  • Management of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease: A review focusing on
    • Authors: Bollmeier S; Hartmann A.
      Pages: 259 - 268
      Abstract: PurposeChronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a significant cause of morbidity and mortality in the United States. Exacerbations— acute worsening of COPD symptoms—can be mild to severe in nature. Increased healthcare resource use is common among patients with frequent exacerbations, and exacerbations are a major cause of the high 30-day hospital readmission rates associated with COPD.SummaryThis review provides a concise overview of the literature regarding the impact of COPD exacerbations on both the patient and the healthcare system, the recommendations for pharmacologic management of COPD, and the strategies employed to improve patient care and reduce hospitalizations and readmissions. COPD exacerbations significantly impact patients’ health-related quality of life and disease progression; healthcare costs associated with severe exacerbation-related hospitalization range from $7,000 to $39,200. Timely and appropriate maintenance pharmacotherapy, particularly dual bronchodilators for maximizing bronchodilation, can significantly reduce exacerbations in patients with COPD. Additionally, multidisciplinary disease-management programs include pulmonary rehabilitation, follow-up appointments, aftercare, inhaler training, and patient education that can reduce hospitalizations and readmissions for patients with COPD.ConclusionMaximizing bronchodilation by the appropriate use of maintenance therapy, together with multidisciplinary disease-management and patient education programs, offers opportunities to reduce exacerbations, hospitalizations, and readmissions for patients with COPD.

  • Antithrombotic therapy for postinterventional management of peripheral
           arterial disease
    • Authors: Zavgorodnyaya D; Knight T, Daley M, et al.
      Pages: 269 - 276
      Abstract: PurposeEvidence on the use of antithrombotic pharmacotherapy in patients undergoing revascularization of lower extremities for symptomatic peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is reviewed.SummaryIndividuals with PAD can experience leg pain, intermittent claudication, critical limb ischemia, and acute limb ischemia. In such patients, revascularization may be indicated to improve the quality of life and to prevent amputations. Antithrombotic therapy is often intensified in the postrevascularization period to prevent restenosis of the index artery and to counteract the prothrombotic state induced by the intervention. Therapeutic modalities include dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT), anticoagulation, a combination of antiplatelet and anticoagulation therapy, and addition of cilostazol to single antiplatelet therapy. Subgroup analyses of data from randomized clinical trials provided low-quality evidence for the use of DAPT in patients with a below-knee prosthetic bypass graft and anticoagulation for those with a venous bypass graft. Cilostazol, when added to aspirin therapy, has been shown to prevent index vessel reocclusion after an endovascular intervention in patients at low risk for thrombosis in several small randomized trials.ConclusionThere is a considerable paucity of high-quality evidence on the optimal antithrombotic regimen for patients undergoing lower extremity revascularization, with no particular therapy shown to consistently improve patient outcomes. The decision to initiate intensified antithrombotic therapy should include a close examination of its risk–benefit profile. The demonstrated benefit of such treatment is restricted to the prevention of index artery reocclusion, while an increased risk of bleeding may lead to significant morbidity and mortality.

  • A pediatric desensitization protocol for etoposide
    • Authors: Martinez N; Miyasaki A, Roh L, et al.
      Pages: 277 - 281
      Abstract: PurposeThe implementation of a pediatric desensitization protocol specific to etoposide in an adolescent with Hodgkin lymphoma is described.SummaryEtoposide is part of many chemotherapy regimens used to treat malignancies in children and adults, and it is also part of the backbone of many regimens used in clinical trials. Etoposide is known to produce hypersensitivity reactions during administration. Substitution with etoposide phosphate, which has less potential for hypersensitivity reactions, is used in place of etoposide after severe hypersensitivity reactions. Etoposide desensitization protocols (EDPs) have been reported in adult patients.ConclusionThe implementation of an etoposide desensitization protocol for pediatric patients is safe and helpful to prevent the elimination of etoposide from treatment protocols. The use of an EDP allowed the patient to remain on clinical trial and complete the prescribed treatment.

