of the literature demonstrates large evidence-care gaps for VTE prevention. OBJECTIVES: This study aimed to determine if a multi-component quality improvement (QI) strategy, including the support of hospital leadership, use of order sets, audit and feedback, and active pharmacy involvement, could increase the use of appropriate thromboprophylaxis in patients hospitalized for hip fracture surgery (HFS), major general surgery (MGS) and acute medical illness (MED)...

BACKGROUND: Potential inappropriate medication (PIM) prescribing is a medication that puts patients at risk rather than having benefits. PIM use has been associated with hospitalization, morbidity, and mortality resulting from ADRs in elderly patients. The Lists of Risk Drugs for Thai Elderly (LRDTE) was developed as the new screening tool to identify PIMs use. The prevalence of PIM use using the LRDTE has not been determined in Thailand. PURPOSE: The main purpose of this study was to examine the prevalence of PIM use based on the LRDTE...

BACKGROUND: Lost productivity in the workplace represents a significant portion of the economic burden of cancer in the United States. Cancer treatments have historically been physician-administered, while recent innovations have led to the development of self-administered, usually oral, agents. Self-administered treatments have the potential to reduce healthcare utilization and time away from work, but the magnitude of these effects is unknown. OBJECTIVE: To compare the effects of self- and physician-administered cancer treatment on work productivity and health care utilization...

BACKGROUND: Self-care, and hence self-medication, is becoming an increasingly popular practice worldwide. Community pharmacies are an important destination for those seeking non-prescription medicines, and pharmacists and their staff are in a prime position to facilitate appropriate and safe self-medication. PURPOSE: To determine what modifications (for example, a change in brand, change in drug, or non-supply) pharmacy staff make when presented with a request for a non-prescription medicine, and to determine what factors influence whether a modification is made...

Implementation of evidence-based health services interventions is complex and often limited in scope. The Active Implementation Frameworks (AIFs) are an evidence-based set of frameworks to use when attempting to put into practice any innovation of known dimensions. This article describes the novel application of the AIFs to facilitate the implementation and improvement of Comprehensive Medication Management (CMM) in primary care practices to optimize medication use and improve care for patients.
