Overview

Provides health care professionals in hospitals, managed care organizations, abulatory clinics, home health care agencies and other settings with the tools needed to make clinically efficient, cost effective therapeutic decisions. The product of a multidisciplinary collaborative effort involving 200 health care professionals, the book contains 45 extensively peer-reviewed drug treatment protocols that provide the clinical framework for developing an integrated pharmaceutical care plan. Each protocol begins with the diagnosed condition, and presents current recommended treatments, including drug treatments and, when applicable, nondrug measures and purported complementary treatments.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

This is a resource to assist health professionals in their efforts to use and measure patient outcomes with disease-specific drug treatment protocols. These protocols can be used in a wide variety of patient care settings, including hospitals, managed care organizations, ambulatory clinics, and home health care agencies. Their use will aid health professionals in making clinically efficient, cost-effective therapeutic decisions. The protocols were developed by interdisciplinary panels (pharmacists, nurses, physicians, and other health professionals) and were peer reviewed by clinicians from a broad cross section of patient care areas. The goal of the protocols is to separately address the management of drug therapy as part of the overall disease state and to furnish decision support throughout the evaluation, monitoring, and maintenance processes needed for the provision of pharmaceutical care. Authors and panelists have referenced current national guidelines, along with additional current scientific literature, in the development of these tools. The protocols are presented as templates that can be easily adapted to meet specific local needs. APhA envisions that these templates can be integrated into comprehensive disease management programs to maximize the decision support provided to clinicians about drug therapy.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Brett L. Geiger, PharmD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Pharmacy)
Description: This book contains treatment algorithms for various disease states with accompanying explanatory text and tables. This reference updates the initial publication in 1999.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide drug therapy guidelines based on the evaluation, monitoring, and maintenance processes required for the provision of pharmaceutical care. The templates can be adapted to fit specific hospital and patient population needs. These worthy objectives are satisfied throughout the book.
Audience: The book is written for pharmacists and other healthcare professionals, but it is aimed towards those individuals in a clinical or decision making position within an institution. The American Pharmaceutical Association (APhA), a respected pharmacy organization, published this reference and consulted with numerous experts and specialists in medicine, pharmacy, and nursing.
Features: This book provides drug treatment protocols for a variety of disease states. Various cardiovascular, endocrine, pediatric, psychiatric, gastrointestinal, and respiratory disorders are covered. Additionally, self-treatment conditions (e.g. constipation, cough, colds) and complications related to venous access devices are also presented. It is a well referenced resource with written information to explain the rationale for various decision making steps throughout the algorithm. The book also provides black-and-white treatment algorithms and various tables summarizing pertinent information. Although it was published in 2001, some of the references are not as current as what is now available, and algorithms may need modification at a local level.
Assessment: This compilation of disease state treatment algorithms is a valuable reference. The templates can be modified to meet specific requirements and/or used to help measure current practices and appropriateness of care. Although disease state guidelines and drug therapy algorithms are not uncommon, the publication of numerous protocols in a single book is unique. The second edition is warranted due to evolving drug therapy and newly updated treatment guidelines by various professional organizations.

This book contains treatment algorithms for various disease states with accompanying explanatory text and tables. The purpose of the algorithms is to provide drug therapy guidelines based on the evaluation, monitoring, and maintenance processes required for the provision of pharmaceutical care. The templates can be adapted to fit specific hospital and patient population needs. Pharmacists will probably find this reference most useful. However, all healthcare professionals, especially those in clinical or decision-making positions (e.g., pharmacy and therapeutics (P&T) committee members, etc.), would benefit from this reference. The American Pharmaceutical Association (APhA), a well respected pharmacy organization, consulted numerous experts and specialists in medicine, nursing, and pharmacy for this book. Drug treatment protocols are provided for a variety of disease states. Various cardiovascular, endocrine, gastrointestinal, infectious disease, pediatric, psychiatric, and respiratory disorders are covered. Additionally, self-treatment conditions (e.g., constipation, coughs, colds) and complications related to venous access devices are also presented. The protocols are presented as algorithms and are accompanied by written explanations for each step. Each algorithm is referenced and includes tables that summarize pertinent information. Some treatment algorithms were first published over three years ago and require updating based on new treatment options and recently published literature. This compilation of drug treatment protocols is a valuable reference. The templates can be modified to meet specific requirements and/or used to help measure current practices andappropriateness of care. Although drug treatment protocols are not uncommon, the publication of numerous algorithms in a single textbook is unique.
Booknews
Pharmacists, physicians, nurses, and other health care professionals present 46 evidence-based algorithms to help practitioners make decisions about patient care. The first edition appeared only in 1999, but 39 of the original 44 protocols were revised and two more added after a comprehensive review. Each protocol contains a decision tree and supporting text, begin with diagnosed condition and present currently recommended drug and non-drug treatments, and are based on scientific evidence published in peer-reviewed medical literature enhanced by the clinical experience of the compilers and reviewers.
