    Where's the Patient's Voice in Evidence-based Treatment & Research? | Pharmacist and Physician Opioid Collaborative

    Play Episode Listen Later Jan 21, 2022 60:11

    Each day, more than 130 people die from opioid overdoses. Opioids are a class of drugs that include prescription pain relievers like oxycodone. They also include illegal drugs like heroin. In 2019, 1.6 million Americans had an opioid addiction. This is also known as opioid use disorder. Yet effective medications—like buprenorphine, methadone, and naltrexone—are prescribed to only a fraction of people with opioid use disorder. Patients often receive such medications in an opioid treatment program. Methadone, for example, can only be given in a certified treatment program. Primary care physicians can apply for a waiver to prescribe buprenorphine. However, less than 10% of U.S. primary care providers have a buprenorphine waiver. Given the limited number of patients that each physician can treat, involving pharmacists in opioid treatment may improve access. The Doctor Patient Forum's Mission Statement is to advocate, educate, and defend the rights of patients, to protect all providers (including prescribers and pharmacists) who tirelessly work to treat their patients, and to bring awareness to the general public regarding restrictions upon medical providers. We are fighting for a return to individualized patient care instead of using guidelines and laws based on little evidence using arbitrary thresholds. Contrary to what has been said, we are not “industry funded.” We haven't taken any money from pharma. We are not being paid to promote opioids. We are simply chronic pain and illness patients who are fighting as hard as we can to effect change in this broken system where the patient's voice is non-existent. For part 4 of the series, we're honored to have Ms. Bev Schechtman. Ms. Schectman is one of the founding members of Don't Punish Pain Rally and is the VP of The Doctor Patient Forum. She grew up in northern New Jersey, and has lived in the Raleigh area in North Carolina since 2009. Bev has been married to Randy for 18 years, and has two teenage daughters, Emma, 17, and Livvy,13. She also has a 3-year-old Aussidoodle, Griffin. Bev has been living with Crohn's Disease and Psoriatic Arthritis for over two decades. She first contacted Claudia Merandi after being denied opioid medication while hospitalized for kidney stones in 2017.She was denied due to being a survivor of childhood sexual abuse. Bev is a passionate advocate for people with chronic pain and illness as well as those who have PTSD/ survived sexual assault/abuse. Bev has her B.A. in Psychology and hopes to get her M.S.W. in the near future. Bev is a voracious reader and researcher. She is passionate about understanding why pain patients are being mistreated so she can educate other patients and empower them to fight back. Bev hopes her advocacy work brings awareness to the anti-opioid zealots who are profiting off of punishing pain patients while pretending to care about those with addiction. She also believes strongly in Harm Reduction efforts. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

    In this episode of the DarshanTalks Podcast, the host Darshan Kulkarni Pharm.D, MS, Esq. welcomes back guest Sean O'Brien to talk about Data & Privacy. Sean O'Brien is a lecturer at Yale Law School and Chief Security Officer at Panquake. He is a Visiting Fellow at the Information Society Project at Yale Law School, where he founded and leads the Privacy Lab initiative. At the start of the podcast, he explained his journey in Yale and the Privacy lab. In Privacy Lab they deal with hands-on tech implementation where they show people how to be more secure, private and potentially anonymous about their privacy and data. There are digital self-defense workshops that were called crypto parties. These involved hands-on practices which is different from teaching basics and principles of a particular subject. The expert talked about teaching the students which included professionals, paralegals, law graduates, and undergrad students who are seeking to learn about cyber tech. With that, they performed cyber security activities and students came up with their own concepts of hacking. For example, They performed the activity of hacking other students' microphones in the same room, which was fun and engaging to learn. Discussion on social networking and privacy implications that the big giants like Facebook and Twitter are causing people to feel not so secure. Sean talked about the Panquake, a decentralized platform that works on blockchain, and how it's the game-changer for social networking with short messaging technology wherein people's privacy is protected. He described there are three components of determining the social networking with privacy i.e., the question of critical mass, the question of hunger and willingness to pay for privacy by users, and history of alternative/replacement of social networks. Panquake blockchain model will be based on Byzantine fault tolerance.

