Information to Pharmacists

Editorial

From the desk of the editor

Welcome to the July 2014 homepage edition of i2P (Information to Pharmacists) E-Magazine.
At the commencement of 2014 i2P focused on the need for the entire profession of pharmacy and its associated industry supports to undergo a renewal and regeneration.
We are now half-way through this year and it is quite apparent that pharmacy leaders do not yet have a cohesive and clear sense of direction.
Maybe the new initiative by Woolworths to deliver clinical service through young pharmacists and nurses may sharpen their focus.
If not, community pharmacy can look forward to losing a substantial and profitable market share of the clinical services market.
Who would you blame when that happens?
But I have to admit there is some effort, even though the results are but meagre.
In this edition of i2P we focus on the need for research about community pharmacy, the lack of activity from practicing pharmacists and when some research is delivered, a disconnect appears in its interpretation and implementation.

Feature Contribution

Woolworths Pharmacy - Getting One Stage Closer

Neil Johnston

It started with “tablet” computers deployed on shelves inside the retailer Coles, specifically to provide information to consumers relating to pain management and the sale of strong analgesics.
This development was reported in i2P under the title Coles Pharmacy Expansion and the Arid PGA Landscape”
In that article we reported that qualified information was a missing link that had come out of Coles market research as the reason to why it had not succeeded in dominating the pain market.
Of course, Woolworths was working on the same problem at the same time and had come up with a better solution - real people with good information.

Intensive Exposition without crossing over with a supermarket

Fiona Sartoretto Verna AIAPP

Editor's Note: The understanding of a pharmacy's presentation through the research that goes into the design of fixtures and fittings that highlight displays, is a never-ending component of pharmacy marketing.
Over the past decade, Australian pharmacy shop presentations have fallen behind in standards of excellence.
It does not take rocket science - you just have to open your eyes.
Recently, our two major supermarkets, Woolworths and Coles, have entered into the field of drug and condition information provision - right into the heartland of Australian Pharmacy.

The sure way to drive business away

Gerald Quigley

I attended the Pregnancy, Baby and Children’s Expo in Brisbane recently.
What an eye and ear opening event that was!
Young Mums, mature Mums, partners of all ages, grandparents and friends……...many asking about health issues and seeking reassurances that they were doing the right thing.

‘Marketing Based Medicine’ – how bad is it?

Baz Bardoe

It should be the scandal of the century.
It potentially affects the health of almost everyone.
Healthcare providers and consumers alike should be up in arms. But apart from coverage in a few credible news sources the problem of ‘Marketing Based Medicine,’ as psychiatrist Dr Peter Parry terms it, hasn’t as yet generated the kind of universal outrage one might expect.

Community Pharmacy Research - Are You Involved?

Mark Coleman

Government funding is always scarce and restricted.
If you are ever going to be a recipient of government funds you will need to fortify any application with evidence.
From a government perspective, this minimises risk.
I must admit that while I see evidence of research projects being managed by the PGA, I rarely see community pharmacists individually and actively engaged in the type of research that would further their own aims and objectives (and survival).

Organisational Amnesia and the Lack of a Curator Inhibits Cultural Progress

Neil Johnston

Most of us leave a tremendous impact on pharmacies we work for (as proprietors, managers, contractors or employees)—in ways we’re not even aware of.
But organisational memories are often all too short, and without a central way to record that impact and capture the knowledge and individual contributions, they become lost to time.
It is ironic that technology has provided us with phenomenal tools for communication and connection, but much of it has also sped up our work lives and made knowledge and memory at work much more ephemeral.

Academics on the payroll: the advertising you don't see

Staff Writer

This article was first published in The Conversation and was written by Wendy Lipworth, University of Sydney and Ian Kerridge, University of Sydney
In the endless drive to get people’s attention, advertising is going ‘native’, creeping in to places formerly reserved for editorial content. In this Native Advertising series we find out what it looks like, if readers can tell the difference, and more importantly, whether they care.
i2P has republished the article as it supports our own independent and ongoing investigations on how drug companies are involved in marketing-based medicine rather than evidence-based medicine.

I’ve been thinking about admitting wrong.

Mark Neuenschwander

Editor's Note: This is an early article by Mark Neuenschwander we have republished after the soul-searching surrounding a recent Australian dispensing error involving methotrexate.
Hmm. There’s more than one way you could take that, huh? Like Someday when I get around to it (I’m not sure) I may admit that I was wrong about something. Actually, I’ve been thinking about the concept of admitting wrong. So don’t get your hopes up. No juicy confessions this month except that I wish it were easier for me to admit when I have been wrong or made a mistake.
Brian Goldman, an ER physician from Toronto, is host of the award-winning White Coat, Black Art on CBC Radio and slated to deliver the keynote at The unSUMMIT for Bedside Barcoding in Anaheim this May. His TED lecture, entitled, “Doctors make mistakes. Can we talk about it?” had already been viewed by 386,072 others before I watched it last week.

