141. The relationship between area deprivation and prescription of long-acting reversible contraception in women of reproductive age in Lothian, Scotland, UK. (PubMed)

the relationship between area deprivation measured by the Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation and LARC prescription.Using Scottish electronic prescribing data from primary care and sexual and reproductive health clinics, this study analysed female Lothian residents with a valid postcode aged 16-49 years who received a contraceptive prescription from 1 April 2012 to 31 March 2014.

The relationship between area deprivation and prescription of long-acting reversible contraception in women of reproductive age in Lothian, Scotland, UK. Reducing unplanned pregnancy in Scotland is a key government objective. Long-acting reversible contraception (LARC) is a cost-effective way to reduce unintended pregnancy. Abortion and teenage pregnancy rates are highest in the most deprived areas. One possible explanation could be contraceptive prescribing inequality. This study examined

Past-year prevalence of prescription opioid misuse among those 11 to 30years of age in the United States: A systematic review and meta-analysis. There are high levels of prescription and consumption of prescription opioids in the US. Misuse of prescription opioids has been shown to be highly correlated with prescription opioid-related morbidity and mortality including fatal and non-fatal overdose. We characterized the past-year prevalence of prescription opioid misuse among those 11-30years (...) of age in the US.A systematic review and meta-analysis were carried out following a published protocol and PRISMA guidelines. We searched electronic databases; reports were eligible if they were published between 1/1/1990-5/30/2014, and included data on individuals 11-30years of age from the US.

143. Averting a zombie prescription apocalypse

. These “zombie prescriptions” are a patient safety threat that physicians face daily. Zombie prescriptions have been lurking in our offices for years, but I’ve become more aware of them lately because of the way my practice manages prescription refills. To reduce administrative burdens on physicians, we have protocols for refilling chronic medications, such as antihypertensive and oral hypoglycemic drugs. If the electronic health record (EHR) confirms that the patient is on the drug and he or she is up (...) at another common type of zombie prescription, one where a medication was not discontinued but its dose was adjusted, yet the pharmacy continued to dispense the old dose. While the authors used EHRs to expose the phenomenon, we shouldn’t blame zombie prescriptions on EHRs and electronic prescribing. Even in the paper prescription era, we did not explicitly notify pharmacies that we were discontinuing a medication. However, in the good old days, patients usually filled all of their prescriptions in one

Smokers making a quit attempt using e-cigarettes with or without nicotine or prescription nicotine replacement therapy: Impact on cardiovascular function (ISME-NRT) - a study protocol. The estimated number of cigarette smokers in the world is 1.3 billion, expected to rise to 1.7 billion by 2025, with 10 million smokers living in the U.K. Smoking is the leading, preventable death-cause worldwide, being responsible for almost 650,000 deaths in the E.U. annually. A combination of pharmacological (...) interventions, including nicotine replacement therapy, bupropion and varenicline, and behavioural support is the most effective approach to smoking cessation. However, even the best methods have high relapse rates of approximately 75% within 6 months. Electronic (or "e-") cigarettes use battery power to disperse a solution that usually contains propylene glycol or glycerine, water, flavouring and nicotine.

The effect of a test ordering software intervention on the prescription of unnecessary laboratory tests - a randomized controlled trial.

The fact that it was not possible to perform the randomization at the family physicians' level, but only of the computer servers is a limitation of our study.

148. Predictive Modeling of Physician-Patient Dynamics That Influence Sleep Medication Prescriptions and Clinical Decision-Making (PubMed)

Predictive Modeling of Physician-Patient Dynamics That Influence Sleep Medication Prescriptions and Clinical Decision-Making Insomnia remains under-diagnosed and poorly treated despite its high economic and social costs. Though previous work has examined how patient characteristics affect sleep medication prescriptions, the role of physician characteristics that influence this clinical decision remains unclear. We sought to understand patient and physician factors that influence sleep (...) medication prescribing patterns by analyzing Electronic Medical Records (EMRs) including the narrative clinical notes as well as codified data. Zolpidem and trazodone were the most widely prescribed initial sleep medication in a cohort of 1,105 patients. Some providers showed a historical preference for one medication, which was highly predictive of their future prescribing behavior. Using a predictive model (AUC = 0.77), physician preference largely determined which medication a patient received

Emergency department discharge prescription errors in an academic medical center This study described discharge prescription medication errors written for emergency department patients. This study used content analysis in a cross-sectional design to systematically categorize prescription errors found in a report of 1000 discharge prescriptions submitted in the electronic medical record in February 2015. Two pharmacy team members reviewed the discharge prescription list for errors. Open-ended (...) data were coded by an additional rater for agreement on coding categories. Coding was based upon majority rule. Descriptive statistics were used to address the study objective. Categories evaluated were patient age, provider type, drug class, and type and time of error. The discharge prescription error rate out of 1000 prescriptions was 13.4%, with "incomplete or inadequate prescription" being the most commonly detected error (58.2%). The adult and pediatric error rates were 11.7% and 22.7
