OBJECTIVE: Drug-related problems (DRPs) are considered a serious, expensive, and important undesirable complication of health care. However, as current health care resources are limited, pharmacist DRP services cannot be provided to all patients. Using a modeling approach, we aimed to identify risk factors for DRPs so that patients for DRP-reduction services can be better identified. METHODS: Patients with diabetes from outpatient clinics from five key university-affiliated and public hospitals in Jordan were assessed for DRPs (drug without an indication, untreated indication, and drug efficacy problems)...

This study assesses self-reported implementation of SB41 and characterizes barriers amenable to intervention. DESIGN: Interviewer-administered survey. SETTING AND PARTICIPANTS: Fresno and Kern Counties, CA...

OBJECTIVE: To assess the impact of Medicaid prescription copayment policies on antipsychotic and other medication use among patients with schizophrenia. METHOD: The study sample included fee-for-service adult Medicaid patients with schizophrenia. Medicaid claims records from 2003-2005 from 42 states and D.C. were linked with county-level data from the Area Resource File and findings from a state Medicaid policy survey. Patient-level fixed-effects regression models examined the impact of increases in generic copayments and generic/brand copayment differentials on monthly use of antipsychotic (overall and by generic/brand status) and other non-antipsychotic medications...

Objective Embedding clinical pharmacists into ambulatory care settings needs to be assessed in the context of established medical home models. Methods A retrospective, observational study examined the effectiveness of the Intermountain Healthcare Collaborative Pharmacist Support Services (CPSS) program from 2012-2015 among adult patients diagnosed with diabetes mellitus (DM) and/or high blood pressure (HBP). Patients who attended this program were considered the intervention (CPSS) cohort. These patients were matched using propensity scores with a reference group (no-CPSS cohort) to determine the effect of achieving disease management goals and time to achievement...

BACKGROUND: Management of chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients often requires the use of multiple drugs due to a high number of cardiovascular risk factors and complications associated with the disease. Multiple drugs predispose to potential drug-drug interactions (DDIs) which may be associated with increased morbidity, mortality, length of hospital stay and health-care cost. OBJECTIVES: This study determined the prevalence and pattern of potential DDIs among CKD patients attending Kidney Care Centre, in Ondo City, Nigeria...

BACKGROUND: An important factor in controlling diabetes is self-monitoring of blood glucose. Manufacturers of glucose meters recommend routine use of control solution to ensure accuracy. Previous studies have demonstrated that glucose meters vary in accuracy and that patients are not using control solution as recommended. The purpose of this study is to identify potential barriers to control solution use from multiple perspectives including patient, pharmacist, and provider. METHODS: This study was a prospective, observational survey design...

Located in the heart of the community and widely distributed geographically, community pharmacies provide a platform for a more proactive involvement in public health services. So far, little information has been gathered in Ethiopia on community pharmacists' level of involvement in public health services. The aim of the present study was, therefore, to document the level of involvement of community pharmacy professionals in the provision of public health services and the barriers to such involvement. This study employed a self-administered questionnaire based survey, which asked participants to indicate their frequency and level of involvement in providing public health services and their perceived barriers in providing such services...

BACKGROUND: Selection bias and non-participation bias are major methodological concerns which impact external validity. Cluster-randomized controlled trials are especially prone to selection bias as it is impractical to blind clusters to their allocation into intervention or control. This study assessed the impact of selection bias in a large cluster-randomized controlled trial. METHODS: The Improved Cardiovascular Risk Reduction to Enhance Rural Primary Care (ICARE) study examined the impact of a remote pharmacist-led intervention in twelve medical offices...

PURPOSE: The use of videoconferencing and other telehealth technologies to expand access to clinical pharmacy services at multiple Veterans Affairs (VA) clinics in rural areas of Alaska and the northwestern United States is described. SUMMARY: Beginning in 2014, clinical pharmacy specialists at a regional VA Telehealth Hub based at Boise VA Medical Center in Idaho have provided telehealth services for 16 clinics. In one telehealth model, a pharmacist and other remotely located primary care team members (a medical provider, a medical support assistant, a social worker, and a psychologist) conduct telehealth visits with veterans located at VA clinics, with support provided by clinic-based nursing staff; this model has been used to improve medication management services for veterans in sparsely populated areas...

Adverse drug events could require a patient to visit the emergency department, many of these visits lead to hospital admissions. A retrospective study, October 2015 to March 2016, examined the severity and factors contributing to medications related emergency visits leading to admissions at King Faisal Specialist Hospital and Research Center, Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. Out of 698 reviewed patients, 92 were medications related admissions. Adverse drug reactions were the primary cause (46.7%), drug prescribing (30...

Non-communicable diseases (NCDs), including cardiovascular diseases (CVD), hypertension and diabetes together with HIV infection are among the major public health concerns worldwide. Health services for HIV and NCDs require health systems that provide for people's chronic care needs, which present an opportunity to coordinate efforts and create synergies between programs to benefit people living with HIV and/or AIDS and NCDs. This review included studies that reported service integration for HIV and/or AIDS with coronary heart diseases, chronic CVD, cerebrovascular diseases (stroke), hypertension or diabetes...

BACKGROUND: Established cardiovascular risk factors are highly prevalent and contribute substantially to cardiovascular morbidity and mortality because they remain uncontrolled in many Canadians. Worksite-based cardiovascular risk factor screening and management represent a largely untapped strategy for optimizing risk factor control. METHODS: In a 2-phase collaborative demonstration project between Alberta Health Services (AHS) and the Alberta Newsprint Company (ANC), ANC employees were offered cardiovascular risk factor screening and management...

BACKGROUND: Improving medication adherence is a common and challenging issue. Taking medications as prescribed becomes particularly difficult for individuals with multiple chronic conditions. Poor adherence can lead to exacerbated health issues and prolonged disease severity. Medication Therapy Management is increasingly being used to help clinics improve medication adherence and reduce adverse events, but factors that enable implementation of such programs are not well identified. OBJECTIVE: To describe the factors associated with implementation of an innovative pharmacy program and to measure the impact of the intervention...

OBJECTIVES: Pharmacist-led diabetes collaborative drug therapy management (CDTM) has been shown to improve outcomes. Whether such programs are effective specifically in Medicaid patients, who face barriers to access and self-management, has not been well characterized. This pilot study explores glycemic control, utilization and costs associated with pharmacist-led CDTM in a small population of Medicaid patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). METHODS: A pre-post, historical cohort study was conducted of patients with T2DM and Medicaid coverage who received pharmacist-led CDTM in community-based primary clinics between 2008-2012...