Dispensing errors – a ripple effect of damage

Kay Dunkley - BPharm, Grad Dip Hosp Pharm, Grad Dip Health Admin, MPS, MSHPA

Most readers will be aware of recent publicity relating to dispensing errors and in particular to deaths caused by methotrexate being incorrectly packed in dose administration aids.
The Pharmacy Board of Australia (PBA), in its Communique of 13 June 2014, described a methotrexate packing error leading to the death of a patient and noted “extra vigilance is required to be exercised by pharmacists with these drugs”.
This same case was reported by A Current Affair (ACA) in its program on Friday 20 June

Take a vacation from your vocation

Harvey Mackay

Have you ever had one of those days when all you could think was, “Gosh, do I need a vacation.”
Of course you have – because all work and no play aren’t good for anyone.
A vacation doesn’t have to be two weeks on a tropical island, or even a long weekend at the beach. 
A vacation just means taking a break from your everyday activities. 
A change of pace. 
It doesn’t matter where.
Everyone needs a vacation to rejuvenate mentally and physically. 
But did you also know that you can help boost our economy by taking some days off? 
Call it your personal stimulus package.

Explainer: what is peer review?

Staff Writer

This article was first published in the Conversation. It caught our eye because "peer review" it is one of the standards for evidence-based medicines that has also been corrupted by global pharma.
The article is republished by i2P as part of its ongoing investigation into scientific fraud and was writtenby Andre Spicer, City University London and Thomas Roulet, University of Oxford
We’ve all heard the phrase “peer review” as giving credence to research and scholarly papers, but what does it actually mean?
How does it work?
Peer review is one of the gold standards of science. It’s a process where scientists (“peers”) evaluate the quality of other scientists' work. By doing this, they aim to ensure the work is rigorous, coherent, uses past research and adds to what we already knew.
Most scientific journals, conferences and grant applications have some sort of peer review system. In most cases it is “double blind” peer review. This means evaluators do not know the author(s), and the author(s) do not know the identity of the evaluators.
The intention behind this system is to ensure evaluation is not biased.
The more prestigious the journal, conference, or grant, the more demanding will be the review process, and the more likely the rejection. This prestige is why these papers tend to be more read and more cited.

Dentists from the dark side?

Loretta Marron OAM BSc

While dining out with an elderly friend, I noticed that he kept his false tooth plate in his shirt pocket. He had recently had seven amalgam-filled teeth removed, because he believed that their toxins were making him sick; but his new plate was uncomfortable. He had been treated by an 'holistic dentist'. Claiming to offer a "safe and healthier alternative" to conventional dentistry, are they committed to our overall health and wellbeing or are they promoting unjustified fear, unnecessarily extracting teeth and wasting our money?

Planning for Profit in 2015 – Your key to Business Success

Chris Foster

We are now entering a new financial year and it’s a great time to reflect on last year and highlight those things that went well and those that may have impacted negatively in the pursuit of your goals.
It's also a great to spend some time re-evaluating your personal and business short, medium and long term goals in the light of events over the last year.
The achievement of your goals will in many cases be dependent on setting and aspiring to specific financial targets. It's important that recognise that many of your personal goals will require you to generate sufficient business profits to fund those aspirations

Attracting and Retaining Great People

Barry Urquhart

Welcome to the new financial year in Australia.
For many in business the past year has been described as a challenging period.
Adjectives are a key feature of the English language.  In the business lexicon their use can be, and often is evocative and stimulate creative images.  But they can also contribute to inexact, emotional perceptions.
Throughout the financial pages of newspapers and business magazines adjectives abound.
References to “hot” money draw attention and comment.  The recent wave of funds from Chinese investors, keen to remove their wealth from the jurisdiction and control of government regulations is creating a potential property bubble in Australia.

Updating Your Values - Extending Your Culture

Neil Johnston

Pharmacy culture is dormant.
Being comprised of values, unless each value is continually addressed, updated or deleted, entire organisations can stagnate (or entire professions such as the pharmacy profession).
Good values offer a strong sense of security, knowing that if you operate within the boundaries of your values, you will succeed in your endeavours.

