Prescription drugs are expensive. New Ohio bill could bring relief | Health

For many Ohioans, prescription drugs are just too expensive, even with insurance. Co-pay assistance programs can offer some financial relief, but often patients end up paying all the freight anyway, since the costs covered by these programs are not factored into their deductible.

This means that even if they don’t pay the full cost of their prescriptions, they end up paying that cost on other medical care until they hit their deductible.

A bill at the Ohio House aims to change that.

Bill HB 135 would allow patients to count co-pay assistance programs toward their deductible, the amount a person must pay out of pocket before insurance begins to pay. Proponents say it would allow patients to better afford care and alleviate some real hardships some people face when they get sick and can’t afford their medication.

“Health care in general is very expensive,” said Leo Almeida, director of government relations for the American Cancer Society, which advocates for legislative change.

And co-pay assistance programs, which are supposed to help alleviate some of that cost, aren’t always helpful.

“Let’s say you take a prescription and your out-of-pocket payment for that prescription is $500. You have this co-payment assistance. The pharmacy applies the $500, so you get that drug for free that month,” he said. “But your insurance company doesn’t apply that $500 to your annual deductible. So it’s a benefit over the counter at the pharmacy, but it’s not a long-term benefit because you’re still paying your same deductible through your insurance. So you basically just pay it down the road.”

Julie Turner from Tipp City, Ohio is a cancer survivor. After her chemotherapy and radiation treatments, she lost her bone density, she said.

She is now taking medication to treat this side effect, but the medication is very expensive, so she applied for and received co-payment assistance through her medication manufacturer.

But the copay assistance program didn’t help her at all, she says.

“The help I was so excited about — being a retired person on a fixed income — was going to help me, but in essence it was no help at all,” Turner said. “Because later in the year, I was paying back the $1,500 of my maximum outlay.

This reality can be particularly costly for people with chronic conditions. According to an article in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), the average spending by people with diabetes in 2018 was over $2,000. For about 8% of people, personal expenses amount to more than $5,000.

Insulin – a life-saving drug for people with diabetes – accounts for 18% of all out-of-pocket expenses.

The PAN Foundation – which provides co-payment assistance – said it has helped people with rheumatoid arthritis, people who need medication to improve their mental health and people with all types of cancers.

The situation for some may be so dire that the organization said it has encountered people considering taking out a second mortgage on their home to pay for medication or skipping medication before finding co-payment assistance. Nearly 60% of Americans have delayed or gone without essential medical care due to high costs, and Medicare patients paid an average of $8,000 per person for drugs in 2019, according to the foundation.

A recent survey found that 51% of cancer patients and survivors had taken on debt to cover the cost of their cancer care, Almeida said.

“So if you think about that 51%, there are people deciding between putting food on the table for their family or paying for their prescription,” he said.

HB 135 would help anyone whose medications are so expensive they need a co-payment assistance program, Almeida said. But advocates say they fear the bill will be stalled.

In March, state lawmakers in the House voted unanimously to pass the bill, meaning it has bipartisan support. Since then, he has served on the Senate Health Committee.

Medicare patients may soon pay less for prescription drugs – FOX13 News Memphis

WATCH: Bipartisan agreement reached on proposal to allow Medicare to negotiate drug prices WATCH: Bipartisan agreement reached on proposal to allow Medicare to negotiate drug prices

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — At 84, Marcia Dunlap depends on Medicare and private insurance to get the medications she needs.

“I have type 1 diabetes and getting insulin is very expensive,” she told FOX13 after picking up her prescription at a Midtown Walgreens.

The long-time diabetic said the price of the insulin she needed to survive had skyrocketed.

According to the Health Policy Institute, nearly two-thirds of Americans rely on prescription drugs to survive. Additionally, Americans are spending ten times more on prescription drugs than they did 30 years ago, according to the Congressional Budget Office.

On Wednesday night, Democrats reached a deal with U.S. Senate Republicans that could lower prescription drug prices. The proposal will allow Medicare to negotiate prescription prices with drug companies.

“When it comes to the cost of living and the expenses families face, many of these families had to choose between their money or their lives,” said U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Chicago). “(They need) to buy drugs that doctors have told them are essential for their survival.”

Republicans believed the proposal would only interfere with a free market.

“Democrats in Washington are working right now to find ways to put more bureaucracy between American patients and the treatments that are allowed to them,” argued Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Kentucky).

“Senator Hagerty does not believe in giving government more control over drugs and the personal medical decisions of Americans and crushing vital pharmaceutical innovation in the process,” a spokeswoman for U.S. Senator Bill Hagerty wrote. (R-Tennessee). “This is yet another power grab by the Democrats in Washington that is mistakenly viewed as beneficial to the American people.”

However, Dunlap has applauded the legislation, which she hopes will make her insulin cheaper.

“Ten years ago, insulin was affordable,” Dunlap said. “About – maybe five years ago, it became incredibly unaffordable.”

Boots becomes the first pharmacy to provide drone delivery of prescription drugs

Boots has become the first community pharmacy in the UK to drone prescription-only medicines. The company revealed today that it had carried out a test flight which carried the drugs from the British Army’s Baker Barracks on Thorney Island, near Portsmouth, to St Mary’s Hospital on the Isle of Wight.

Working with medical drone start-up Apian, Boots secured permission from the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) to fly the drones in a separate airspace between the mainland and the island.

Why does Boots use drones for prescription drug delivery?

Boots says he is assessing the potential wider use of drones for the delivery of prescription drugs, joining the Isle of Wight NHS Trust, which is testing the use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) to take delivery of medicines. Portsmouth chemotherapy treatments. The pilot, which was announced on the NHS’ 74e anniversary, also involves Apian as a private partner.

Boots CIO Rich Corbridge said today that drones have huge potential in the delivery of medicines and the company is delighted to be the first pharmacy in the UK to transport them in this way. He also explained that the Isle of Wight was a ‘smart place to start a drone trial’ because of the obvious value of delivering medicine to remote locations.

The CIO goes on to say that Boots is studying the time it can save by using drones in its supply chain as well as economic efficiencies: “We want to prepare now for the wider use of this technology in the future.”

The Boots trial uses rotary-wing drones. These are particularly useful for landing in areas where space is limited, says Dr Reza Mohammadkhani, assistant professor at the University of Sussex’s School of Engineering and Computer Science. “Rotary-wing drones are more popular because they can take off and land vertically – no launcher or runway needed,” he says. “They are best suited for more precise handling applications.”

However, says Dr. Mohammadkhani, these types of drones “require more mechanical and electronic complexity, leading to more complicated maintenance, decreased uptime and increased cost.”

Remote islands using state-of-the-art technology for reliability and connectivity

Remote areas are unsurprisingly popular when it comes to testing the potential of drones. The NHS pilot project on the Isle of Wight was launched because the island’s hospital trust believes it can be more effective with treatments, which have a short shelf life, and reduce delivery times of four hours to 30 minutes, while saving fuel. Each drone delivery replaces at least two car trips and one hovercraft or ferry trip per delivery.

Royal Mail is also testing drone technology for deliveries to the Shetland Islands, Orkney Islands, Isles of Scilly and Isle of Mull. He said the use of drones increases delivery reliability, especially in foggy conditions, while providing additional connectivity for remote communities.

Research has found that drones also emit less carbon than conventional air cargo and other traditional forms of transport such as cars and ferries.

Drones are not a ‘one-size-fits-all approach’

The NHS and Royal Mail are just two examples of businesses using drones for delivery, but some fear the companies are taking a tech-driven approach to solving a business problem.

According to McKinsey, over the past three years, there have been more than 660,000 commercial drone deliveries to customers — not including test flights. He also estimates that more than 2,000 drone deliveries took place every day in 2022, but said the rate of growth is accelerating every week.

“We expect there will be nearly 1.5 million deliveries in 2022 as a whole, compared to just under half a million in 2021,” Mckinsey said in a blog post.

However, as the drone economy looks set to take off, McKinsey warns that there will be three determining factors in future adoption: how drones are regulated; whether the public accepts them; and the cost of delivery by drone.

Seb Robert, CEO and founder of Gophr, says drones are unlikely to be a “silver bullet” for deliveries in hard-to-reach areas. “There are some amazing examples of drone delivery working well and providing a vital service – medical deliveries in the Australian bush for example,” he says. “The Isle of Wight trial location makes perfect sense; hard-to-reach areas are where drones come into their own.

However, he fears that those attracted to the benefits of drones will use the technology in places where it is not suitable, such as in urban areas: experienced pilot to avoid unexpected obstacles,” adds Robert. “It’s not a one-size-fits-all approach.”

Medical supplies

When is stocking up on medical supplies worth it?

The US supply chain has shown major vulnerabilities during the pandemic. Long reliant on a just-in-time (JIT) approach to stockpiling, the industry began to feel the pinch when demand exceeded availability. The result has been major shortages, inventory and a ripple effect that many supply chain experts have been predicting for years. To make matters worse, medical supplies were at the center of massive shortages, leading to limited availability of personal protective equipment (PPE) and other essential items for frontline healthcare workers.

It’s easy to look back and say what should have been done. But companies must prepare for the future, by addressing systemic challenges. Now is the time to adopt strategies that set health facilities up for success, whether there is a surplus or a shortage of essential medical supplies.

As COVID-19 spread around the world, the medical supply chain began to scramble. It quickly became apparent that the JIT delivery model that many hospitals, especially smaller rural facilities, had adopted could not withstand high demand during a catastrophic pandemic. Stories of frontline workers reusing PPE supplies or even making their own have captured national attention and led to a wake-up call throughout the supply chain.

