From the Front Lines
Appropriate Medication Use in Post-Acute and Long-Term Care
From the Front Lines is a monthly publication of AlixaRx Pharmacy that shares best practices and medication-related challenges faced by “front line” staff in long-term care and post-acute (LTCPAC) facilities. Members of the interdisciplinary team are encouraged to submit articles about actual issues addressed each day in their living centers and especially how they were able to address these issues as a team. Our goal is to learn from each other so that we may better serve the patients in our care.
In this month’s issue of From the Front Lines, AlixaRx Clinical Pharmacists address the race to develop a Zika vaccine, use of psychopharmacological medications for behavior control, an FDA warning for Loperamide use, and new oral anticoagulants.