Evidence-based medicine is broken. Why we need data and technology to fix it

Staff Writer

The following article is reprinted from The Conversation and forms up part of our library collection on evidence-based medicines.
At i2P we also believe that the current model of evidence is so fractured it will never be able to be repaired.
All that can happen is that health professionals should independently test and verify through their own investigations what evidence exists to prescribe a medicine of any potency.
Health professionals that have patients (such as pharmacists) are ideally placed to observe and record the efficacy for medicines.
All else should confine their criticisms to their evidence of the actual evidence published.
If there are holes in it then share that evidence with the rest of the world.
Otherwise, do not be in such a hurry to criticise professions that have good experience and judgement to make a good choice on behalf of their patients, simply because good evidence has not caught up with reality.

Laropiprant is the Bad One; Niacin is/was/will always be the Good One

Staff Writer

Orthomolecular Medicine News Service, July 25, 2014
Laropiprant is the Bad One; Niacin is/was/will always be the Good One
by W. Todd Penberthy, PhD

(OMNS July 25, 2014) Niacin has been used for over 60 years in tens of thousands of patients with tremendously favorable therapeutic benefit (Carlson 2005).
In the first-person NY Times best seller, "8 Weeks to a Cure for Cholesterol," the author describes his journey from being a walking heart attack time bomb to a becoming a healthy individual.
He hails high-dose niacin as the one treatment that did more to correct his poor lipid profile than any other (Kowalski 2001).

Culture Drive & Pharmacy Renewal

Neil Johnston

Deep within all of us we have a core set of values and beliefs that create the standards of behaviour that we align with when we set a particular direction in life.
Directions may change many times over a lifetime, but with life experiences and maturity values may increase in number or gain greater depth.
All of this is embraced under one word – “culture”.
When a business is born it will only develop if it has a sound culture, and the values that comprise that culture are initially inherent in the business founder.
A sound business culture equates to a successful business and that success is often expressed in the term “goodwill” which can be eventually translated to a dollar value.

Pharmacy 2014 - Pharmacy Management Conference

Neil Johnston

The brave new world of health and wellness is not the enemy of Pharmacy, it is its champion.
Australian futurist, Morris Miselowski, one of the world's leading business visionaries, will present the Opening Keynote address on Pharmacy's Future in the new Health and Wellness Landscape at 2.00pm on Wednesday July 30.
Morris believes the key to better health care could already be in your pocket, with doctors soon set to prescribe iPhone apps, instead of pills.
Technology will revolutionise the health industry - a paradigm shift from healthcare to personal wellness.
Health and wellness applications on smartphones are already big news, and are dramatically changing the way we manage our personal health and everyday wellness.

Generation and Application of Community Pharmacy Research

Neil Johnston

Editor’s Note: We have had a number of articles in this issue relating to pharmacy research.
The PGA has conducted a number of research initiatives over the years, including one recently reported in Pharmacy News that resulted from an analysis of the QCPP Patient Questionnaire.
Pharmacy Guild president, George Tambassis, appears to have authored the article following, and there also appears to be a disconnect between the survey report and its target audience illustrated by one of the respondent comments published.
I have asked Mark Coleman to follow through, elaborate and comment:

PSA WELCOMES NEW PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY

The Pharmaceutical Society of Australia has welcomed the appointment of Mr Mark Butler as the new Parliamentary Secretary for Health.

President of the PSA, Warwick Plunkett, said the appointment of Mr Butler brought a wealth of experience into the portfolio which would act as an impetus in implementing the Government’s extensive health agenda.

“I look forward to working with Mr Butler in the interests of Australian consumers and members of the Pharmaceutical Society of Australia, the organisation that represents the professional interests of pharmacists across the nation,” Mr Plunkett said.

“The PSA provides standards of practice, education, training and practice support for pharmacists and helps members of the profession to deliver quality health care to consumers.

“As such, the PSA is in a unique position to provide support and assistance to Mr Butler in his role as Parliamentary Secretary for Health.

“The health system in Australia is going through a period of unprecedented change and the challenges facing it require a cohesive and intelligent response by everyone involved in the health-care system in this country.”

Mr Plunkett said the PSA was focused on helping the Government secure the best health outcomes for all Australians.

“Pharmacists are the most accessible and highly regarded health-care professionals in the country and as such are ideally placed to help develop and implement health-care policies for the betterment of all consumers.

“In particular, the area of preventive health care is one in which pharmacists already lead the way in Australia and the PSA looks forward to working with Mr Butler to further the role of pharmacists in this pivotal preventive role.”

Mr Plunkett also thanked the former Parliamentary Secretary for Health and Ageing, Senator Jan McLucas, for her work and dedication in the role.

“PSA had a strong and robust working relationship with Senator McLucas and I wish her every success in the future,” Mr Plunkett said.