So how did this happen? Along with hospitals not having a stockpile of supplies to fall back on, other supply chain factors were also fueling the problem. Manufacturers, distributors, and group purchasing organizations (GPOs) relied on a single source for supplies and materials, and when those vendors were forced to close, it resulted in shortages down the line. The lack of supplier diversity has wreaked havoc within the industry, forcing many to rethink the partners they rely on and the strategies they use to stock essential supplies.

Unfortunately, there’s no way to tell when or where the next global crisis will occur, but if 2020 has taught us anything, it’s that a crisis can strike when you least expect it. As supply chain industry leaders, we must prepare and implement the strategic lessons of the past to conquer the future.

Storing medical supplies presents a variety of challenges, but there are a few instances when it makes sense for hospitals to have excess stock on hand. Just as consumers stock up on paper towels, toilet paper, and non-perishable food, hospitals can maintain a repository of in-demand supplies with extended expiration dates and fewer complex storage requirements. This includes masks, gloves and gowns which are always in demand and do not require refrigeration to stock. Additionally, PPE protects frontline workers and, as we’ve seen with COVID-19, keeping them healthy during a pandemic is crucial to fighting a silent killer like a highly contagious virus.

Beyond everyday essentials like PPE, it’s difficult for hospitals to stockpile medical supplies. This is largely because it is impossible to predict which products will be in short supply. Still, there are tactics that can be implemented to help hospitals be better prepared without having to stockpile.

The best way to prepare for future global disasters is to ask manufacturers, distributors and GPOs how they are preparing for the next shortage. Their responses should center on diversifying sources of supply to overcome potential shortages, as well as adopting proactive initiatives to supplement products when they are or will be in high demand.

If we’ve learned anything from recent supply chain shortages, it’s that suppliers shouldn’t depend on a single source for goods. Rather, they should have multiple options for sourcing materials and supplies to ensure a steady flow through the supply chain.

Throughout the ups and downs of the past two years, the US supply chain has proven its resilience by pivoting and innovating to create new partnerships and reinvent existing ones. From sourcing to manufacturing to transporting supplies, there are operational and economic efficiencies to be gained when finding the right supply chain partners.

Senator Cortez Masto says Nevada’s new prescription drug ad is fake

As elected officials and would-be politicians campaign, how do Nevada voters know what’s factual and what’s campaign?

Senator Catherine Cortez Masto called out Big Pharma today for spreading misinformation about its stance on prescription drug prices.

The ad currently airing in Nevada claims lawmakers are considering “cutting millions of dollars” that could help Nevadans with prescription drug costs.

On Tuesday in the Senate, Cortez Masto told his colleagues that the ad was patently false. And she said that although it’s said to be produced by the American Prosperity Alliance, it’s unclear who is actually funding it, but she has her suspicions.

“We don’t know who actually funded this ad, and the organization that wrote the check doesn’t have to disclose that information, and therefore no one can be held responsible. And that’s part of the problem,” he said. she declared. “And that’s why I called for accountability and transparency and who is funding these ads. is “Big Pharmacy.”

Cortez Masto said she wants her colleagues and Nevada voters to know the opposite is true with lawmakers like her working to lower prescription drug prices by capping out-of-pocket costs and allowing the government to directly negotiate prescription drug prices.

Generic drugs

DTI will push investments in the manufacture of generic drugs


The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) is committed to making more generic medicines available on the market in line with its priority of promoting life sciences and health.

Responding to President Ferdinand Marcos Jr.’s call in his first State of the Nation (SONA) address on Monday for more accessible and cheaper drugs, DTI Secretary Alfredo Pascual at the post-SONA economic briefing , said yesterday that the agency would encourage the entry of more generic drugs in two ways.

One is through multinational companies whose drugs will be formulated and manufactured locally under subcontracting agreements with local companies.

The second way is to encourage the local pharmaceutical industry to launch into the production of generics.

In a statement, Johannes Bernabe, OCI chairman of the Philippine Competition Commission (PCC), said the agency has been advocating since its inception for measures that will remove barriers to entry and viability for manufacturers of generic drugs in the country.

Bernabe said the production of unbranded generic drugs in the country lags behind even among other developing countries.

The Commission has also been constantly monitoring and reviewing possible anti-competitive situations, including cartels, that may exist in the different segments of the pharmaceuticals supply chain, Bernabe said.

“The Philippines is known to have one of the highest drug costs in Asia,” Bernabe said.

Bernabe expressed the CCP’s commitment to continue with even more determination the investigation of the pharmaceutical sector, in addition to its current efforts in this priority sector and to uphold its mandate to crack down on cartels and abusive behavior in different industries. , including this sector.

High heat can impact the effectiveness of prescription medications and cause side effects | Local News

The heat wave continues across the country, in the United States and locally. And with temperatures in the region consistently staying in the 80s to 90s, experts warn of more than just heatstroke and sunburn.






Scott room


Scott Hall, senior director of clinical practice for pharmacy in the Southwest Region of the Mayo Clinic Health System, says heat can impact medication effectiveness. The chemicals they contain can be degraded when stored at very high or even very cold temperatures.

“We really need to make sure that these drugs retain their strength, potency, and effectiveness regardless of the condition they’re trying to treat,” Hall says. “The temperature can really impact all the medications people take.”

Insulin is a drug that can be particularly heat-sensitive, Hall says, as can nitroglycerin tablets and epinephrine injectors.

To maintain medication effectiveness, medications should not be stored in a vehicle, bathroom, or near stoves and ovens, where moisture, steam, and heat from cooking and baking can have a negative effect on the pills. Especially for those who do not have air conditioning in their homes, medicines should be kept in a cool, dry place. Medicines should also be kept in their original packaging.

“Whether it’s the bottle the medicine originally came in or the bottle the pharmacist put it in at the pharmacy, keeping it in those bottles where they can stay sealed will really help prevent any side effects. heat negative,” Hall said. said.

Medications should not, Hall says, be stored in the refrigerator unless directed by a pharmacist or doctor.

In addition to affecting medications, heat can also impact the patient’s tolerance to medications and have adverse effects. Certain medications, especially those classified as diuretics, such as blood pressure medications, can make patients more susceptible to dehydration.

“Their intended effect is to increase urination and, through this, help lower blood pressure,” says Hall. “But this increased urination can lead to dehydration.”

Beta-blockers and antihistamines, Hall adds, “can inhibit the body’s ability to sweat and therefore make patients more susceptible to the effects of heat.” And some psychiatric drugs can interfere with body temperature regulation.

“I would say the basic common practice is that if you’re on these types of medications, limit the amount of time you’re outside,” advises Hall. Those who have to stay outdoors for a long time should stay in the shade as much as possible and drink enough water.

Says Hall, “Make sure you’re proactively taking care of yourself so you don’t end up in a tough spot.”

Those who have questions about storing their medications, or if they have been affected by any heat-related side effects, should talk to their pharmacist.

The cost of prescription drugs is the topic of today’s editorial board meeting streamed live on Facebook

Prescription drug prices in the United States are too high. And too many people find themselves unable to pay for their medications and keep food on the table. That’s according to the Pennsylvania Health Access Network (PHAN), which is meeting with PennLive’s editorial board at 2 p.m. Thursday, July 21, in an event that will be streamed live on Pennlive’s Facebook page.

The Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) says Americans spend more on prescription drugs than anyone else in the world. And the prices in this country of life-saving drugs keep rising. With inflation impacting almost every aspect of American life, PHAN members argue that something needs to be done to help the elderly and others who depend on lifesaving drugs but are increasingly struggling. to pay for them.

PHAN members will discuss what they see as the reasons for the high drug prices in this country and what they have proposed to do to reduce them.

PHAN participants will include Executive Director Antoinette Kraus; policy analyst Jennifer Wolff; Policy Director Patrick Keenan; Director of Communications Shana Jalbert and William Leachman, a consumer concerned about the high cost of prescription drugs in the United States.

PHAN will focus specifically on what can be done in Pennsylvania to support President Joe Biden’s administration’s efforts to reduce the cost of prescription drugs.

Bring your respectful comments and questions to our discussion today on the cost of prescription drugs in America.

John Williamson: Driving while taking prescription drugs

Roadside drug testing will become another tool for police to tackle impaired driving alongside breath testing. Photo/NZME

OPINION

Six weeks ago I had a knee replacement. The operation had been planned 16 months earlier, but the surgeon had health problems and only now has he returned to work.

Both knees are done now and I look forward to a pain free future. The first game of bowls is this week, so things are going well.

I was sent home with a bag of medicine. Antibiotics just in case of infection, anti-inflammatories as well, plus three different painkillers depending on the levels of pain expected at different stages.

They say the pain of knee replacement surgery is worse than that of childbirth, but it’s hard to imagine.

The pain is not excruciating, but with increased activity it persists for some time. However, with the increase in activity you feel more capable and I was physically able to drive.

What held me back though was trying to figure out what level of pain relief makes you potentially impaired while driving, and it’s very hard to find out.

Driving under the influence of drugs has long been a difficult problem to solve, especially when the drugs involved are prescribed by a doctor and dispensed by a pharmacist without a clear warning.

In my case, the most potent drugs had warnings that “this drug may make you drowsy and make it dangerous to drive or use machinery – limit your alcohol intake”.

It is a precautionary signal that does not make driving illegal. There’s a clear message that drinking alcohol while taking prescription drugs just isn’t smart.