    Pandemic Stresses and Patient Safety | Locked On Pharmacy

    Play Episode Listen Later Jan 19, 2022 29:38

    We have heard loud concerns of overwhelmed pharmacists in busy pharmacies. We have also heard of potential pharmacist protests to their employers in the form of a sickout. Pharmacy workforce issues that lead to frustration and burnout are very real. They have been building for some time, but they have become more acute with the stressors brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. Workplace conditions have pushed many pharmacists and pharmacy teams to the brink of despair. Pharmacy burnout is a significant patient safety issue. It is impacting patients today with delayed prescription fulfillment, unacceptable waits for vaccines and testing, and potential errors due to high volume, long hours and pressure to meet performance metrics. Well-being APhA and the National Alliance of State Pharmacy Associations developed the Pharmacy Workplace and Well-being Reporting (PWWR), a safe, confidential, and anonymous space for pharmacy personnel to report positive and negative workplace experiences. PWWR reports create a pool of aggregated data that will be used to influence and educate our pharmacy community and leaders—including those who can do something about it – on meaningful and actionable changes. The experiences and situations submitted via PWWR help tell a collective, powerful story that can spark change and improvement in well-being, delivery of care, and patient safety in pharmacies. APhA unwaveringly supports our pharmacists and the work of pharmacy teams as they seek overdue action from employers to improve eroding workplace conditions. However, we strongly believe that actions such as a sickout where pharmacists would walk away from direct patient care is not an appropriate action. A profession that is rightly demanding action to keep themselves and their patients safe should not compromise public welfare by abandoning patients who rely on them. Serving patients and ensuring patient safety is core to the profession of pharmacy. Pharmacists are caregivers, and we must address the fundamental issues causing burnout and frustration. The public, decision-makers, and regulators must be educated about, and recognize, the seriousness of our pharmacy teams' negative well-being and the need for both additional resources and realistic expectations to safely provide patient care services. The value within our practices are the individuals who serve the health care needs of their patients and communities. Pharmacists are committed to serving these needs and have demonstrated this commitment throughout the pandemic. However, they cannot sustain this commitment without immediate changes.

    Daniel Shapiro, author of The Thin Ledge: A Husband's Memoir of Love, Trauma, and Unexpected Circumstances. Daniel was a successful attorney in his early forties when his wife Susan suffered not one, but two massive brain hemorrhages. The bleeds left Susan spiraling into a depression, with a major personality change and barely able to speak, see, or walk.  In this profoundly honest memoir, Daniel Shapiro shares the reality of the fifteen years he spent living and caring for his wife while also single handedly raising their three young children. Often Shapiro found himself looking for guidance as he struggled to figure out what is right, what is okay, what is wrong, what is just human, and how to bear it all. For anyone who has ever had to deal with the anguish and desperation of an illness, this book addresses questions that people living through unspeakable misfortunes may never mention, but almost always ask. Daniel is available to talk about the book as well as: Dan's experience with the US healthcare system. The struggle of a caregiver {1 in 5 Americans are caregivers}.  The perspective of a male caregiver {most caregivers are women}.  “The Long Goodbye” and moving on/growing from trauma.

    Synopsis: Major psychiatric disorders are a growing public health concern that attributed to 14% of the global burden of diseases. The management of major psychiatric disorders is challenging mainly due to medication non-adherence. There seems to be a scarcity of summarized evidence on the prevalence of psychotropic medication non-adherence and associated factors. Psychiatric disorders have been a global public health challenge. Almost 450 million people are affected by psychiatric disorders worldwide.  Psychiatric disorders cost approximately $2.5 trillion dollars in 2010 and are expected to rise up to $6.0 trillion by 2030. Mental health disorders are surprisingly common in the United States. Nearly one in five U.S. adults live with a mental health illness, that's 51.5 million people in 2019. Mental illnesses include many different conditions that vary in degree of severity, ranging from mild to moderate to severe. Lost resources and production, unemployment, absences from work, and premature death are some of the indirect economic costs. Therefore, we're excited to discuss this important topic today with three Pharmacist's focused on Mental Health in their communities and practices. Tyler Young RPh, is the lead pharmacist with Hines Prescription Shop, a locally-owned pharmacy in Barnesville, Georgia. Tyler helps hundreds of patients become more compliant with their medications by making it simpler with RxSafe Adherence packaging. Dr. Thomas McDowell, PharmD, is the owner of McDowell's Pharmacy in North Carolina. Thomas and I have been on several panel discussions in the past, both LIVE in person, and on Zoom. We value Thomas's insights & look forward to his experiences helping patients with mental health conditions. Dr. Monica Krishnan, PharmD, is a clinical pharmacist with a practice of over 18 years. She began her career as a inpatient critical care pharmacist at UCLA medical center in 2002. After starting a family and suffering the loss of her husband at a young age, Dr Monica switched paths and joined the field of community pharmacy. Monica is a personal friend of mine, a member of the Pharmacy Podcast Network leading our ‘Pharmacists Focused on Mental Health' podcast and currently works with the Walmart Health & Wellness team in Los Angeles. Dr. Monica plans to continue to spread awareness and education on mental health and hopes to continue working and collaborating with other mental health advocates.