PSA WELCOMES NEW HEALTH PORTFOLIO

The announcement of the establishment of a new Indigenous Health, Rural and Regional Health and Regional Services Delivery portfolio has been welcomed by the Pharmaceutical Society of Australia.

President of the PSA, Warwick Plunkett, said the establishment of the new portfolio was recognition of the unique and challenging issues faced by indigenous health consumers as well as those living in non-urban areas of Australia.

“Often people living in rural, regional and remote areas of Australia face enormous difficulties when it comes to their health-care needs,” Mr Plunkett said.

“In addition, indigenous health has its own unique challenges which the establishment of this portfolio will go a long way towards addressing.

“The PSA, as the organisation that represents the professional interests of pharmacists across the nation, is well aware of these difficulties and has long advocated policies and programs to help address them.

“The establishment the Indigenous Health, Rural and Regional Health and Regional Services Delivery portfolio gives the Government and health-care professionals in Australia a vehicle from which to work to improve the health needs and outcomes of indigenous Australians and those living in non-urban areas.”

Mr Plunkett said the appointment of Mr Warren Snowdon as Minister for Indigenous Health, Rural and Regional Health and Regional Services Delivery underscored the importance of the portfolio.

“Mr Snowdon is a widely experienced politician and as a member for a rural area has first-hand knowledge and experience of some of the issues and difficulties faced by consumers in these areas,” Mr Plunkett said.

“On behalf of the PSA, I congratulate Mr Snowdon on his appointment and look forward to working closely with him and his new department to help achieve the outcomes that people in these areas so demonstrably need.”

FRIENDLY SOCIETIES BACK PHARMACIST SUPPORT SERVICE

The Pharmacists’ Support Service (PSS) has been boosted with the announcement that the Australian Friendly Societies Pharmacy Association has committed to provide financial support to the service for the next three years.

PSS has been assisting Victorian pharmacists since 1995 by providing telephone counselling and support to distressed pharmacists.

The President of the Victorian Branch of the Pharmaceutical Society of Australia, Mark Feldschuh, said the commitment was significant and sees the Friendly Societies join PDL as major backers of the PSS.

“The support of PDL and AFSPA acknowledges that the PSS is for the benefit of all pharmacists whatever their area of practice or their particular organisational membership,” Mr Feldschuh said.

“The service is there for pharmacists during times of trauma, distress or need and offers counselling to these pharmacists. PSS operates on the Lifeline model of telephone counselling and can be contacted on a toll free number 1300 244 910.”

Mr Feldschuh said the PSS telephone line is answered by volunteer pharmacists who have undertaken extensive training and are able to relate with the problems faced by pharmacists.

“But to expand the service and effectively assist pharmacists outside Victoria, PSS needs financial support to build resources and to develop a network of contacts in each state of Australia,” Mr Feldschuh said.

“At the moment PSS is able to operate on a tight budget because of the generosity of its volunteers. However funding is required for training and administration to ensure that the service is effective and of a high quality. The commitment of the Friendlies and the ongoing backing of PDL are pivotal to the ongoing success of the service.”

Both AFSPA and PDL will now be represented on the committee of management of PSS.

“Donations and sponsorship from pharmacists and pharmacy organisations are being sought so that PSS can expand throughout Australia,” Mr Feldschuh said.

GUILD GROUP TO HELP FUND PHARMACISTS’ SUPPORT SERVICE

Specialist pharmacy insurance, financial and professional services provider, the Guild Group, has announced it will contribute $10,000 towards the Pharmacists’ Support Service (PSS).

The funds are part of a drive to expand the PSS from a Victorian-based service to a national service to benefit pharmacist across the country. PSS has been assisting Victorian pharmacists since 1995 by providing telephone counselling and support to distressed pharmacists.

The President of the Victorian Branch of the Pharmaceutical Society of Australia, Mark Feldschuh, said the Guild Group’s commitment would be a great help in expanding the service.

“The Guild Group has long been a great supporter of pharmacy in Australia and its recognition of the value of PSS, and of the contribution PSS makes to the welfare of pharmacists across Australia, is most welcome,” he said.

“PSS is for the benefit of all pharmacists whatever their area of practice or where they are located,” Mr Feldschuh said.

“The service is there for pharmacists during times of trauma, distress or need and offers counselling to these pharmacists. PSS operates on the Lifeline model of telephone counselling and can be contacted on a toll free number 1300 244 910.”

Mr Feldschuh said the PSS telephone line is answered by volunteer pharmacists who have extensive training and can relate with the problems faced by pharmacists.