From April next year, police will have the authority and tools to be able to randomly road test via a saliva sample for the presence of the 25 most common drugs that could be in the drug system. a driver.

The bulk of them will be prescription drugs. You would like to think that the real target of these tests are illegal and recreational drugs such as cannabis, MDMA (ecstasy) and methamphetamine. These are well-known problematic drugs, especially when mixed with alcohol.

The problem with random road tests for these problematic drugs is that they are illegal, and the law as it stands now confirms that any confirmed presence of these drugs in a person’s system while driving is an automatic condemnation.

Research is sparse on what level of attendance makes the driver intoxicated, but the law says it doesn’t matter – any level is illegal.

Research is conclusive, however, that the presence of alcohol in combination with these drugs multiplies the level of impairment. This makes the conviction appropriate, even though the driver’s blood alcohol level may be below the legal limit.

Zero tolerance for illicit drugs sends a clear signal that these drugs and driving are incompatible.

But what about the driver who took appropriately prescribed medication, with no alcohol present, but no special knowledge of his inebriated state, other than a strongly qualified label on his medication?

Here we have a vast lack of knowledge, about which the police will have to have some discretion during road tests.

There’s no doubt that certain medications prescribed at certain levels can cause driving problems, and they can be scary.

In fact, one of the biggest public health issues in the United States is the epidemic of accidental opioid-related deaths. People taking prescribed drugs, ostensibly for pain but in fact to get high, have caused more than 600,000 premature deaths over the past 20 years from overdoses.

A 2013 report titled “The Wolff Report on Driving Under the Influence of Drugs” attempted to categorize the range of painkillers, antidepressants and sedatives according to power level and level of driving impairment. .

This is an attempt to give guidance to the authorities on the legal limits. Fentanyl, by the way, is considered 80 times more potent than morphine, and its prescription requires great caution.

Random roadside drug testing is an additional tool in the toolbox to make our roads safer.

Common sense as well as better education and knowledge of prescription drugs, especially mixed with alcohol, are also crucial parts of this mix.

White House hits back at prescription drugs, accuses McConnell of supporting Big Pharma ‘welfare’

NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

EXCLUSIVE: The White House is hitting back at Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s criticism of the Democrats’ spending bill — particularly on prescription drugs — accusing him of supporting ‘big social welfare’. pharmaceutical companies,” while saying President Biden is committed to middle-class families and reducing the deficit.

The White House comments came after McConnell, R-Ky., spoke in the Senate on Monday, criticizing the Democrats’ reconciliation plan that would allow Medicare to regulate prescription drug prices.

McConnell said the Biden administration and congressional Democrats “want to impose socialist price controls between America’s innovators and new cures for debilitating diseases.”

In response, White House Deputy Press Secretary Andrew Bates told Fox News on Tuesday that McConnell was “resorting to talking points that Big Pharma is spending millions on airwaves in opposition to the anti- President’s inflation, which would reduce the deficit and finally allow Medicare to negotiate down the exorbitant prescription drug costs that have driven so many American families out of business.”

SENATE READY FOR VOTE ON SEMICONDUCTOR BILL AFTER MANCHIN SHRINKS DEMS RECONCILIATION PACKAGE AGAIN

“The American people are forced to pay two to three times what citizens of other countries do for these drugs, and for too long Medicare has been barred by law from using their leverage to save consumers money and of taxpayers – the welfare of big pharma that the industry has lobbied and Senator McConnell has supported for nearly two decades,” Bates said.

Bates added, “When it comes to choosing between the bottom line of middle-class families or special interests driving up hard-working prices to boost record profits, the president knows exactly where he stands.”

As for prescription drugs in the reconciliation package, Democrats seek to give Medicare the power to negotiate a better deal on some of the most expensive drugs. Currently, Medicare does not have the right to negotiate drug prices.

The legislation would also require rebates from pharmaceutical companies that raise prices faster than inflation and impose caps on recipients of $2,000 per year. One official said the provision would give Americans “the financial security of knowing their pharmacy fees are capped.”

Democrats also say the legislation would help reduce the deficit.

But McConnell and Republicans warn that the bill is waging a “war” on America’s medical innovation sector.

“Democrats in Washington are working right now to find ways to put more bureaucracy between American patients and the treatments they rely on,” McConnell said in his speech on the floor Monday. “They want to put socialist price controls between American innovators and new cures for debilitating diseases.”

McConnell warned that with “one-party democratic control of government, they could get away with it.”

McConnell also pointed out that the provisions would have “extremely, extremely negative consequences” for the country.

“The American people know that government can’t magically cut costs by passing laws saying things should cost less,” McConnell said, warning that “the bill will go to the American people who are living with real health issues. health”.

“The price of bigger government will be fewer lifesaving cures, less innovation in the future,” McConnell added, saying the legislation would ultimately shrink the pipeline of new therapies for patients with chronic conditions.

BIDEN SAYS HE WILL TAKE EXECUTIVE ACTION TO ADDRESS CLIMATE CHANGE IF CONGRESS DOESN’T ACT

“Prescription drugs with socialism would have devastating and aggravating effects,” he said.

Meanwhile, Democrats hoped pass a scan packet to brag about midterm, but in light of recent inflation numbers, Sen. Joe Manchin, DW.Va., last week officially rejected efforts to raise taxes or pass energy and climate policies in the reconciliation package.

Manchin, instead, said he would only support a bill that includes a provision to reduce prescription drug prices and a two-year extension of Affordable Care Act grants.

That leaves Democrats, in the Senate 50-50, with only prescription drug provisions and the expansion of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) in their legislation.

Democrats hope to pass the bill using the Senate Reconciliation Process to circumvent the filibuster threshold of 60 votes. This will give them a much-needed victory to bring to voters before members head home to campaign in August ahead of November’s midterm elections, even if it’s a far cry from the $3 trillion-plus bill. dollars that they originally wanted to pass last year.

Syracuse Hospital will provide free prescription drugs to uninsured residents of Onondaga County

Syracuse, NY – Uninsured Onondaga County residents with limited income will be able to get free insulin and other prescription medications starting July 24 at the Upstate Community Hospital Outpatient Pharmacy at 5000 West Seneca Turnpike.

Upstate will get the drugs from the Dispensary of Hope, a national nonprofit drug distributor that collects billions of doses of excess drugs that would otherwise be destroyed and donates them to those in need.

To be eligible, patients must be uninsured and have an income at or below 300% of the federal poverty level. For a single person, 300% of the federal poverty level means an annual income of $40,770.

Eligible patients must also have a prescription to obtain the drugs.

Darryl Geddes, a spokesperson for Upstate, said the program would be a great option for people who don’t qualify for Medicaid, the government’s health insurance program for low-income and disabled people. Medicaid serves patients at or below 133% of the federal poverty level.

About 5% of Onondaga County residents under age 65 are uninsured, according to U.S. Census data.

Medications available will include drugs to treat high blood pressure, high cholesterol, stomach ulcers, diabetes and more.

One of the medications available will be insulin, a diabetes medication that can cost up to $300 per vial.

Upstate said in an announcement that its hospital and clinics often see patients who cannot afford medication.

Dispensary of Hope was started in Nashville, Tennessee in 2003 by a doctor who worked with the local medical community to donate unused drug samples to free clinics and pharmacies. It now receives donated drugs directly from manufacturers and distributors and distributes them to more than 200 sites nationwide.

Upstate will become the state’s first Dispensary of Hope site outside of New York, which has five sites.

Patients who wish to participate should send their prescriptions to the pharmacy, located across from Upstate Community Hospital.

More information about the program can be obtained by emailing Upstate at [email protected]

US Treasury says agricultural and medical products not part of Russian sanctions

The US Treasury Department clarified on Thursday that it had not imposed any sanctions on the production, manufacture, sale or transport of agricultural products (including fertilizers), agricultural equipment or drugs linked to Russia.

In a fact sheet released by the department, he said the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) issued a Broad General License (GL) to authorize certain transactions related to agricultural commodities, farm equipment, drugs and medical devices.

“The United States strongly supports United Nations efforts to bring Ukrainian and Russian grain to world markets and to reduce the impact of Russia’s unprovoked war against Ukraine on world food supplies and prices. … The agricultural and medical trade is not the target of sanctions imposed by the United States on Russia for its atrocities in Ukraine.”

The fact sheet pointed out that the provision of insurance or reinsurance for the transport of agricultural products was also not prohibited.

“The United States has imposed a ban on the importation into the United States of fish, seafood and their preparations originating in the Russian Federation. This ban does not limit the importation of fish, seafood and of their preparations originating in the Russian Federation from Russia to countries other than the United States,” he added.

He also said that US financial institutions could conduct transactions related to the items mentioned, adding that the state-owned Russian Agricultural Bank was not on OFAC’s Specially Designated Nationals list, but that transactions were subject to certain debt and equity restrictions.

The fact sheet reflected US policy, which exempts humanitarian, medical and agricultural products from sanctions, with certain restrictions.

The United States issued a memo in February saying its sanctions regime does not prohibit the import or export of agricultural products, drugs and medical devices to Afghanistan, the Wall Street Journal reported.

Will allowing Medicare to negotiate prescription drug prices lead to cost savings?

Health care costs are notoriously high in the United States, and the price of prescription drugs is a major reason for this. Nationally, Medicare accounts for about one-third of prescription drug spending. To combat rising costs for this component of the program, legislation being drafted in Congress includes a price negotiation mechanism that could help reduce Medicare spending if enacted.

