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.

Brand Planning for the Pharmaceutical Industry

 Pharmacology  Comments Off on Brand Planning for the Pharmaceutical Industry
Jul 052018
 

Written by John Lidstone and Janice MacLennan, of Marketing Planning for the Pharmaceutical Industry became accepted as the bible for the industry. In this new companion book Janice MacLennan picks up two of the themes touched on in Marketing Planning – market segmentation and branding, and the inter-relationship between these two – and with this book makes them key topics for discussion. Brand Planning for the Pharmaceutical Industry begins by exploring what branding is and why it is of importance, particularly to the pharmaceutical sector. The book then goes on to show how branding can be integrated into the early stages of the commercialization process for new products, both in theory and in the ‘real’ world. The book provides a step-by-step guide to brand planning, using market segmentation as the starting point. The book is split into two parts, the first dealing comprehensively with brand planning for products yet to get to the market, with the second part applying the same process to products that are already on the market. Both parts are extremely pragmatic, full of pertinent examples and insights from the pharmaceutical industry, and are directly applicable to your own brand planning. Brand Planning for the Pharmaceutical Industry concludes by confronting the problems that organizations are likely to have in actually making brand planning an integral part of their work and presents strategies for dealing with them.

Supply Chain in the Pharmaceutical Industry: Strategic Influences and Supply Chain Responses

 Pharmacology  Comments Off on Supply Chain in the Pharmaceutical Industry: Strategic Influences and Supply Chain Responses
Jul 052018
 

The pharmaceutical and healthcare industry is hugely complex because it involves so many markets, products, processes and intermediaries. It is also heavily regulated, global, and used by everyone at some stage in their life. No wonder the supply chain for delivery of healthcare services is often fragmented and understood only in discrete sections. Changes in one area impact upon the others, and environmental factors such as pricing, regulatory change or actions by competitors impact the whole supply chain in ways that are not easily understood or managed. Accelerating technology, the commoditization of healthcare, increasing demands from ageing populations all influence the approach that suppliers of pharmaceutical products and services worldwide need to take if they are to design and manage an effective supply chain that will be capable of: exploiting their intellectual property in a sustainable way; providing safe and continuous provision of drugs or devices; and sustaining with resilience, yet still be flexible and cost efficient. Supply Chain in the Pharmaceutical Industry offers the basis for organizations to develop their own blueprint for managing the opportunities and threats to the pharmaceutical supply chain. Using examples from companies and markets across the world Rob Whewell offers a very vivid picture of the developing trends for pharmaceutical companies; the customers and markets they serve and points to some of the elements that underpin sustainable pharmaceutical strategies. The current global banking and financial crisis illustrates the important role played by regulation. The healthcare industry is similar in scope, and complexity, yet the implications of error are worse – life threatening. This review of key industry parameters will provide senior executives in the industry and policy makers in healthcare with a broad perspective of the issues and illustrates an understanding of the task at hand.