  • Accuracy of and prescriber perceptions related to documenting antibiotic
           indications during order entry at an academic medical center
    • Authors: Beardsley J; Vestal M, Rosario N, et al.
      Pages: 282 - 287
      Abstract: PurposeTo assess the accuracy of antibiotic indication documentation provided during order entry and prescriber perceptions of the requirement to specify indications.MethodsPatients who received 1 of 6 selected antibiotics from May 1 through June 30, 2017, were identified. Records of 30 randomly selected patients who received each study antibiotic were retrospectively reviewed. The primary endpoint was indication accuracy, defined as agreement of the indication entered during order entry with that documented in progress notes at the time of order entry. Secondary endpoints included correlation of entered indication and final diagnosis for empiric antibiotics. A brief survey was emailed to prescribers to assess the burden and perceptions of requiring an indication during order entry.ResultsFour thousand five hundred twenty-four patients received 1 or more doses of a study antibiotic. For the 180 patients selected for evaluation, 89.4% of indications were accurate. Indications for antibiotics ordered for prophylaxis were more likely to be inaccurate than those for empiric or definitive antibiotics (accuracy rates of 46%, 94%, and 92%, respectively, p < 0.05). For empiric antibiotics, 78.5% of indications documented at order entry matched the final diagnosis. Two hundred fifty-four of 863 prescribers (29%) responded to the survey request. Most respondents felt that documenting the indication took no more than 20 seconds, was a “minor nuisance” or “occasionally burdensome,” and had no impact on their consideration of antibiotic appropriateness.ConclusionWith the exception of prophylaxis, the indications documented during order entry were sufficiently accurate to assist antimicrobial stewardship efforts. Although indication documentation was perceived as a minor burden, surveyed prescribers indicated it had only a minimal beneficial effect on antibiotic prescribing.

  • Improvement of postinpatient psychiatric follow-up for veterans using

      Pages: 288 - 294
      Abstract: PurposeTo describe the implementation and initial outcomes of a pilot interdisciplinary telehealth clinic, Allied Transitional Telehealth Encounters post-iNpatient Discharge (ATTEND), providing clinical pharmacy specialist follow-up for veterans transitioning from inpatient to outpatient mental healthcare in a Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA) hospital.SummaryThe ATTEND clinic’s primary intervention was providing medication management appointments through clinical video telehealth (CVT) to patient discharge locations through a DVA-provided tablet. An interdisciplinary team supported care through on-unit inpatient training, secure messaging, and self-help applications. Clinical outcomes were measured through readmission rates, wait times, self-report measures, and follow-up interview at the completion of ATTEND services. Twenty patients completed on-unit training, and 16 unique patients were seen for at least 1 outpatient appointment. Inpatient readmission rates were lower for ATTEND patients than with standard care (5% versus 19%, respectively). Wait times until first postdischarge mental health appointment were reduced by a mean of 18.6 (S.D., 8.8) days. The pharmacist made medication interventions, including dosing changes, education on incorrect administration, and medication discontinuation. Self-reported psychological symptoms decreased during ATTEND participation. Post-ATTEND interviews indicated high levels of acceptance and interest in continued tablet-based care. Primary challenges included unique technological limitations and effective care coordination.ConclusionThe ATTEND telehealth clinic provided postinpatient mental health follow-up that was more prompt and convenient than conventional on-site appointments. Psychiatric self-report improved during ATTEND-facilitated transition to outpatient care, and the recidivism rate for ATTEND patients was lower than the general inpatient rate during the same time period.

  • Digital content delivery in a pharmacy technician training program in a
           health system
    • Authors: Kelm M; Bush P.
      Pages: 295 - 299
      Abstract: PurposeDevelopment and implementation of a pharmacy technician training program are described.SummaryAs key members of the healthcare team, pharmacy technicians are integral to a pharmacy’s operation. Training programs allow technicians to assume roles that support pharmacists practicing “at the top of their license,” assist in providing optimal patient care, and serve as an important tool for retaining trained pharmacy technicians. Duke University Health System (DUHS) launched its Pharmacy Technology Training Program (DUHS-PTTP) within the department of pharmacy at Duke University Hospital in April 2018 to assist in meeting current and future pharmacy technician demand. Candidates are provided with the tools to become certified pharmacy technicians through the completion of an affordable accredited program incorporating didactic, simulation-based, and experiential education. The program’s partnership with a digital content provider enables accelerated start-up, minimizes investment in content creation and maintenance, enables automated record keeping, and provides flexibility for program participants to complete didactic content outside of the traditional classroom setting. Implementation of this program aims to support students both internal and external to the institution. Students are trained to begin a career as a pharmacy technician with the intent of producing graduates well equipped and eligible for certification by the Pharmacy Technician Certification Board.ConclusionImplementation of a pharmacy technician training program is a logical extension of the demonstrated core training competency of health-system pharmacy departments.