Medicare spending on prescription drugs has increased dramatically over the past 20 years

TWEET THIS

Spending on prescription drugs is higher in the United States than in other countries

The United States spends nearly three times the average of other developed countries per capita on health care, which is largely due to high drug costs. A 2021 study by the RAND Corporation, a nonprofit research organization, found that the cost of brand-name drugs in the United States was more than triple the cost of those same drugs in other developed countries. One reason is that there are loopholes that allow pharmaceutical companies to extend or create new patents in the United States, many of which are not actually new drugs. These patents lessen competition, limit the production of generic versions and thus allow companies to charge higher prices here compared to other countries. There are a number of other factors that contribute to other countries paying different prices for prescription drugs, but this largely comes down to the lack of state drug price regulation or negotiation. -United.

The United States pays more for prescription drugs than other OECD countries


How would Medicare negotiate prices?

Currently, Medicare does not have the right to negotiate prescription drug prices with manufacturers, forcing the government to pay relatively higher prices for drugs. Medicare Part D is an optional segment of the program that helps beneficiaries pay for prescription drugs. If the provisions being discussed to negotiate prices are signed into law, the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) would be authorized to negotiate prices for up to 10 drugs in 2025 and 20 drugs in 2028 and beyond.

The high costs are concentrated on a relatively small number of drugs; the 100 most expensive drugs account for nearly 50% of all Part D expenditures. The goal of price negotiation is to achieve a “maximum fair price” that more similarly matches the average international market price , which represents the average price in six countries: Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Japan and the United Kingdom. The agreed price would then be made available to insurers and organizations that sponsor Medicare Part D plans as well as commercial payers in the group and individual markets. If pharmaceutical companies do not comply with the negotiation process, a maximum excise tax of 95% would be invoked.

Would Negotiating Drug Prices Make a Difference for Medicare Beneficiaries?

Overall, allowing HHS to negotiate drug prices would reduce costs for both the federal government and consumers. A recent Congressional Budget Office (CBO) estimate of a similar plan to tackle drug prices showed savings of nearly $300 billion over the next decade.

The concept is already in practice in other federal government agencies that provide health services. The Veterans Health Administration, the Department of Defense, and Medicaid all have the power to negotiate drug prices, and they pay less than Medicare, on average, for top-selling brand name drugs. With prescription drug spending on the rise — which cost Medicare $116 billion in 2021 from $2 billion in 2000 — price negotiation would be a useful tool to reduce costs. In a recent report, the Center for American Progress wrote that “lowering drug prices through negotiation, inflationary discounts, and insulin and cost-sharing caps would allow people – especially those with chronic diseases and disabilities – to access the treatment they need”.

Conclusion

The price of prescription drugs in the United States is high and rising, with costly consequences for both consumers and the federal balance sheet. Allowing Medicare to negotiate drug prices is a promising policy lawmakers could consider to reduce health care spending, lower costs for consumers, and put our country on a stronger and more sustainable fiscal path.

Authorities seize $20 million worth of fentanyl disguised as prescription drugs from notorious cartel

The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) on July 5 seized approximately $20 million worth of fentanyl-containing pills believed to be linked to Mexico’s Sinaloa drug cartel, according to a DEA press release.

The seizure, carried out by the DEA’s Los Angeles Field Division High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA) Group 48, seized 1 million pills containing fentanyl, according to the news release. It was the largest fentanyl pill bust ever by the DEA in California. (RELATED: DEA Warns Law Enforcement to Prepare for Increase in Fentanyl ‘Massive Overdose Events’)

“These fake pills are designed to resemble real prescription pills down to size, shape, color and stamping,” the DEA said in its press release. “These fake pills usually replicate real prescription opioid medications.”

Prior to the seizure, DEA agents found drug couriers and hideout managers transporting drugs to other dealers in the area, according to the news release.

“Misleading marketing coupled with ease of access makes these seemingly harmless little pills a significant threat to the health and safety of all of our communities. A staggering number of teenagers and young adults are unaware that they are ingesting fentanyl in these fake pills and being poisoned,” DEA Special Agent in Charge Bill Bodner said in a statement Thursday.

Los Angeles is a hub for trafficking illegal drugs across the US-Mexico border due to its many international airports, freeways, and bus and train routes, according to the DEA. The DEA office in Los Angeles saw a 64% increase in fentanyl pills seized in the first four months of 2022, compared to the previous year.

The DEA claims that 40% of fentanyl-containing pills have a lethal dose, which is around 2 milligrams. Fentanyl is largely responsible for the nearly 108,000 drug overdose deaths in the United States in 2021.

The DEA declined further comment to the Daily Caller News Foundation.

Drones ready to deliver medical products to Washington State in 2024

The drones will begin carrying medical supplies to addresses in Tacoma, Wash., starting in 2024, two companies behind the project announced Thursday. It’s the latest example of using unmanned aircraft to move critical cargo faster than conventional transportation.

Startup Zipline drone maker and healthcare provider MultiCare said the service would transport lab samples, medications and test kits among local Multicare facilities, the companies told CNET exclusively. MultiCare expects the partnership to mean that its healthcare providers, with their own on-demand delivery system, will be able to improve the care patients receive.

Project Tacoma still requires regulatory approval for flight operations details, including whether the Zipline drones will fly autonomously, as they do in the company’s other operations.

“Ensuring our providers have what they need, when they need it, is a critical part of providing affordable and accessible care to patients,” said Florence Chang, president of MultiCare, in a statement.

Project Tacoma marks the latest use of drones to speed up deliveries, which can be slowed by increasingly congested roads. The World Economic Forum expects the use of delivery trucks will increase by 78% by 2030 without alternative shipping approaches, adding 11 minutes to average travel times.

Drones are already in limited operation in the United States. Wing, operated by Alphabet, Google’s parent company, has begun deliveries in the Dallas-Fort Worth area of ​​Texas. In parts of North Carolina, Flytrex drones deliver food from Just Wings, Chili’s Grill & Bar and Maggiano’s Little Italy to homes. Amazon Prime Air plans to test drone deliveries south of Sacramento, California.

Based south of San Francisco Zipline has made nearly 345,000 deliveries to date, primarily with nationwide programs in Rwanda and Ghana, and delivers an average of one package every two minutes. It began an expansion into the United States last year, shipping packages for retail giant Walmart in Pea Ridge, Arkansas. In June, it began delivering medical supplies from a distribution center in Kannapolis, North Carolina, for Novant Health, Magellan Rx Management and Cardinal Health.

In June, Zipline cleared a regulatory hurdle in the United States by winning certification from the Federal Aviation Administration that allows flights up to 26 miles.

State asks for help to quickly report fake prescription drugs

Director DPS Bayens.

The state is stepping up public awareness efforts in response to an influx of fake prescription drugs containing fentanyl that have appeared in the state.

Public Safety Commissioner Steven Bayens says the pills are produced primarily in Mexico.
“The pill presses used by cartels can create near-perfect reproductions of common prescription drugs. As a result, even our own agents are now trained to treat every prescription pill they encounter as if it contains fentanyl,” says Bayens.

Bayens says the procedures for mixing what goes into the pills aren’t as sophisticated as the production process – and that leads to deadly pills. “The Drug Enforcement Administration has discovered that four out of ten counterfeit pills submitted to their lab contain a lethal dose,” he says. “If we apply this data point to Iowa, over 28,000 lethal doses of fentanyl were seized. In the first six months only.

Bayens says the amount of fentanyl that is lethal can fit on a pencil lead. Too much fentanyl creates what is called a “hot batch”. He says you can help by reporting the discovery of the fake pills.

“The faster we can identify that a hot batch has made its way into a community. The sooner we can alert health officials, educate the public and begin enforcement actions aimed at stopping its deadly effects,” according to Bayens. Every tip that hits the hotline and is submitted to us via an anonymous email is distributed to one of our 17 field offices across the state.

He says the pills are dangerous to handle and you shouldn’t try to get rid of them yourself. Bayens says it’s also important for the lab to examine the pills to try to determine their composition. Anyone who finds a counterfeit pill is encouraged to call the Iowa Division of Narcotics Enforcement’s Anonymous Hotline at (800) 532-0052 or [email protected] and in case of emergency, dial 911.

Bayens says the most common pills are designed to look like the powerful painkiller oxycontin.
“These are smaller blue pills marked M 30. And these are actually the pharmaceutical brands of oxycontin. And so the vast majority of what we’re seeing right now and the vast majority of seizures appear to be oxycontin. They are stamped in blue about the same size and are marked M 30,” he says.

Gov. Kim Reynolds said the state is considering targeting young people to try to educate them more on the issue. “The Iowa Department of Health and Human Services will roll out an expansion of its multimedia public health campaign targeting tweens to young adults, which currently focuses on suicide prevention to include new messages about the dangers of fentanyl. says Reynolds.

The focus on fentanyl comes after overdose deaths in Cass and Shelby counties uncovered a fentanyl distribution ring in western Iowa and eastern Nebraska.

For the medical supplies industry, the supply chain is back to business as usual

The medical supplies industry is returning to the supply chain strategies it used before COVID-19, despite current severe challenges, according to an expert in the field.

“The industry in general is back to exactly where it was before COVID,” says Michael Einhorn, president and CEO of Dealmed, a large independent distributor of medical supplies in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and Pennsylvania. “There have been very few industry-wide changes. Much has been said about supplier diversity, nearshoring and friend-shoring. But the thing is, outside of those Band Aid supply fixes, there really hasn’t been much change in the healthcare industry. Everything is status quo. »

Einhorn has been a supporter of changes in supply chain management in the healthcare industry for years, and he sees the need as more pressing than ever.

