The combination of topical fungicide and glucocorticoids has been proven as a successful therapy of cutaneous mycoses with accompanying inflammatory reactions, particularly when used at an early stage. Various national and international therapeutic guidelines recommend this practice. In this context, two individually manufactured formulations have been developed and tested for stability: the combination of methylprednisolone aceponate-a topical glucocorticoid with the therapeutic index of 2.0-with clotrimazole and with ciclopirox olamine, respectively...

Separation of medical and dispensary services has taken root in Japan as a healthcare system;8 00 million prescriptions have been issued, and 70% of medical institutions now participate in this practice. Additionally, discussions are ongoing regarding patient-oriented family pharmacies from a"back-to-basics"perspective of the separation drug dispensing from medical practice. Through a series of such discussions, the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare published a paper entitled"Vision for Pharmacies Working for Patients"with a focus on 3 functions to be implemented by family pharmacists and pharmacies...

: The cornerstone of every health care profession is decision making. Historically, the decisions made by pharmacists have focused on ensuring the accuracy and physical integrity of the pharmaceutical product delivered to the patient in strict compliance with the prescriber's order. As the role of the pharmacist evolved over the past half century, the focus of decision making progressively shifted from a product-centric orientation to optimizing the interaction that occurs between the pharmaceutical product and the patient...

BACKGROUND: Patients undergoing coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery are required to take a complex regimen of medications for extended periods, and they may have negative outcomes because they struggle to adhere to this regimen. Designing effective interventions to promote medication adherence in this patient group is therefore important. OBJECTIVE: The present study aimed to evaluate the long-term effects of a multifaceted intervention (psycho-education, motivational interviewing, and short message services) on medication adherence, quality of life (QoL), and mortality rates in older patients undergoing CABG surgery...

CONTEXT: Simulated clinical immersion (SCI) is used in undergraduate healthcare programs to expose the learner to real-life situations in authentic simulated clinical environments. For novices, the environment in which the simulation occurs can be distracting and stressful, hence potentially compromising learning. OBJECTIVES: This study aims to determine whether SCI (with environment) imposes greater extraneous cognitive load and stress on undergraduate pharmacy students than simulated patients (SP) (without environment)...

The age-adjusted prevalence of seizure disorder in United States veterans deployed in Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts (IAV) is 6.1 per 1,000 persons (1), compared with 7.1 to 10 per 1,000 persons in the general population (2,3). Persons with epilepsy are at risk of excess mortality in part because of comorbidity (4). Although patterns of comorbidity have been associated with mortality in IAV (5), the unique contribution of epilepsy to excess mortality in IAV is unknown. A cohort study was developed using inpatient, outpatient, and pharmacy data from the U...
