Objectives. Medication non-adherence is common among patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) and is associated with poor clinical outcomes. To date, pharmacists have been underutilised in the delivery of adherence interventions. Across two studies, we assessed the feasibility, acceptability and effectiveness of a novel pharmacy-led intervention for patients hospitalised with ACS. Methods. The theory-based intervention was comprised of two personalised sessions addressing perceptual (negative/erroneous treatment beliefs) and practical (suboptimal action planning) barriers to adherence. Study 1: A single-arm, feasibility and acceptability study was conducted to determine proof-of-concept. Pre–post-comparisons using the Beliefs about Medicin.
Objectives. To quantify the availability of authorised, age-appropriate paediatric medicines in clinical practice in the Netherlands and to identify gaps by assessing dispensing practice in a paediatric hospital. Methods. The availability of age-appropriate formulations was assessed by conducting a survey on the use of pharmacy compounded medicines among the paediatric hospitals in the Netherlands, and by analysing dispensing data of oral medication from the inpatient pharmacy of the largest paediatric hospital in the Netherlands.
Statins are widely used in the treatment of hypercholesterolemia. Muscle weakness and elevated creatine kinase (CK) are frequent side effects of statins with an incidence of about 15%. Statin-associated myopathy is more common in people who receive multiple drugs, the elderly or women but the mechanism underlying it is still unclear. These symptoms generally improve after drug discontinuation. However, there is a type of autoimmune mediated myopathy characterised by the persistence of muscle weakness and CK elevation after stopping statins. Herein, we discuss a case of autoimmune myopathy associated with statin exposure and responsive to immunossupresive drugs. The increased use of statins in recent years raises the importance of acquaintan.
Objectives. To transfer sterile medical devices (SMD), infusion bags (IB), ampoules (A), injection vials (V) and infusion bottles (B) into a laminar airflow cabinet (LAF) or safety cabinet (SC) with a surface bioburden as low as possible. Methods. Surface bioburden of the outer layer of SMD, IB, A, V and B was determined by contact plates.
Objectives. Electronic prescribing and medication administration systems are being introduced in many hospitals worldwide, with varying degrees of clinical decision support including pop-up alerts. Previous research suggests that prescribers override a high proportion of alerts, but little research has been carried out in the UK. Our objective was to explore rates of alert overriding in different prescribing situations and prescribers’ perceptions around the use of decision support alerts in a UK hospital. Methods. We conducted a mixed methods study on three cardiology wards, directly observing medical and non-medical prescribers’ alert override rates during both ward round and non-ward round prescribing; observations were followed by semi-st.
We present a case which reports the occurrence of psychotic disorders after metronidazole and levofloxacin therapy in a chronic kidney patient while being treated for enterocolitis and urinary infection. A 48-year-old female was admitted to a hospital for the placement of a peritoneal dialysis catheter due to indicated peritoneal dialysis. During admission, symptoms of enterocolitis and urinary infection had occurred, so metronidazole and levofloxacin were introduced into therapy, respectively. After 4 days of metronidazole and 3 days of levofloxacin therapy, the patient became confused, disoriented, with signs of delirium. Since the diagnosis of psychoorganic disorder was made, the therapy with lorazepam and haloperidol was initiated, whil.
A possible case of ulcerative colitis (UC) developed during treatment with ixekizumab is reported. Ixekizumab is a human monoclonal antibody approved for chronic plaque psoriasis that works by blocking interleukin-17 (IL-17). Cytoquines, such as IL-17, may be involved in the pathophysiology of psoriasis and inflammatory bowel diseases. We describe the case of a 76-year-old woman who presented with an episode of acute self-limited colitis after receiving ten doses of ixekizumab. It was resolved after treatment withdrawal. A re-challenge was done after 3 months and symptoms returned. Colonoscopy results confirmed the diagnosis of UC. Symptoms remitted after drug discontinuation and treatment with corticosteroids. Four months after stopping ix.
Terbinafine is an antifungaldrug(inhibitor of ergosterol synthesis) known to induce skin reactions. A 58-year-old female was treated with terbinafine for onychomycosis. On the fifth day of treatment a skin rash emerged on her sun-exposed areas. Biological testing did not find any allergic signs. Other skin reactions are well known with terbinafine, but we depict here, a case of photosensitisation induced by treatment, generally unknown for this antifungal. This side effect can be prevented by medication reconciliation and pharmaceutical advice from the clinical pharmacist.
Objectives. Problems relating to patients’ medication are common during hospital discharge, often resulting in unnecessary harm to patients and even hospital readmission. To overcome these issues and improve patient discharge, an evidence-based approach was used to develop an innovative model of care for the supply of medication at hospital discharge. The model increases pharmacy involvement, uses community pharmacies in the supply process and encourages patient follow-up after discharge. This study aimed to determine if the proposed new model of care was considered feasible and acceptable by the target population. Methods. This formative evaluation involved qualitative interviews and focus groups to explore the opinions of stakeholders invol.