“This industry still faces the greatest number of supply issues,” he said.

Fixes are hard to find though. Einhorn points to proposed legislation in Washington, DC, that would introduce a fast-track customs system where the appropriate government agencies would authorize the clearance of medical supplies before imports such as toys for faster entry. This, he says, is actually a sign that not much is changing in terms of sourcing and execution.

“If you think about it, a lot of products have to be made in China, or somewhere else overseas, so that doesn’t solve the proximity problem. A Fast Pass simply makes it easier for products to come from other countries. It is very revealing that it is as if nothing had happened. We just make it easy. It seems to me that the industry is operating with a just-in-time model, just like it was before COVID.

It’s not easy or quick to move production out of China, with a few exceptions. According to industry market research firm IBISWorld, there were 971 medical device manufacturing companies in the United States in January 2022, an increase of 1.9% from 2021.

He says much of the resistance to change is driven by the complications of manufacturing in the United States, including regulatory restrictions. Sometimes it’s legitimately easier to make items overseas, like nitrile gloves, because the raw material for them comes from Southeast Asia.

Overall, though, Einhorn says there aren’t currently compelling enough reasons for people to manufacture healthcare supplies in the United States. One reason is that many overseas manufacturers have long-term contracts with US-based Group Purchasing Organizations (GPOs), which are the de facto gateway for most medical supplies into the US, because they dominate the market. Another reason is that there are few financial incentives to do so.

“Everything is reimbursed. Medicaid doesn’t care. They’re just looking for the cheapest product, not necessarily the best product,” says Einhorn. “So what’s the point of buying something made in the USA or a premium product? There are very few incentives to change.

Einhorn continues to call for fundamental changes in the structure of health care delivery in the United States, with better manufactured products. He cites NATO’s Pandemic Response Trust Fund, which is responsible for maintaining an established stockpile of medical equipment and supplies to be able to provide immediate aid to Allies or partners in need. There, he said, the emphasis was more on the best than on the cheap. But overall, the challenges are daunting and require action from both the private and public sectors.

“It takes a bit of everything to make it work,” he says.

Pamplin Media Group – West Linn man pleads guilty to distributing prescription drugs and steroids

Former dentist Salwan Wesam Adjaj is also facing COVID-19 relief fraud charges.

A 43-year-old West Linn man pleaded guilty in federal court Wednesday, July 13, to a charge of distributing controlled substances. The charge detailed the distribution of thousands of prescription drug pills as well as anabolic steroids.

Court documents from the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Oregon said Salwan Wesam Adjaj, a former dentist who practiced endodontics in Sherwood, Clackamas and Portland, but whose license was suspended by the board of dentistry in Oregon in 2020, distributed an array of substances between March 2016 and August 2020. These drugs included tramadol, anabolic steroids, injectable testosterone, phendimetrazine, diazepam, alprazolam (Xanax), lorazepam, carisoprodol (Soma), zolpidem, and promethazine.

“Adjaj used his position as a dentist to obtain some of these drugs from a pharmaceutical manufacturer,” a press release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office said. “None of the drugs distributed by Adjaj were for legitimate medical purposes.”

Adjaj remains in detention pending sentencing in October. According to the US Attorney’s Office, he faces a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison, a fine of $500,000 and up to three years of probation.

In a separate case, Adjaj is also facing charges of identity theft and wire fraud for allegedly using nearly $8 million in COVID-19 relief funds for his personal use.

Liberia: World Hope International and Korlu-Bu Neuroscience donate various medical supplies to clinics in rural Montserrado County

Arthington – It was a time of joy and relief for health practitioners, including administrators, supervisors and nurses in rural Montserrado when World Hope International (WHI) in collaboration with its partners, including the Korle -Bu Neuroscience Foundation (KBNF) and the Department of Health through the Montserrado County Health Team, they donated various medical items.

A total of nine health facilities in the St. Paul River District have benefited from the donation with a total population of over 108,721 patients per year.

The donation was part of an extension of WHI and KBNF’s joint efforts with the Montserrado County Health Team to strengthen the health care delivery system.

On the first day, the team, led by World Hope International Country Director Mathew Ndote, presented the papers at clinics in Gbondoi and Bromley in Virginia.

Some of the donated materials include syringes and needles, protective gear, BP cuffs, IV tubing, Ambu bags and bandages, among others.

Speaking to reporters at the end of the first day of distribution, Mr Ndote said WHI was heavily involved in providing water, sanitation and hygiene in deprived communities and in the fight against human trafficking. human being.

On separate occasions, clinic administrators thanked WHI and KBNF for the articles and pledged to use them for their intended purpose.

“We are blessed today for the items you – WHI and KBNF have brought to us. We are so overwhelmed and want to say a big thank you for thinking of Gbondoi Health Center at a time when we need it most. from you,” Marion C. Bropleh, the head of the Gbondoi clinic boasted.

Dr Alla MustafaievaVolunteer:

There is war in Ukraine right now. It’s very scary. It’s really hard to explain what’s going on right now. At the start of the Russian aggression, during the first days of the war, many people lost access to hospitals and pharmacies were closed. People had neither work nor money to buy medicine. Many people need psychiatric services. We have started to provide medical care and medicine to the refugees.

Halina RomanenkoDirector, Makariv Central District Hospital:

We really need this help right now given the very difficult situation in Ukraine. We cannot buy a lot of drugs and surgical consumables. We need them here, but we are also distributing these supplies to hospitals in busy locations.

Dr Alla:

Now, here at the church, we need medicine to send to the front line of the war, and we are distributing a range of medicine, pillows and instruments to the hospital in Makariv.

Dr. Tamara LatiukVolunteer:

There was an absolutely catastrophic shortage of medical supplies. Samaritan’s Purse provided many, and often. Your support with medical supplies helped us stock up on surgical supplies, infusion and infusion equipment, and equipment to prepare medication was very helpful.

UAB provides veterinary medical supplies to Ghanaian university struggling with supply chain issues

In 2010, McKenzie was invited to accompany a team to visit the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) School of Veterinary Medicine in Kumasi, Ghana to assess its veterinary infrastructure and research ways to collaborate. KNUST faculty moved to the United States in 2011. KNUST and Tuskegee have since collaborated, exchanging faculty and staff and hosting graduate students.

Almost 10 years later, with KNUST in mind, McKenzie applied to the Fulbright US Scholar Program to teach. In November 2021, he was able to visit its campus as a Fulbright US Scholar. His specialty is the internal medicine of large animals, including horses, cows, sheep, goats and pigs, encompassing all aspects of their medical well-being. He has taught diagnostic and treatment techniques to students and some junior teachers.

While working in Ghana, his wife, Veronica McKenzie, contacted Ray Watts, UAB President‘ office asking if UAB could donate suture materials. KNUST needed current or expired suture materials for animal surgeries. COVID-19[feminine], as well as the war in Ukraine, affected the university’s supply lines. He usually gets his supplies through European companies and with the unfortunate events of the last few years, especially this year, those supplies have been drastically reduced. The veterinary college was looking for other sources of supply, McKenzie said.

From left to right, Dr. Esther Amemor, Head of the Clinical Studies Department; Dr. Rejoice Nyarku, speaker; Veronica McKenzie; Catherine McKenzie; Joseph Atawalna, Deputy Dean of KNUST-SVM; Vitus Burimuah, head of the pathobiology department at KNUST; David McKenzie, American Fulbright Scholar; and Raphael Folitse, founding dean of KNUST-SVM. (UAB)

Watts’ office connected to UAB Research Office, who may have facilitated the donation. Watts thanked “our wonderful people” at the Animal Resources Program for collecting and packing the supplies and facilitating the donation.

“Ms. McKenzie was delighted with everything we were able to share and said they would be extremely helpful to Dr. McKenzie and her colleagues in Kumasi,” Watts said. She and their daughter, Catherine, brought the supplies to the Ghana in May.

UAB provided suture materials and basic surgical materials for treatment and teaching, which were immediately put to use.

“These supplies have been a huge help,” McKenzie said. “We got supplies from other sources, including Tuskegee University. We had much needed textbooks and other veterinary supplies from UAB. We are very happy to have entered into this partnership with UAB, and I hope that we can continue in one way or another.

Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology is one of West Africa’s leading universities, teaching subjects ranging from human and veterinary medicine to nursing, education and engineering to around 30 000 students. It is an important center for the training of scientists and technologists not only for Ghana but for other African countries and parts of the world.

Florida Governor DeSantis Takes Steps To Lower Prescription Drug Prices

TALAHASSEE – Calling for more “transparency” in prescription drug costs, Gov. Ron DeSantis issued an executive order on Friday aimed at increasing oversight of drug benefit managers.

The executive order will in part require audits of drug benefit managers who provide services under the state’s Medicaid managed care program and state employee health insurance program.

Pharmacy benefit managers act as something of an intermediary and play roles such as representing insurers in negotiations with pharmaceutical companies and pharmacies.

“It’s an incredibly opaque process,” DeSantis said during an appearance in Cape Coral to announce the executive order. The audits, for example, will include “a detailed review of potential inflation in dispensing fees and payments to drug manufacturers, insurers, and pharmacies, as such regarding a Medicaid managed care plan,” the executive order says. .

“The purpose of this audit is to ensure that all costs incurred by the State of Florida are justified.”

