    The Express Scripts decision removes the option for Tricare beneficiaries to get prescriptions at the pharmacies of their choice. The National Community Pharmacists Association (NCPA) CEO B. Douglas Hoey, PharmD, MBA, warns that “access to needed medications for Tricare beneficiaries is in peril.”   This decision is estimated to impact hundreds of thousands of beneficiaries relying on certain pharmacies (or locations) to get prescriptions—those who cannot get their prescription at the pharmacy of their choice may fall out of care.   Consequently, patients may lose access to the potentially lifesaving treatments that specialty and independent pharmacies can provide, especially for patients with critical illnesses such as HIV, among other illnesses. In a recent analysis, experts suggested that the contract, made with the US Department of Defense (DOD), could shrink the retail pharmaceutical network by 15,000 pharmacies.   Guest  Alan Rosenbloom President & CEO Senior Care Pharmacy Coalition

    Please visit our website to listen to prior podcast 1, 2 & 3 at https://lnkd.in/gsrjnv9P The Specialty Pharmacy Healthcare eco-systems is becoming more efficient in the way they intake and treat patients, and patients are becoming more well-informed. Efficient and accurate communication among doctors, nurses, support staff, and patients has never been more important. With streams of information constantly flowing, there are ample opportunities for the chain of communication to break down and become a barrier to care—meaning delays in care for patients, and bottlenecks to clinician productivity. Specialty Pharmacies are more collaborative with their patient-engagement teams capabilities that strengthen this point of care. These healthcare solutions enable team members to drive key decisions with confidence, no matter where they are. With the freedom to focus less on ordering a specialty prescription, tracking down supplies, or logging data, patient care teams can focus more on what matters most: the patients. Therefore, specialty pharmacies differ, not by location, but by services offered and conditions treated. When treating chronic and rare conditions, those differences add up to make a big impact on patient success. The specialty pharmacies are improving drug treatment outcomes and breaking down the barriers that make patient access difficult. Patients facing complex, chronic, rare, or life-threatening conditions rely on the added support and resources a specialty pharmacy provides Learn more about your ad choices.

Last year he attended the annual Boston Trauma Conference and heard for the first time about the use of psychedelic medicines for treatment of trauma. So after a 150 hour certification program at Integrative Psychiatry Institute he became certified in psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy which now is part of his current practice. Just this year in January he went into private practice so he can focus more on psychedelics.

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) which is one of the most common psychiatric disorders which affects about 8 million adults at some point in their lifetime in the United States. But it is not clear as to why only some people who experience a traumatic event develop PTSD. Some people say it's a social construct but in the largest and most diverse genetic study of PTSD to date, scientists from University of California San Diego School of Medicine and more than 130 additional institutions participating in the Psychiatric Genomics Consortium found that PTSD has a strong genetic component similar to other psychiatric disorders. Genetics seem to accounts for between 5 and 20 percent of the variability in PTSD risk following a traumatic event.

And, as an historic win, Medicare will be able to negotiate prices for high-cost drugs for the first time ever.

    Dr. Nardine Nakhla's career has had one common denominator since her graduation in 2007 from Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences — striving to help as many people as possible. That desire is seen in her work with students, as a faculty member at the University of Waterloo's School of Pharmacy. Dr. Nakhla's patient-centered approach also comes through in her research, which has focused on issues like smoking cessation and high-risk, non-prescription drug interactions in older people. Her professional writing also reflects her desire to help patients. Dr. Nakhla has authored four chapters for the Canadian Minor Ailments reference, one chapter for the American Handbook of Nonprescription Drugs, and one chapter for the Encyclopedia of Pharmacy Practice and Clinical Pharmacy.     In this episode of Occupation Station, Dr. Nakhla talks about how her career path evolved. She entered ACPHS thinking that she would devote herself to community practice. While she and her husband do own a community pharmacy, she has achieved so much more than she initially envisioned. Hear why she calls her time at ACPHS “magical” and how the school has led to lifelong friendships and meaningful connections with professors.
