Co-Located Retail Clinics And Pharmacies: An Opportunity To Provide More Primary Care., Katherine K. Knapp, Keith Yoshizuka, Debra Sasaki-Hill, Rory Caygill-Walsh 2019 Touro University California, Touro College of Pharmacy (New York)

Co-Located Retail Clinics And Pharmacies: An Opportunity To Provide More Primary Care., Katherine K. Knapp, Keith Yoshizuka, Debra Sasaki-Hill, Rory Caygill-Walsh

College of Pharmacy (TUC) Publications and Research

This paper proposes that co-located retail clinics (RCs) and community pharmacies can increase opportunities to provide more accessible, affordable, and patient-friendly primary care services in the United States. RCs are small businesses of about 150-250 square feet with a clientele of about 10-30 patients each day and most frequently staffed by nurse practitioners (NPs). Community pharmacies in the U.S. at ~67,000 far outnumber RCs at ~2800, thereby opening substantial opportunity for growth. Community pharmacies and pharmacists have been working to increase on-site clinical services, but progress has been slowed by the relative isolation from other practitioners. An ideal ...

Pharmacy Management & Leadership Learning Through Case Studies, Steven Arendt, Mike Millard, Madeline Fry 2019 Pacific University

Pharmacy Management & Leadership Learning Through Case Studies, Steven Arendt, Mike Millard, Madeline Fry

Pacific University Press

This Casebook is a compilation of cases used in the Social Administrative Sciences classroom at Pacific University School of Pharmacy to help you (the student pharmacist) apply critical thinking, problem solving, and decision-making to common administrative-related challenges seen in pharmacies. These cases do not contain a clinical pharmacy component, in order to focus on the many other important and often overlooked administrative tasks a pharmacist is likely to encounter in their day-to-day work.

This book is similar to a clinical casebook, where it is expected that the focus is on the process of solving the case, not necessarily finding a ...


Safe Injection Facilities, Timothy Kwong 2019 Dominican University of California

Safe Injection Facilities, Timothy Kwong

Honors Theses

According to the Center of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), “In 2016, a total of 63,632 persons in the United States died from drug overdoses; the age-adjusted rate was 19.8 deaths per 100,000 persons.” There have been countless programs with the sole purpose of reducing the amount of drug related deaths. Some with positive outcomes and others with negative outcomes. Since there is no feasible method of eradicating the problem as a whole, the next logical thing to do would to be creating effect prevention programs.

Safe Injection Facilities (SIFs) have been around for over three decades ...

A medication error is a preventable event in any healthcare setting that may lead to inappropriate medication use while in the control of the healthcare professional or patient, ultimately leading to patient harm and/or death. Medication errors can be classified into five categories: 1) wrong drug, 2) wrong dose, 3) wrong route, 4) wrong frequency and/or 5) wrong patient.

Evaluating Ways To Reduce Errors In Medication Reconciliations Performed By Nurses In A Rural Hospital Setting, Kalen T. Freeman

MPA/MPP Capstone Projects

Medication reconciliation, also known as “med recs”, are an important part of a patient’s care during their hospitalization. A med rec is when hospital personnel generate a list of the medications the patient takes at home. Med recs are vital in the hospital admission process because home medications need to be restarted at appropriate times to fully care for the patient. Also, mistakes in a home medication list can lead to serious consequences in the patient’s health. This study focuses on med recs being performed at Marcum and Wallace Hospital in Irvine, Kentucky. More specifically, the study explores ...

Alberto Coustasse, DrPH, MD, MBA, MPH

The 340B Drug Pricing Program, created by Congress in 1992 through the Veterans Health Care Act, has provided discounted drug prices to hospitals and other health care organizations serving a wide population of low-income patients. Some 340B programs use contract pharmacies, an arrangement whereby the hospital or health care organization signs a contract directly with a pharmacy to provide covered pharmacy services at discounted prices.

The federal 340B Drug Pricing Program has provided access to reduced price prescription drugs to over 35,000 individual healthcare facilities and sites certified by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS ...

From Prison To The Community: Opportunities For Pharmacists To Support Inmate Medication Adherence, Elliott Bosco, Deborah Shelton

Journal for Evidence-based Practice in Correctional Health

The United States correctional system is a vital treatment source for chronic illnesses. Whether treating a chronic mental or physical illness, correctional healthcare requires effective resource utilization. Limited research exists on pharmacists' ability to directly address inmate medication adherence. Thus, this study explores inmate perception of medication adherence and management as part of their treatment plan. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with inmates throughout Connecticut. Diseases of interest were divided into a physical illness group (hypertension, diabetes mellitus, HIV/AIDS) and a mental illness group (depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, substance abuse). A content analysis was conducted on four questions: 1) Do ...