The executive order also requires state agencies to insert certain terms into new, renewed, or extended contracts that involve pharmacy benefit managers.

For example, one of those stipulations would prevent “clawbacks,” which the executive order says involve situations where pharmacy benefits managers keep money that is clawed back from overpayments to pharmacies.

DeSantis signed a bill (HB 357) last month that also seeks to increase oversight of drug benefit managers.

The bill planned to give the Office of Insurance Regulation more authority over drug benefit managers.

Small pharmacies, which have long complained about drug benefit managers, lobbied for the bill.

The governor of Florida wants to reduce the cost of prescription drugs

CAPE CORAL, Fla. — Florida Governor Ron DeSantis took the stage at Cape Coral High School on Friday to announce a plan to lower the cost of prescription drugs for state residents.

DeSantis announced he would sign an executive order that would allow the state to hold prescription benefit managers, or PBMs, accountable for the prices people are ultimately charged for their drugs, and open the door to reforms. He said it would also help small, independent pharmacies that want to stock these drugs.

DeSantis said he asked Simone Marstiller, secretary of the Agency for Healthcare Administration, to review PBMs and help find a way to ensure cost-cutting measures are in place.

“They do a lot more than set prices,” Marstiller explained. “They handle the pre-authorization. They have to approve getting your prescription, even after your doctor decides you need it.”

Marstiller said the executive order would be used as the basis for comprehensive prescription industry reform.

BNC News

Simone Marstiller, secretary of the Agency for Healthcare Administration, speaks during a press conference on July 8, 2022.

The governor also said he was studying a provision in federal law that would allow states to buy drugs from Canada and was working with federal agencies to enable that provision.

“Live their best and healthiest life”: delivering medical supplies to remote islands of Kiribati

It’s no exaggeration to say that pharmacist Moannara Benete literally holds one of the most important positions in the Pacific. Kiribati’s 21 inhabited islands are spread across some 3.5 million square kilometers of ocean, and as head of the pharmacy team at the Kiribati Ministry of Health and Medical Services, Moannara is focused on provision of medical supplies for all the inhabitants of his country; no matter where they live.

This was already a huge challenge before COVID-19, and the pandemic has only amplified these challenges. Medical supplies have been hard to come by and there have been significant delays in their arrival. This has led to an increase in orders for urgent medical supplies, which has driven up prices.

“Procurement of medical supplies is an important part of most health care services”, said Moannara Benetefrom his office in Tarawa, the capital of Kiribati. “Our goal is to improve the overall health of the population by procuring and purchasing quality, cost-effective medical supplies. A well-managed supply program supports economic and social development by keeping people as healthy as possible.

The logistics of managing pharmaceutical supplies on 21 islands spread over 3.5 million square kilometers of ocean is a huge challenge.

Take control of health service delivery

The World Bank supports Kiribati’s commitment to advancing Universal Health Coverage so that all I-Kiribati can access health services when they need them. A key part of this work is to help track development partner contributions to health programs, so that they are recognized as part of the integrated plans and budgets managed by the Department of Health and Medical Services. By doing so, the department is then able to make the most of all available resources, ensure it understands where support is coming from and when, and take control of health service delivery. in a more effective and holistic way.

While many can access health care when they need it on Kiribati’s main island of Tarawa, it is much more difficult to ensure clinics and pharmacies on the outer islands are stocked with sufficient supplies and equipment.

“I’m really happy with the progress made by the pharmacy team. We have limited resources, but we work well as a team and there is a lot of enthusiasm for what we do,” explains Moannara. “We are improving supply chain management, and now, for the first time, we also have a comprehensive national list of essential medical supplies – which includes medicines, equipment and consumables.”

“Health center staff are now using tablets to track what is coming in and going out. It really helped us develop a better picture of what we need and when we need it.

Improving supply chains

Moanara took up a position with the Department of Pharmacy of the Kiribati Ministry of Health and Medical Services in 2011 after earning a degree in pharmacy in Fiji. In 2019, she completed a Masters in Public Health from the University of Melbourne, Australia. She says her studies helped shape her vision for improving the healthcare system at home.

“It made me think that the pharmacy sector was more than just a curative department. I realized that it sits at the center of health service delivery in many ways – spanning the spectrum of preventive, curative, restorative and palliative care needs in this country,” said Moannara. “If we can get the supply chain and distribution in place, then everyone across the islands will benefit.”

Access to contraceptives

One area of ​​particular passion for Moannara is her team’s work on sexual and reproductive health.

“Sexual and reproductive health commodities have traditionally been hard to come by here in Kiribati. We have been dependent on the support of development partners,” she explains. “And with the borders closing due to COVID-19, it became even harder for us to get enough and there was a shortage.

“Yet our the data shows us that the number of married women with access to contraceptives has increased over the past decade, so if we can make sure the supplies are on the shelves, we know people will use them.

Doctor Jennifer ButlerDirector for the Pacific and Representative of the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), which supports this sexual and reproductive health work, says improving access to modern contraceptives and life-saving maternal health drugs is a job vital.

“It’s about improving access to contraceptives, increasing visibility of availability – so people know where to get contraceptives – and building more sustainable systems,” said Dr. Butler. “This is essential work with a strong focus on gender equality, human rights and prosperity for all; and is essential for achieving universal health coverage.

Live their best, healthiest life

Moannara believes ensuring equal access to health services is a big challenge for Kiribati, but one she and her team are ready to meet.

“Our pharmacy team is committed to building the capacity of our healthcare system. We’re driven by opportunities to learn as we go, and we’re certainly learning a lot. Leadership and effective and transparent decision-making are also very important,” said Moannara.

“We want to make sure that everyone has the opportunity to live their best life in the best state of health; no matter who they are or where they live.

World Bank support to the Kiribati Ministry of Health and Medical Services is provided in part by Advanced Universal Health Coveragea multi-donor trust fund set up by Australia Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade in 2015 to support the strengthening of health financing and service delivery systems in countries in East Asia and the Pacific. Other partners include Gavi, the global fundand the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

Sunflower Network is raising money to send drones, medical supplies and a fully equipped ambulance to war-torn Ukrainian cities

Sunflower Network members work on the ground in war-torn areas of Ukraine.

The sunflower network is made up of many college-aged students or recent graduates.

After Russia invaded Ukraine on February 24, Dustin Ross, a former University of Michigan student, spent a month trying to figure out how to help Ukrainians in need.

Most organizations, however, only wanted monetary donations. Desiring to find a way to help directly, Ross traveled to Eastern Europe to see the situation for himself.

He spent several weeks in Romania, Poland and Ukraine, talking to refugees and learning how to build an emergency supply of food, hygiene, medical and other items in the besieged territories – where some 40 million people are affected. by war.

Ross learned about an international network ready to help and how much Ukraine needed critical supplies to save lives. In a country with a destroyed and disrupted supply chain, even basic necessities like deodorant and feminine products were essential to secure.

[Read the latest coverage from Ukraine]

To get directly involved, Ross launched Sunflower Network, a pending 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that includes an ever-expanding network of people in the United States and abroad who bring in essential supplies. to Ukraine.

Eve Wasvary

The network is made up of many college-age students or recent graduates, including Eve Wasvary of Franklin, a 20-year-old student at the University of Michigan, who is currently doing internships in Tel Aviv and is affiliated with the University of Michigan. Hillel.

“I saw pictures [of the network’s work] through a mutual friend,” says Wasvary, who recently joined Sunflower Network and is now involved in fundraising efforts. In these photos, she saw Ross handing out gym bags filled with medicine and basic necessities to Ukrainians. Water purification systems and civil protection equipment were also delivered.

Inspired, she wanted to find a way to help. “They go directly to them,” she says of the supplies. “Sunflower Network has an Amazon Wishlist so you can purchase merchandise directly.” This helps donors know where their donations are going, she explains.

Sunflower Pride

As a symbol of Ukrainian national identity and pride, the sunflower has a deeper meaning than just a clever name for a network. With several members based in the Detroit metro area, the work spans international waters and includes three partners in Ukraine.

These Ukraine-based partners are making deliveries, helping find homes for displaced people, and even securing and distributing medical supplies, among other vital services.

“Sunflower Network has partners who understand what supplies are needed, and they get them around the world to different regions,” Wasvary explains. “Then they distribute them in the worst regions of Ukraine.”

This includes hard-hit cities like Mariupol, Kharkiv, Odessa and the Donbass region.

Recently, Sunflower Network distributed $25,000 worth of supplies to partners in Kyiv, Lviv and Zakarpattia. Now they are looking to acquire medical equipment for trauma victims, such as haemostatic bandages and tourniquets.

They also double their goals. The network’s third mission to Ukraine, on July 12, aims to raise $52,250. A private donor also matches all dollar donations through July 8.

As well as purchasing vital supplies, the aim is to transport a fully equipped ambulance from Ireland to Ukraine. Sunflower Network also plans to buy five drones with the funds, which help locate injured people in dangerous areas.

Supplies of all kinds are needed in this war-torn country.

Maintain War Consciousness

Wasvary says Ukraine needs help more than ever.

“I tried to raise awareness of the plight of these areas,” she says of towns like Mariupol, where up to 95% of the city is estimated to have been destroyed and people have hard to find drinking water or basic medicines. like antibiotics.

It is important for people to remember that the war continues, she explains, and that some regions continue to fall into a worse and more dangerous state.

“Now that I’m out of school, we hear a little about it, but not enough,” Wasvary says of the dwindling media coverage of the war. “I want people to know what’s going on.”

Together, she explains, “we can make such a difference.”