“The value of the service is such that there is a call for it to be available nationally and it is contributions such as this by the Guild Group that will help us achieve this objective,” Mr Feldschuh said.

Guild Insurance General Manager David Brown said, “PSS provide an important service to pharmacy that we feel is well worth supporting. As an insurance, financial services and professional services provider, the Guild Group is a partner to pharmacy. This partnership is realised through our significant contributions to pharmacy events and organisations and our support for services such as PSS.”

“PSS operates on a tight budget because of the generosity of its volunteers. However funding is required for training and administration to ensure that the service is effective and of a high quality. The Guild Group’s commitment will help to ensure the service remains effective and of the highest quality.

“Donations and sponsorship from pharmacists and pharmacy organisations are being sought so that PSS can expand throughout Australia.”

TIME TO CONSIDER EXPANDING PRESCRIBING RIGHTS


Governments and health professionals across Australia need to give full and detailed consideration to granting pharmacists and other non-medial health professionals the right to prescribe medications, the Pharmaceutical Society of Australia says.

President of the PSA, Warwick Plunkett, said today that some non-medical health professions have already been granted prescribing rights and it was time that this right was also granted to pharmacists.

Mr Plunkett said pharmacists were ideally placed to prescribe because of their detailed knowledge of medications and their face-to-face interaction with consumers.

“Pharmacists are guided by the principles of quality use of medicines and securing the optimum health outcomes for consumers and these are fundamental to the guidelines for prescribing,” he said.

Authorities should also consider extending prescribing nights to other non-medical health professionals but a focused approach was needed in any such decision.

“In most cases the process has largely been driven by each health professional group and implemented on an ad hoc basis without the opportunity to consider uniformity, common goals and core principles across all health professions,” he said.

“It is time to formally consider prescribing by pharmacists and other non-medical health professionals as a major initiative to help facilitate a more efficient and effective health system.”

But Mr Plunkett said any approval must be based on some solid principles including:

* Patient safety and access to high-quality care being of paramount importance in any such initiative

* Prescribing rights being granted in a way that helps to enhance timely access to medicines

* Prescribing rights being granted in a safe and cost-effective manner for the consumer

· Health professionals having a full understanding of, and a commitment to, the principles of the Quality Use of Medicines

· Prescribing and dispensing functions being clearly delineated.

”The PSA believes such a framework must be focused on consumers and be underpinned by a primary concern for the delivery of safe and high-quality care,” Mr Plunkett said.

“It must also enhance the timely access to medicines and to maintaining a continuity of care; as well as promoting the quality use of medicines.”

NOMINATIONS SOUGHT FOR PSA AWARDS FOR EXCELLENCE

Nominations for the prestigious 2009 Pharmaceutical Society of Australia Awards for Excellence are being called for with winners to be announced at the Pharmacy Congress Australia in October.

The PSA’s Pharmacist of the Year, Young Pharmacist of the Year and Lifetime Recognition Awards are regarded in the profession as pinnacles of achievement and are held in the highest esteem both within and outside the profession.

The President of the PSA, Warwick Plunkett, said the Pharmacist of the Year and Young Pharmacist Awards recognised the special individual contributions to the professional advancement of pharmacy in 2009 while the Lifetime Achievement Award recognised an individual’s contribution over a longer period.

“These awards symbolise the highest standards and principles of the pharmacy profession in Australia in 2009 and give recipients a status among the pharmacy profession and among other health professionals which is second to none,” Mr Plunkett said.

“They represent a standard that reflects the recipients’ commitment and dedication to their profession in 2009 and beyond which is exemplary in a field that already boasts standards of a calibre that are the envy of many health professionals.

“The PSA Excellence Awards are the pharmacy profession’s most prestigious awards, recognising individual achievement and the important contribution that the pharmacy profession makes to the whole of Australian society.

“They acknowledge the achievers of the profession: those involved in innovative practice; those who are striving to raise practice standards; and pharmacists who, through their professionalism, provide a model of practice which others strive to emulate.”

Mr Plunkett said the awards were made possible through the generous sponsorship of Symbion Pharmacy Services whose retail brands include Chemmart and Terry White Chemists, and while a nominee must be a member of PSA, there is no restriction on who may lodge a nomination.

“Nominations are sought for pharmacists from all sectors of practice – community, hospital, consultancy, industry, education, academia, defence, government, research and other areas,” Mr Plunkett said.

“This is an opportunity for fellow pharmacists to recognise their peers or for the public to nominate a pharmacist in any field who they believe displays a standard of excellence which makes them exceptional.”

Further details of the awards are available at: http://www.psa.org.au/excellenceawards
