© 2015 Royal Pharmaceutical Society. Objectives The objective of this study was to develop and pilot a hospital self-assessment tool and prioritization system for hospitals to evaluate their pharmacy practice performance against the International Pharmaceutical Federation (FIP)'s Basel Statements. Methods To develop the self-assessment tool, we reviewed the Basel statements to identify characteristics that could be measured at the individual hospital level and finalized these based on feedback from five cognitive interviews. The survey instrument was pilot tested in four countries; two high-, one lower middle- and one low-income country. Participants were electronically sent the survey tool and enrolled through the snowball sampling method. Tiers were developed by investigators to assist hospitals in prioritizing the achievement of Basel Statement practices. Tiers were validated by the Hospital Section chairs of FIP through a card sorting exercise. Simple agreement and Cohen's kappa was used to characterize inter-rater reliability. Descriptive statistics were used to characterize the responses. Key findings Forty-four survey responses were collected from 36 hospitals in four countries. The survey response rate was 29% and took an average of 26 minutes to complete. The overall average agreement of constructs was 83%. The survey characterized how far a hospital was to achieving the Basel Statement practices with an average achievement rate of 57% (ranging from 30% to 90%). The survey highlighted medication safety challenges facing the pharmacy profession. The results produced a benchmarking report for each respondent. Conclusions The results support the validity and reliability of the survey tool. This comprehensive survey tool can be used by institutions to track their progress towards achieving the Basel Statement practices.

The objective of this study was to investigate if pharmacy closures changed the distance patients traveled to their pharmacies and in turn affected patient prescription drug use. Iowa Medicaid data was used. Sixteen pharmacies were randomly selected from all pharmacies that closed in 1994. Each of the closed pharmacies was matched by a comparable pharmacy that had not closed. Andersen and Newman's Health Behavior Model served as the theoretical framework in the study. T-tests and multiple regression were applied for data analysis. It was found that patients traveled longer distances to another pharmacy after the closing of their previous pharmacy when compared to patients at the matched pharmacy. The number of prescription claims was negatively correlated to the distance to each pharmacy. Therefore patients whose pharmacy had closed used less prescription drugs. Clinical outcomes need to be investigated for future research.
