While we continually strive to bring you the most up to date and practical treatment information in each issue of Pharmacy Today, in my opinion, this month’s Today is especially packed full of clinical pearls. As Christina DeRemer, PharmD, BCPS, BCACP, FASHP, said in an interview about new guidance on the pharmacist’s role in achieving performance and quality measures for hypertension, “I like seeing this in print—this is the stuff we should be doing.” From the new American Heart Association/American College of Cardiology recommendations that advocate for team-based care that she was referencing (page 20), to practical advice for patients on diet and nutrition (page 18), DeRemer hit the nail on the head.

More than 2.8 million antibiotic-resistant infections occur in the United States each year, with an estimated 35,000 Americans dying of these infections annually, according to CDC’s 2019 report on antibiotic resistance threats. “Dedicated prevention and infection control efforts in the U.S. are working to reduce the number of infections and deaths caused by antibiotic-resistant germs, but the number of people facing antibiotic resistance is still too high. More action is needed to fully protect people,” the agency wrote.

A controlled substance prescription must be issued for a legitimate medical purpose and in the usual course of professional practice. Any order for a controlled substance that does not meet these legal criteria is referred to as a “purported prescription,” and a pharmacist who knowingly honors such a purported prescription has committed a federal offense.

In response, the USP Compounding Expert Committee considered appeals by pharmacists and the professional associations that represent them and issued decisions; however, stakeholders who submitted appeals requested further review by a panel with members appointed by USP.

After a large network of pain clinics closed in upstate South Carolina, the pharmacist–patient team met the urgent needs of 20,000 patients who were left abruptly without providers.
