Aminoglycosides : Pharmacology, Clinical Uses and Health Effects

 Pharmacology  Comments Off on Aminoglycosides : Pharmacology, Clinical Uses and Health Effects
Aug 172018
 

Aminoglycosides are a commonly used class of antibiotic worldwide, with examples including gentamicin, tobramycin and amikacin. Their low cost, together with their effectiveness against Gram-negative organisms, including Pseudomonas aeruginosa, makes them a valuable tool in treating infections. In addition, aminoglycosides have demonstrated lower rates of resistance in both community and healthcare settings when compared with many other antimicrobials and exhibit synergistic activity with beta-lactams against certain Gram-positive organisms, such as streptococcus and enterococcus. Unfortunately, aminoglycosides exhibit a narrow therapeutic index, which can result in toxicity if care is not taken with their use. This book reviews the pharmacology, clinical uses and health effects of aminoglycosides.

Pharmocracy: Value, Politics, and Knowledge in Global Biomedicine

 Pharmacology  Comments Off on Pharmocracy: Value, Politics, and Knowledge in Global Biomedicine
Jul 262018
 

Continuing his pioneering theoretical explorations into the relationships among biosciences, the market, and political economy, Kaushik Sunder Rajan introduces the concept of pharmocracy to explain the structure and operation of the global hegemony of the multinational pharmaceutical industry. He reveals pharmocracy’s logic in two case studies from contemporary India: the controversial introduction of an HPV vaccine in 2010, and the Indian Patent Office’s denial of a patent for an anticancer drug in 2006 and ensuing legal battles. In each instance health was appropriated by capital and transformed from an embodied state of well-being into an abstract category made subject to capital’s interests. These cases demonstrate the precarious situation in which pharmocracy places democracy, as India’s accommodation of global pharmaceutical regulatory frameworks pits the interests of its citizens against those of international capital. Sunder Rajan’s insights into this dynamic make clear the high stakes of pharmocracy’s intersection with health, politics, and democracy.

Letters From Rising Pharmacy Stars: Advice on Creating and Advancing Your Career in a Changing Profession

 Pharmacology  Comments Off on Letters From Rising Pharmacy Stars: Advice on Creating and Advancing Your Career in a Changing Profession
Jul 082018
 

Today’s new health-system pharmacists face challenges and opportunities unknown even a few years ago, from new areas of practice to changing roles in the hospital setting. Though their supervisors and other senior level practitioners can offer valuable guidance, they cannot provide the insights, perspective, and experiential wisdom that early to mid-career practitioners can provide.

To fill this gap, ASHP has created a unique new publication: Letters from Rising Pharmacy Stars: Advice on Creating and Advancing Your Career in a Changing Profession. Edited by Susan A. Cantrell, RPh, CAE, CEO of the Academy of Managed Care Pharmacy, and Sara J. White, RPh, MS, FASHP, Former Director of Pharmacy at Stanford University and Clinics, Letters from Rising Pharmacy Stars is a collection of compelling letters from 30 “up and comers” who have demonstrated significant achievement in their careers.

A companion to ASHP’s Letters to a Young Pharmacist: Sage Advice on Life and Career from Extraordinary Pharmacists, published in 2014 by the same authors, this collection forms an inspiring guide to the choices and challenges that young pharmacists are grappling with, written by practitioners who share similar generational interests and concerns.

Readers will find practical guidance and fresh ideas on a wide range of topics, including:

• Finding and landing the right opportunities
• Choosing roles and settings that best match personal interests
• Navigating life and career as a two-pharmacist couple
• Pursuing a career as a pharmacogenetics clinical scientist
• Dealing with the impact of significant life events like a serious auto accident
• Coordinating postgraduate year 1 and 2 (PGY-1 and 2) residencies
• And much more.

Their down-to-earth advice can help readers navigate the changes in pharmacy practice, develop a long-term career strategy, and find the right work/life balance – and also offers valuable insights to residency directors and others who mentor them.
