Current Treatment Options in Oncology | Year: 2010

Phytochemicals-the bioactive compounds found in plants-not only hold historical significance in various medical traditions, but also form the basis of many modern-day drugs. Phytochemicals are often used for primary disease prevention or as adjuncts to conventional therapies-despite uncertain effectiveness or safety. On the other hand, phytochemicals have given rise to numerous conventional drugs, which are widely used in mainstream medicine and compose the primary therapeutic strategies for numerous conditions (including cancer). In this review, we will discuss general safety considerations for integrating phytochemicals in the oncology setting. The supportive evidence and safety concerns of popular plant-based cancer therapies will also be summarized. Finally, a brief overview of the established and emerging anticancer drugs with botanical origins will be provided. © Springer Science+Business Media, LLC 2010.

Purpose. The development and implementation of a postdischarge home-based, pharmacist-provided medication management service are described. Summary. A work group composed of pharmacy administrators, clinical specialists, physicians, and nursing leadership developed the structure and training requirements to implement the service. Eligible patients were identified during their hospital admission by acute care pharmacists and consented for study participation. Pharmacists and pharmacy residents visited the patient at home after discharge and conducted medication reconciliation, provided patient education, and completed a comprehensive medication review. Recommendations for medication optimization were communicated to the patient's primary care provider, and a reconciled medication list was faxed to the patient's community pharmacy. Demographic and medication-related data were collected to characterize patients receiving the home-based service. A total of 50 patients were seen by pharmacists in the home. Patient education provided by the home-based pharmacists included monitoring instructions, adherence reinforcement, therapeutic lifestyle changes, administration instructions, and medication disposal instructions. Pharmacists provided the following recommendations to providers to optimize medication regimens: adjust dosage, suggest laboratory tests, add medication, discontinue medication, need prescription for refills, and change product formulation. Pharmacists identified a median of two medication discrepancies per patient and made a median of two recommendations for medication optimization to patients' primary care providers. Conclusion. The implementation of a post-discharge, pharmacist-provided home-based medication management service enhanced the continuity of patient care during the transition from hospital to home. Pharmacists identified and resolved medication discrepancies, educated patients about their medications, and provided primary care providers and community pharmacies with a complete and reconciled medication list.