    In this episode of @darshantalks, we discuss Patient Centricity with guest Emma Sutcliffe. Emma Sutcliffe, Senior Vice President, Patient Insights and Solutions at Prime Global (https://primeglobalpeople.com/), talks about her experience hosting a webinar with two prominent industry leaders in the field of patient engagement. Novartis is the gold standard in patient engagement and was used as a case study in that session. Patient engagement is not yet mainstream, so experts are trying to push it towards the companies. Business benefits highly from patient engagement because of the "triple wing" concept: get medical services, products for patients in time and patient-focused drug development. Companies are 19% more likely to launch a drug with successful pharma if they've included patients within their clinical design program. It results in better medicines through the pipelines and patient activation. When patients become active, their patient activation measure (PAM) in patient-centred care is likely to rise on all four levels. They will be 28% more likely to consume fewer healthcare services, which means that the burden on ER departments will reduce as people are more health literate; they can manage health crises independently. Her company has started to help those patients who have reduced activation because of stress levels during a traumatic event, pandemic or work anxiety. Pharma companies that are adding to their PAM improve society's health activation as a whole. She compares UK and US healthcare and speaks about their merits. For the former, through the NHS, patients can try and circumvent diagnostic pathways to get treatments faster via patient activation. For the latter, it is that professional relationships between pharma companies and patient engagement groups are robust. Patients sometimes skirt around the rules and regulations to get access to medicines, but with patient engagement, they don't have to do that. She concludes with her observations on the present regional compliance challenges at play regarding pioneering global patient activation.  Learn more about your ad choices.

The company focus on the integration of compliant pharmacy solutions to improve costs and health outcomes through the use of government programs (when applicable and qualified) and technology partners. 340B is a part of statute written in 1992 with the federal registrar that requires drug manufacturers to provide outpatient drugs to eligible health care organizations and covered entities at significantly reduced prices. The 340B Program enables covered entities to stretch scarce federal resources as far as possible, reaching more eligible patients and providing more comprehensive services. The hospital started using 340B for retail prescriptions and later it morphed into mix used areas including emergency room, observation status, etc. There are certain hospitals that qualify and one of the criteria is it has to be non-profit, the drugs are intended for outpatient use. The second criterion requires that the hospital have a sufficient Medicare disproportionate share hospital (DSH) adjustment percentage. DSH hospitals must have an adjustment percentage greater than 11.75 percent for the most recent cost reporting period ending before the calendar quarter involved. Sole community hospitals and Rural referral centers must have an adjustment percentage of greater than 8 percent. Connect with Rita Baskett: On LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/rita-bask...

This could mean looking at where these choices fit where you're at in your career to switch back to a more positive direction. In terms of functioning in a fast-growing company, professional skills need to be taught long before the employee comes into the workplace. When issues aren't aligning, it is usually time to look at the next opportunity. His role helps companies define what their values are. This can involve internet content and consultations on planning strategies. People need to use the right words to communicate. There is the initial consideration of a generation gap present, but the terms used are generally universal. When it comes to how to use buzzwords, the level of language should be kept simple. Shorter construction of sentences enables the audience to grasp the message better. This is also a nod to Millenials and Gen-Z because people consume so much news every second that they don't have time to go through each one thoroughly. On average, a corporate employee may get 120 emails a day. There is a continued rise in activity across all social networking platforms. Companies can include great engaging headlines to promote their brand with great art, so it catches the viewer's eyes, and people stop scrolling through their feed to read their message. They must work towards delivering great leads that draw people in but should not solely focus on promotion. He has taught writing in several outlets: at the graduate level, in-house consultation and conferences, and people always ask how long the story should be. It is fine if the story stretches to 1,200 words, but the words should carry the story and not the other way around. Writers and editors have to be informative but not loose with the words on the content side. It is vital to observe what drives content, like art, headlines or the audience itself. He elaborates on SEO optimisation when starting to create a profile piece. His approach is usually to find the story behind the apparent story and get to the roots, but different professionals have varying opinions. Learn more about your ad choices.