Even if people aren’t in a position to donate financially or send supplies, just being aware of the ongoing Russian-Ukrainian crisis helps propel the mission further. It’s a chain of events, Wasvary says, that sends the message from one person to another.

“Staying informed and understanding what’s going on, learning about what’s going on in the world…that’s the most important thing.”

Reviews | On prescription drugs, is Joe Manchin about to do the right thing?

The effort to save some of the programs of Build Back Better, the now-defunct centerpiece of President Biden’s national agenda, is so dependent on Senator Joe Manchin III that some in Washington call him Build Back Manchin. Yet the West Virginia Democrat has so often shattered the dreams of Democrats that many have given up hope that he would agree to anything.

But now there are new indications that negotiations are moving forward, and in ways that could rekindle several Democratic goals. It’s a reminder that no matter how desperate things seem, nothing is what it seems in the Senate, a murky, impenetrable place.

Senate Majority Leader Charles E. Schumer (DN.Y.) released a proposed bill allowing Medicare to negotiate prescription drug prices, which emerged from talks with Manchin. The bill has been given to the Senate parliamentarian to ensure it meets the conciliation requirements to allow the filibuster to be circumvented so that it can be passed by a simple majority.

The Democrats will need it, because so far precisely zero Senate Republicans support the bill. That could change, however, as allowing drug price negotiation has long been almost absurdly popular.

The bill would do the following:

  • Require the Department of Health and Human Services to negotiate prices for commonly used drugs, which will almost certainly reduce their cost.
  • Cap out-of-pocket drug costs for Medicare beneficiaries at $2,000 per year.
  • Limit the amount that drug companies can increase annually on existing drug prices to the rate of inflation.
  • Extending assistance to seniors earning up to 150% of the poverty line to afford medication (currently those earning up to 135% of poverty receive such assistance).

A lobbyist for PhRMA, the drug companies trade group, criticized the plan, which is a good indication that it would indeed bring prices down.

Manchin has frequently cited inflation as a justification for scrapping Democratic spending bills, but those proposals are a way to address inflation. The Prescription Drug Bill limits annual price increases, and other spending that savings could fund would help ease the burden of inflation, particularly the Affordable Care Act’s extended subsidies (see below).

Not to mention the political advantage. Every election, Democrats promise to rein in the abysmal price of prescription drugs (and more than a few Republicans do too). This desire then collides with the enormous lobbying power of the pharmaceutical industry, which is why Americans continue to pay far more for drugs than the citizens of any other country.

Ensuring that, then, would be a serious achievement, after a year in which Democratic infighting and BBB paralysis have helped define the party.

What’s more, the Medicare prescription drug movement also offers a tantalizing possibility: It could open the door for Manchin to strike a broader deal that also extends the ACA’s expanded subsidies.

The expanded grants, which were originally passed in the 2021 covid-19 bailout, are set to expire at the end of this year. They were meant to be extended as part of BBB, but Manchin killed that.

Expiring now would mean millions of people would see their premiums go up, and a few million more could lose their coverage altogether. Given that Democrats have spent a decade winning the ACA argument, while slowly expanding it toward universal health care, such a massive regression would be a total disaster, both substantively and politically.

Fortunately, NBC News reports that Manchin is open to extending the grants, though he doesn’t seem enthusiastic about it.

Here’s the thing, though: if Manchin is willing to do it, it absolutely can be done within the parameters he has set himself.

Here’s why: Most reports suggest Manchin seems open to a revived, scaled-back BBB that raises about $1 trillion, both by undoing some GOP tax cuts in 2017 and with Medicare prescription drug reform. (which would save the government money).

Manchin wants to invest half of that trillion dollars in deficit reduction. That would leave about $500 billion for public and social spending.

If about $300 billion of that were dedicated to funding the clean energy transition, through tax incentives and other means — a key part of the BBB that Manchin seems open to — that would leave about $200 billion. dollars for extension of ACA grants.

Larry Levitt, executive vice president of health policy at the Kaiser Family Foundation, says it’s entirely possible to fund the vast majority of extended grants with that amount. The cost of extending them to all would be estimated at $220 billion, so it would be feasible to reduce it to $200 billion, perhaps by reducing these subsidies for those eligible on the highest incomes.

“You could definitely extend the ACA grants and still help the vast majority of enrollees with $200 billion,” Levitt told us. “The numbers certainly add up for a package that lowers drug prices and keeps premiums in check under the ACA.”

So Manchin can have it all! He can have a reformed tax code, climate tax incentives, lower prescription drug prices and expanded ACA subsidies — cutting costs for people he says are being hammered by inflation — and he can have hundreds of billions of dollars in deficit reduction to boot.

All Manchin has to do is take yes for an answer.

Prescriptions for medical cannabis products increased almost tenfold in 2021

According to figures released by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), prescriptions for unauthorized medical cannabis in the private healthcare sector have increased by nearly 1,000% over a 12-month period.

The health and social services regulator’s report — ‘Managing Controlled Medications Safer: 2021 Annual Update‘, published in July 2022 – indicates that 37,634 cannabis medical products (CBMPs) were prescribed by non-NHS health services between January and November 2021, compared to 3,636 over the same period in 2020.

Conversely, during the same period, NHS prescribing of CBMP in England was so low that data could not be reported.

“The number of items prescribed in the NHS is so small that it could potentially affect patient confidentiality,” the report said.

On April 25, 2022, in response to a written question on the assessment made of the adequacy of access to medical cannabis for those eligible, Pharmacy Minister Maria Caulfield said: “Licensed cannabis medicines are regularly available on the NHS.

“However, clinical guidelines from the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence demonstrate a clear need for more evidence to support routine prescribing and funding decisions for cannabis products not authorized for medical use. until this evidence base is built, prescribers will remain reluctant to prescribe and no decisions can be made by the NHS on routine funding.

In July 2020, a CQC report found that in 2019 – the first year CBMPs were legally available – 18 NHS prescriptions were issued in England.

Then, in October 2020, the National Institute for Health Research confirmed that no government-funded medical cannabis trials were underway, despite a call for applications.

Several private health clinics capable of providing CBMPs have been established since the legalization of medical cannabis in November 2018.

At the time of publication of the latest CQC update, there were 15 registered providers of unlicensed CBMP in England, with more being assessed for registration.

Sapphire Medical Clinic was the first dedicated medical cannabis clinic in the UK to be registered by the CQC on October 3, 2019.

Commenting on the recent increase in CBMP prescriptions, Simon Erridge, Head of Research and Access at Sapphire Medical Clinics, said: “Since 2020, we have seen an 846% increase in the number of patients accessing our specialist service. .

“The prescribing of unlicensed cannabis medicines through the NHS has not seen the same growth. The most important reason behind this is the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence guideline issued in 2019, which has not showed sufficient clinical benefit over the costs then associated with these drugs.

“There is also a lack of randomized controlled trials showing the effectiveness of CBMPs compared to other licensed drugs.”

The Woods at Parkside releases guide to prescription drug addiction

GAHANNA, OHIO, USA, July 5, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Woods at Parkside has released a guide on how to become addicted to prescription drugs. It reviews the risks, why people become addicted, the most popular drugs they become addicted to, and how to seek help.

People do not plan to become addicted to their prescription medications, but can often become addicted to the feeling of their pain relief. Groups that are at higher risk for prescription drug addiction include:

• Advanced age
• Female gender
• Poor or fair general health
• Drink daily
• Use of the drug for non-medical purposes

Many of the drugs that people take and become addicted to are usually associated with prescription drugs given after surgery or to help treat a mental health condition. The five most common prescription drugs that people become addicted to are:

1. Opioids: Given to help manage severe pain.
2. Anti-anxiety drugs: prescribed to reduce or prevent anxiety.
3. Sedatives: Helps people sleep after painful procedures.
4. Barbiturates: Used as sedatives to achieve deep, restorative sleep.
5. CNS stimulants: Central nervous system stimulants for ADHD.

Drugs that are addictive usually give someone a pleasurable experience that they want to continue having. They often solve the problems the person had by relieving pain or making it easier to sleep. However, as the body adapts to the medication, it may give someone less pleasure and not solve the problem, which is when someone can increase their dose.

Some signs of prescription drug addiction include:

• Steal prescription drugs
• Forge Ordinances
• Sell prescriptions or prescription drugs
• Have mood swings
• Make bad decisions or bad judgments
• Request refills sooner than needed
• Consult different doctors to get more prescriptions

The Woods at Parkside is a residential detox and recovery facility that can help people with addictions in Gahanna, Ohio. The staff includes doctors, nurses, and therapists who work together to create a treatment plan that helps drug-related challenges. If someone or someone they know is struggling with drug addiction, they can visit the Woods at Parkside website to learn more about treatment options.

Alberta safe supply report criticized for bias and focuses on prescription drugs

Content of the article

An Alberta legislative committee exploring the issue of safe drug supply has released a report that critics say is biased and focuses too much on the overprescription of opioids.

Advertisement 2

Content of the article

The 57-page report of the Select Select Committee to Review Secure Procurement includes eight recommendations, although adopting a secure procurement program is not one of them.

Associate Minister for Mental Health and Addictions Mike Ellis said in a statement that the government would “carefully consider” the findings.

“As we continue to implement a recovery-oriented system of care in Alberta, work is already underway that aligns with some of the committee’s recommendations,” the statement said.

A spokesman for the UCP caucus, which handles the committee’s investigations, did not respond to a request for comment after the report was released this week without any government announcement.

