Pharmacist-driven medication reconciliation reduces oral oncolytic medication errors during transitions of care.
CONCLUSION: The inability to fully confirm patients' home regimen via chart review poses great risk to accurate medication ordering upon hospital admission. Completion of medication reconciliations by pharmacists serves to decrease rates of errors that may occur during hospital admission in cancer patients undergoing treatment with oral oncolytic therapies.

Transitioning hospitalized patients from rivaroxaban or apixaban to a continuous unfractionated heparin infusion: A retrospective review.
CONCLUSION: In the presence of a recently administered oral anti-Xa anticoagulant, more down-titrations occurred in the initial 6 hours of the heparin infusion when measuring anti-Xa activity, and most up-titrations occurred after 36 hours. Baseline heparin anti-Xa activity may be a useful tool to identify patients with residual plasma concentrations of apixaban and rivaroxaban to help better individualize heparin therapy.

Strengths in numbers: Assessing the use of StrengthsFinder 2.0 in a pharmacy residency program.
CONCLUSION: Overall, the top 5 StrengthsFinder 2.0 traits seen in pharmacy residents who have completed a PGY1 or PGY2 residency at Lee Health were: Learner (18%), Achiever (9%), Harmony (7%), Input (6%), and Restorative (6%). Achiever, Harmony, Learner, Input, and Restorative were found to be the most common traits across all categories reported. These trends are similar to those reported in previous studies of StrengthsFinder 2.0 assessment of pharmacy students and residents. Evaluating individual StrengthsFinder 2.0 traits at the start of the residency year provides a framework for each resident to complete ongoing self...

Risperidone- and paliperidone-induced hepatotoxicity: Case report and review of literature.
CONCLUSION: Findings of this case suggest that patients who develop hepatotoxicity with use of risperidone may also do so with paliperidone use; this, in turn, suggests that both risperidone and its metabolite are capable of causing hepatotoxicity. Patients who develop hepatotoxicity in response to risperidone or paliperidone therapy may benefit from treatment with an alternative antipsychotic with a different chemical structure.