    In this episode, Dr. Thomas Franko, PharmD, president of the Pennsylvania Pharmacist's Association talks with Todd Eury, CEO & Founder of the Pharmacy Podcast Network about his 'Vision for the Role of the Pharmacist in 2022'. Most people see pharmacists behind the counter dispensing pills and occasionally giving advice on prescription and over the counter (OTC) medications; they may sometimes remind customers of preventive screenings or flu shots. But pharmacists are capable of much more. As part of their professional degree, they receive extensive training on medication management to optimize treatment options, manage medication side effects, interactions and duplications, interpret lab results, perform physical exams, and administer vaccines. --from Deloitte Insights The pandemic increased opportunities for pharmacists to deliver hands-on care. The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) gave pharmacists the authority to order and administer COVID-19 tests, childhood vaccines (3–18 years of age), and COVID-19 vaccines.4 Subsequently, pharmacists, interns, and pharmacy technicians were on the front lines, testing for COVID-19, giving shots, and educating the public, all the while keeping their doors open throughout the pandemic. These efforts elevated the public's perception of pharmacists and offset the burden on other parts of the health care system, providing an opportunity for the profession to redefine its role and value. About Dr. Thomas Franko, PharmD Dr. Franko is the PPA's on-coming President for 2022. After service as a clinical pharmacist in outpatient chronic pain management, Dr. Franko joined Wilkes University in 2013. He maintains an ambulatory care practice site with the Wright Center for Graduate Medical Education in Kingston, PA. He is involved with medication therapy management for several chronic diseases, especially pain management, at the Wright Center. Along with pharmacy students, Dr. Franko trains pharmacy and medical residents from Moses Taylor Hospital and The Wright Center. He is an active member of the American Pharmacists Association, American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy and the Pennsylvania Pharmacists Association. His interests are in pain management, substance use disorder and harm reduction strategies.

The document will outline, in a step-by-step manner, the management tools and marketing techniques the four pharmacies use to successfully implement one or more of the enhanced care services their pharmacies provide.    Kneeland will look at how these four pharmacies chose a specific enhanced care service to provide and how they got their staff to buy into providing the new service. He also will look for ways the pharmacies use features in their Liberty Software system to support these new services. One of Liberty's newest features is an appointment scheduler with features that help them manage their immunization program, interact with state immunization registries, automate billing procedures and auto-populate eCare plans.  [Read more: CPESN USA taps Bruce Kneeland to support local networks] The pharmacies Kneeland will visit provide a cross-section of independent pharmacies.

    For thirty-five years, George S. Zorich worked as a pharmaceutical executive. Along the way, he served on several pharmacy boards, including the ASHP and that of the University of Wisconsin School of Pharmacy. He always found it surprising that graduates were very skilled at clinical pharmacy but not entrepreneurship. His book Entrepreneurs in Pharmacy and Other Leaders will become a useful text for pharmacy students and faculty alike under the new ACPE mandate that pharmacy programs teach entrepreneurship. Section one of the book profiles ten professionals who launched their own innovative businesses from a pharmacy degree. Section two highlights thirty people who became leaders in health care with their pharmacy degrees. Zorich is donating all of the royalties to pharmacy programs and foundations that encourage and foster entrepreneurship. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

    The Mission of the Senior Care Pharmacy Coalition (SCPC) is about Better Patient Care

    According to the Department of Health and Human Services: Fifty-five percent of the elderly are non-compliant with their prescription drug orders, meaning they don't take their medication according to the doctor's instructions. Approximately 200,000 older adults are hospitalized annually due to adverse drug reactions. Special guest:  Senior Care Pharmacy Coalition (SCPC) President and CEO Alan Rosenbloom  Washington, DC – Today, House Committee on Oversight and Reform Ranking Member James Comer (R-Ky.) and minority committee members lawmakers will hold a forum to discuss the impact of pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs) in pharmaceutical markets with industry experts, pharmacists, physicians, and PBMs. In anticipation of the forum the Senior Care Pharmacy Coalition (SCPC) offered the following statement from SCPC President and CEO Alan Rosenbloom: “We welcome today's forum to examine PBMs and their anti-competitive practices, which ultimately drive-up costs for patients and put independent pharmacies out of business. A handful of PBMs dominate the market, and most are part of much larger health care conglomerates that spread both horizontally and vertically to encompass prescription drug plans and health insurers, retail, specialty, mail order, and long-term care (LTC) pharmacies, giving them immense power to favor the pharmacies they own over the pharmacies they don't. This forces some pharmacies, especially LTC pharmacies, to provide life-saving medications to patients at a cost that could put them out of business and threaten patient access to essential medications, particularly in rural and medically underserved communities. Older Americans with long-term care needs require an average of 12-14 prescriptions per year. They are particularly vulnerable to soaring drug prices, and often least able to adapt when local pharmacies close. This is especially true of Medicare beneficiaries who need long-term care and typically have chronic or medically complex conditions as well. This group requires the medication management and enhanced pharmacy services that LTC pharmacies provide. Any unfair PBM practices that inhibit LTC pharmacy services or force them to close can be life-threatening for the hundreds of thousands of patients they serve daily. Today is a great first step and we thank Rep. James Comer (R-KY) for holding this important forum. Future inquiries must be bipartisan, and since LTC pharmacies and their patients are uniquely impacted by PBMs, we urge Congress to include LTC pharmacies in policy conversations like this one. Congress must pass legislation that requires transparency in PBM drug pricing and related information and provides stronger oversight to hold PBMs accountable.” Learn more about your ad choices.
