Pharmacists have increased the provision of pharmaceutical care services to patients. However, the financial benefit of various pharmaceutical interventions has not been well described. In this study, we estimated the original economic impact associated with pharmaceutical interventions by an evidenced-based approach.We classified pharmaceutical interventions into 12 items, which included preventions of serious adverse drug reactions (ADRs), and avoidance of drug interaction. The cost saving associated with preventions of serious ADRs was calculated as ¥2,140,000 per case based on the amount of costs that were paid by the Pharmaceuticals and Medical Devices Agency. Interventions to transvenous antimicrobial therapy were estimated to have a cost saving of ¥190,000 per case based on the literature in Japan. The rates of preventing serious ADRs related to chemotherapy orders, high-risk drugs and others were 5.21%, 3.91% and 2.6%, respectively, based on the literature in the United States. Using this rate, the values of intervention related to chemotherapy orders, high-risk drugs and others were ¥112,000, ¥84,000 and ¥56,000, respectively.The number of interventions was 209 per year, including 3 avoidances of serious ADRs. According to the number of interventions, we calculated that the total cost saving associated with pharmaceutical interventions was ¥22,816,000.This is the first study to estimate the economic impact associated with various pharmaceutical interventions of pharmacists in Japan. Evaluating the economic impact in relation to the pharmaceutical interventions is an important method for assessing the role of pharmacists.

It has been reported that earthquakes tend to aggravate the physical and mental conditions of diabetic patients in particular due to interruption of their medication and perhaps tremendous deterioration in their living conditions as well.In this study,we conducted a survey of diabetic patients concerning their preparedness for earthquakes at three hospitals in Ehime Prefecture.The results indicated that many diabetic patients did not have a sufficient supply of emergency medicines in the event of such a disaster.In addition,many seemed to be unaware of the names of the medicines that they were taking.Based on these results and previous findings,we prepared"The Disaster Preparedness Guide for Patients with Diabetes" which includes information on medication,food,and ways of monitoring their health.The printed manual was distributed to hospitals in Ehime Prefecture and the PDF file of it was uploaded to the website of Ehime University Hospital.Afterwards,we conducted an anonymous survey of diabetic patients and medical staff concerning this material.Most respondents considered our guide to be useful for learning about disaster preparations.These findings suggest that it is necessary for medical staff to educate diabetic patients adequately concerning disaster preparations.

We have been conducting a four-week practical hospital training course incorporating experience-oriented programs for fourth-year undergraduate students at Ehime University Hospital. There are 17 such programs in the curriculum among them instruction in the self-administration of insulin and bronchial asthma inhalers, nutrition support, drug counseling training using case-based learning procedures and role-play practice (CBL practice), and evidence based medicine (EBM practice) based on the provision of drug information. Self-learning exercises were devised for CBL and EBM practices. At the end of the practical hospital training course, we conducted a questionnaire survey concerning understandability, extent of previous understanding, training time, necessity of each program and degree of satisfaction with it. Analysis of the responses showed that student satisfaction with the practical training program was positively and significantly correlated with understandability (r=0.756, p<0.01) and degree of experience received (r=0.538, p<0.05). However, there was no correlation between satisfaction and previous understanding, training time or necessity. These results suggest that the experience-oriented programs enhanced students' understanding of the hospital practical training and also increased their satisfaction with it.

At the Division of Pharmacy in Ehime University Hospital, we conduct drug counseling training for undergraduate students and graduate students aimed at helping them acquire communication skills as well as clinical knowledge. The program relies largely on case-based learning (CBL) procedures and role-play practice using video tape recordings. In the following, we describe the drug counseling training program and report the results of a student evaluation of the program. The training program consists of the following : 1. Explanation of the procedure of the practical training; 2. Presentation of a mock case file-including a patient profile, diagnosis, clinical history, laboratory data and prescription; 3. Explanation of how to collect drug information; 4. Study of individual cases by students, 5. Role-play in providing drug counseling and recording this on video (with a student in the counseling role and a pharmacist in the patient role) and 6. Discussion and review by students and clinical pharmacists (including the person who played the patient role) after watching the video recording. After the training, we conducted a survey of the participating students by questionnaire regarding their opinions of the training program. Almost all of the students considered the practical training to be useful because it enabled them to evaluate their performance in drug counseling and communication skills objectively. They also felt that the guidance they had received from clinical pharmacists had been useful. Our training program on drug counseling using CBL procedures and video recordings is thus a simple method of training students which enables them to improve both their communication skills and clinical knowledge.

Medical staff, including physicians, nurses, pharmacists, nutritionists, laboratory medical technologists, social workers, and case managers, should act as a team to support patients with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection. The therapeutic purpose of a potent cocktail of anti-HIV drugs is to maintain undetectable plasma levels of HIV over the long term. To achieve this, it is necessary to maintain treatment compliance. However, noncompliance frequently occurs because of a poor understanding of HIV therapy or difficulty in taking anti-HIV drugs. Thus pharmacists should contribute as HIV medical team members by providing medication counseling to ensure treatment compliance or delivering drug information to achieve successful HIV therapy. We describe the roles of pharmacists on HIV medical teams at Ehime University Hospital in examples of nutritional disorder or pregnant women with HIV.
