BACKGROUND: Extemporaneous formulations broaden the spectrum of therapeutic options for topical treatment in particular and thus improve patient care. The latest amendment to the Regulation on the Operation of Pharmacies issued in 2012 brought about changes in prescribing and manufacturing practices. The aim of the present study was to assess the relevance of extemporaneous formulations in everyday clinical practice. METHODS: We used data from the German Institute for Drug Use Evaluation (DAPI) to analyze the prescribing practice for compounded preparations in Germany between the fourth quarter of 2011 and the third quarter of 2014...

I read with interest (and some degree of disappointment) the new 2018 Stroke Guidelines published in January of this year that are labeled prominently "Endorsed by SAEM".1 To be clear, my disappointment has nothing to do with the use of tPA in acute ischemic stroke (I am happy to let others lead that charge). I am an admitted agnostic when it comes to the use of tPA (it helps some, it harms others, and we need to be really smart in its use to maximize the former and minimize the latter). Rather, it was notable to me that while the new guidelines touch a large number of specialties (Internal Medicine, Pharmacy, Nutrition, Rehabilitation, Radiology, Neurology, and Interventionalists to name a few), only one specialty merited a new Level 1A recommendation for targeted education This article is protected by copyright...

Casandra A Holveck, Jeannette Y Wick
With a population that is increasingly "gray," our nation faces a shortage of primary care providers who specialize in geriatrics. The number of geriatricians per 10,000 adults older than 65 years of age has decreased steadily since 2000. Health care providers from all disciplines (medicine, nursing, and pharmacy) tend not to choose geriatrics as a specialty area. Some are intimidated by the complexity of caring for elderly patients with geriatric syndromes and multiple morbidities. Others, who have little exposure to geriatrics in their undergraduate and graduate programs, are simply unaware of the personal and professional rewards associated with practice in geriatrics...

BACKGROUND: Multiple sclerosis (MS) is associated with high total health care cost, the majority of which is attributable to medications. Patients with MS are less likely to experience relapses, emergency department (ED) visits, and hospitalizations when they are adherent to disease-modifying treatments. Disease management programs are hypothesized to improve medication adherence thereby improving clinical and economic outcomes. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the clinical and economic effects of a specialty pharmacy and chronic disease management program for patients with MS from a health plan perspective...
