This mixed-methods study follows a prospective cohort of patients receiving Mifeprex ® (mifepristone) for medication abortion dispensed by pharmacists after undergoing standard clinical evaluation. Women participating in this study will obtain mifepristone and misoprostol from the pharmacy instead of in the clinic. To assess feasibility, acceptability, and effectiveness of pharmacy dispensing of mifepristone, the study will survey patients, evaluate their clinical outcomes fro...
Canadian WATCHMAN Registry is a multicentre (8 Centres) Canadian prospective, non-randomized, registry to enrol 100 consecutive patients undergoing LAA closure with the WATCHAN device to study the safety and effectiveness of the WATCHMAN device
The main objective of this study is to evaluate the impact of the presence of a pharmacy technician in a care unit (Hepato-Gastroenterology Department) on detected medication errors. This is a before-after study consisting of three sequential phases: Month 1: one month of observation of what is happening in the department Month 2: one month wash out period Month 3: active participation of a pharmacy technician in the department
To evaluate the reasons patients go to more than one prescriber or more than one pharmacy to obtain prescriptions opioids and assess whether the percentage of patients reporting misuse, abuse and/or diversion increases across defined categories of doctor/pharmacy shopping as defined in Study 4A.
The purpose of this study is to determine the effect of a comprehensive pharmacy care program on medication adherence and persistence, blood pressure, and LDL cholesterol.
To document practices in Canadian ICD implant centres around defibrillation therapy efficacy testing.
Each year, Canadian emergency department physicians treat 600,000 patients with head injury. Many of these are adults with "minor head injury", i.e. loss of consciousness or amnesia and a Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) score of 13-15. Only 6.2% of these "minor" patients have some acute injury on computed tomography (CT scan) and only 0.5% have an epidural hematoma requiring surgery. Among Canadian teaching hospital emergency departments, we have shown a fourfold variation in use of C...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether pharmacist-driven patient interventions can have an effect on the number of herpes zoster (Zostavax) vaccinations given in a community pharmacy setting.
Medication errors are considered by WHO to be a subject that requires attention at all levels of care, in order to reduce the serious and preventable damage related to medication. These strategies are aimed at the patient's safety policy. In Colombia, at the regulatory level there is no standardized clinical pharmacy model where the role of the clinical pharmacist is described extensively and in detail, and in addition, data are unknown of the scope or direct effect of the inc...
The internal medicine clinic at Beaumont Hospital - Royal Oak cares for over 900 patients with diabetes. In an effort to improve the care provided to our patients, a pharmacist managed diabetes clinic (PMDC) was created. The investigators looked at patients with high-risk diabetes who have received education in the PMDC and compared them to patients that didn't not receive the pharmacy education. Our preliminary data showed a significant decrease in Hemoglobin A1c in the PMDC c...
In France, consumption of hypnotic drugs is high. In this context, and given the planned regulatory modifications, it seems essential to make an inventory of the consumption of drugs taken for a hypnotic purpose. This study aims to identify the substances (medical or not) used for a hypnotic purpose in the adult population going to a pharmacy.
The aim of this before-after study was to assess the impact of a clinical pharmacy bundle of care activities on patient outcomes (length of hospital stay as a primary endpoint) and cost expenditure in two French ICUs.
Self-management of medical abortion (MA) pills purchased from pharmacies is considered to be one of the reasons behind falling morbidity and mortality from unsafe abortion in recent years. While pharmacy workers commonly sell MA medications over the counter, they have inadequate knowledge about how women should take the medications and their potential complications, and do not offer adequate information and counselling to women buying the drugs. This study aims to evaluate if a...
Complications resulting from medications, or adverse drug events (ADEs), are prevalent and are a major source of excess morbidity and costs. ADEs are particularly problematic in older patients because of their higher burden of comorbidity and diminished physiologic reserve. In addition, older patients are more likely to be exposed to polypharmacy, a major risk factor for ADEs. While ADEs may be idiosyncratic, many result from medical errors and inadequate systems for ensurin...
The aim of this study is to determine the effectiveness of language and culturally appropriate diabetes cooking classes in improving glycemic control, increasing diabetes knowledge and diabetes self-management activities in Chinese-Canadian patients with diabetes, as compared to current standard care of patients attending diabetes education classes in the city of Richmond, BC, Canada.
This study will test whether enhanced continuity of pharmacy care that includes increased communication between inpatient and outpatient settings will improve the appropriateness of medication therapy and reduce the number of serious adverse drug events, hospitalizations and unscheduled office visits in vulnerable patients with cardiovascular disease, pulmonary disease or diabetes.
This study aims to assess whether it is feasible to use a point of care test to increase the detection of coeliac disease in a pharmacy setting.
Stress affects the health and is prevalent among medicine and pharmacy students. A number of factors such as busy schedules, course load and lack of recreational time during semesters as well as exams, have been reported to be associated with stress. Study reports that the use of aroma oils especially those with relaxant properties can alleviate the level of stress. This study aims to investigate the effects of aroma oils in stress during exams in pharmacy students.
This study aims to compare patient use of and satisfaction with community pharmacist-delivered pharmacogenetic (PGx) testing delivered along or as part of a medication therapy management (MTM) service. Pharmacist and patient outcome measures will be collected by surveys, interviews, and review of pharmacy records.
The investigators propose a randomized encouragement trial to encourage use of the existing mail order pharmacy services among diabetes patients with poor adherence to CVD risk factor medications in 3 health care systems: Kaiser Permanente Northern California, Harvard Pilgrim, and Kaiser Permanente Hawaii.
This study seeks to determine whether education provided in community pharmacies and monthly reminder calls can improve compliance with asthma medications. We hypothesize that those pediatric patients with asthma 12 months to 12 years of age who receive comprehensive asthma care as part of a validated intervention (1) who are randomized to receive enhanced community pharmacy care will have significantly greater compliance with inhaled corticosteroids (ICS) six months after enr...
This study will develop, implement and evaluate a deprescribing initiative at a Canadian Long Term Care (LTC) Facility. Residents currently undergo an annual medication review as part of the clinical pharmacy services provided in the LTC facility. For this study, eligible residents will be randomized to receive either a deprescribing focused medication review or usual care. The deprescribing focused medication therapy assessments will be done on 33 the 66 patients residi...