Safe supply is known as a harm reduction practice in which some drug users are provided with a legal, regulated supply of drugs to help them avoid entering the illicit toxic drug market.

Advertisement 3

Content of the article

At least three of the report’s eight recommendations relate to prescription opioids. One calls on the Government of Alberta to prevent “harmful pharmaceutical practices such as the widespread prescribing of full agonist opioids, often used in safe supply practice, which can lead to community diversion and increased addiction and overdoses.

The Edmonton Area Medical Staff Association (EZMSA), which launched an opioid poisoning committee in response to Alberta’s drug poisoning crisis, said the report’s focus on diversion of prescription opioids ignores the current reality.

“While the first wave of the opioid crisis may be linked to pharmaceutical marketing tactics and opioid prescribing incentives, since 2012 there has been ongoing education about restrictions and monitoring of opioid prescribing. opioids by regulatory colleges across Canada,” the EZMSA said. .

Content of the article

“In fact, since these programs were instituted, the rate of dispensing of opioids has shown a dramatic decline across Canada.

According to the province’s Substance Use Surveillance System, which tracks drug poisoning deaths, 95% of opioid-related deaths in 2021 were due to non-pharmaceutical opioids.

“More regulation on prescribing will not impact the current poisoning crisis – preventable deaths will continue to occur,” EZMSA said.

EZMSA provided a written submission to the Safe Procurement Committee and although the association is listed as a stakeholder, the submission was not included in the final report.

Dr. Bonnie Larson, a professor of family medicine at the University of Calgary who practices primary care and addiction medicine, echoed EZMSA’s concerns.

Content of the article

She said the recommendations focus on a controlled medical environment, opioid prescribing and diversion prevention, as well as increased law enforcement involvement.

“While we once hoped we could get support to prescribe a safer supply of opioids to people who really need them, this report is not reassuring,” Larson said. “I think it’s actually increased the fear in our community of being disciplined by the government or the government pressuring the college to (surveil) the prescribers.”

Two of the committee’s recommendations call on the government to allow “replacement within the framework of a treatment plan under strict medical supervision in the clinic” and collaborate with the College of Physicians and Surgeons to “ensure that physicians are informed of the criteria for prescribing appropriate opioids.

Advertising 6

Content of the article

About two-thirds of the report consists of a heavily critiqued review by staff at the Center for Applied Research in Mental Health and Addiction at Simon Fraser University (SFU).

While the review found ‘no evidence showing benefits’ of a safer drug supply, more than 50 researchers and clinicians signed an open letter criticizing SFU’s work as ‘extremely low quality’ .

“It’s a biased report, as we knew,” Larson said of the committee’s final report. “It relies on commissioned non-scientific information.”

Accusations of bias have been leveled against the committee since its inception in December 2021.

In February, four New Democrat MPs from Alberta resigned from the committee over concerns that the UCP had “clear intentions of staging a protracted political coup” against harm reduction policies. They also criticized the lack of diversity among the presenters.

Advertising 7

Content of the article

The UCP caucus said the NDP was indulging in its own political stunt by stepping down.

The committee’s work was also rejected by several experts and advocates, including the British Columbia Center on Substance Use, Moms Stop the Harm and Each and Every, who declined to appear before the committee. They raised concerns about the lack of representation of people to whom safe supply is prescribed, the lack of an academic community conducting primary research on safe supply, and the lack of safe supply prescribing physicians.

Other recommendations in the report call on the government to establish a provincial pain management strategy and step up police efforts to guide people towards recovery using “alternatives to the criminal justice system.”

St. Luke’s Community Clinic shares medical supplies with locals and third world countries – Royal Examiner

While the local school district’s new budget isn’t exactly what the Warren County School Board was originally looking for, they voted 5-0 on Wednesday, June 29 to approve it so that Warren County Public Schools Warren (WCPS) can continue to operate without interruption.

During the special school board meeting, School Board Chair Kristen Pence, Vice Chair Ralph Rinaldi, and members Antoinette Funk, Andrea Lo, and Melanie Salins unanimously adopted WCPS’ budget for the fiscal year. 2022-2023, which totals approximately $69 million and includes approximately $53.2. million dollars for its operating fund, nearly $12.4 million for capital improvements and nearly $3.4 million for the cafeteria fund.

The new operating budget is lower than what the school district originally passed and then sought approval from the Warren County Board of Supervisors (BOS), as the BOS voted unanimously on Tuesday, June 28 to fund Temporarily WCPS operations at 75% due to tax concerns. So while WCPS had requested nearly $71 million for its FY23 school operating fund—bringing its total FY23 budget request to nearly $92 million—the school division has so far agreed to adopt the total budget of $69,007,344 for the upcoming school year.

WCPS Superintendent Christopher Ballenger at the June 29 special school board meeting.

That amount, WCPS Superintendent Christopher Ballenger said, is enough to allow the district to continue operations beginning July 1. “If we didn’t have a budget of course on Friday we couldn’t open our doors,” he told the school. Plank. “It at least keeps our doors open.”

As part of the FY23 budget, WCPS employees will receive a 5% salary increase, including an experience step, as well as $1,000 bonuses provided by the State of Virginia. WCPS Chief Financial Officer Robert Ballentine said employees can expect to receive these bonuses by the end of the year.

State bonuses will be in addition to pandemic-related bonuses for WCPS employees. Full-time employees who worked during the 2021-2022 school year — and who return for the upcoming school year — will receive a net bonus of $1,500; this includes recent retirees. Part-time WCPS employees during the 2021-2022 school year will receive $750, while employees hired after December 31, 2021 will be eligible for half the full-time and part-time bonuses.

After some back and forth over the past month between boards, BOS agreed on Tuesday to allow WCPS to transfer $125,000 between school board budget categories to help cover its one-time employee bonuses, which are expected to total approximately 1.7 million dollars and are in the majority. funded by funds remaining from vacancies from the last school year, mid-year turnover, new employees entering on a lower pay scale, etc.

The approved FY23 WCPS operating fund also covers funding for 15.5 new positions, grounds maintenance, student transportation and technology, among other things, according to the supervisor’s budget document.

The school board and BOS plan to continue working together to finalize WCPS’ FY23 budget. Both Pence and Ballenger told the Royal Examiner earlier this week that they remain hopeful of improved communication between their councils.

“I am pleased that we now have the opportunity to talk about this budget in more detail and discuss its impact on the school system so that an informed decision can be made regarding the division’s FY23 budget,” Ballenger wrote. in an email.

“I look forward to the conversations ahead of us between the school board budget subcommittee and the board of supervisors,” Pence wrote.

At the special school board meeting on Wednesday, Funk said members of the board’s budget committee were discussing the budget and options presented at the BOS meeting on Tuesday and hoped to meet with members of the BOS budget subcommittee next week. .

Lo said members of the school board’s budget committee also discussed how to establish better communication between themselves and members of the BOS budget subcommittee “to ensure that our goals are aligned with the goals of the supervisors so that we work together”.

Rinaldi said there should be a timeline developed and adopted to settle the FY23 budget. “I think it’s important to start our plan for the fall,” he added.

Other action
The school board unanimously agreed to ask BOS to increase the WCPS technology category in the FY22 budget operating fund by $140,476. WCPS received a grant from the Federal Communications Commission ( FCC) to install Wi-Fi connectivity on its school buses. To spend the grant money, an additional credit must be received by the BOS. Ballenger said the grant money is for the installation of a Wi-Fi radio system to enable direct communications between buses and schools. “We are getting closer to having [this system] fully implemented for this year,” he added.

Going back, Pence said, the school board at an earlier meeting had voted to approve the purchase and use and to date had not made that additional appropriation.

For this type of grant, WCPS Chief Financial Officer Ballentine explained that WCPS must first spend the money before getting the federal reimbursement, “which is currently in the works,” he said.

Because of that, the county has already advanced, so to speak, the money to pay for it. So that request would essentially be to reimburse the county for local funds that were advanced to pay for the system, and then WCPS will be reimbursed with federal funds, Ballentine said.

In a proactive move, school board members asked Ballentine if they should change the way they make these requests to the BOS. For example, when notified of receiving a grant, should the school board then go to the BOS and explain that the grant is coming, what will be done with the funds, and at that time request a credit increase of that specific amount. The school board would then be able to issue a contract and accept the grant.

“The way I see it, that would be, in an ideal world, the best way to handle this,” Ballentine said. “It’s asking for permission rather than forgiveness.”

Following a motion from Rinaldi asking the BOS to increase the 68,000 Technology category of the school board’s operating budget for the 2021-2022 fiscal year by $140,476, with a second from Funk, the board voted 5 -0 to approve.

Additionally, WCPS Director of Staff Shane Goodwin (above) presented the 2022 staff report to the school board on Wednesday for approval.

Goodwin also updated the school board on the number of vacancies facing WCPS for the upcoming school year. As of June 29, WCPS must fill a total of 39 positions: 29 teachers, eight teaching assistants, and two central office positions (new director of communications and community engagement and an assistant superintendent for instruction).

“We have all worked hard to ensure that we find the best candidates for our students in our classrooms and at each of our facilities,” Goodwin said.

Prior to the vote on the staff report, school board member Salins asked if board members could be present at exit interviews for outgoing WCPS staff. Goodwin said he would like to ask Dr.
Ballenger to work with the band “and we’ll find a way to present that in a format that you would like.”

Salins asked again: “Is there a way for us to take into account the advice of the [Warren County] The supervisory board gave us [during its June 28 meeting] and actually doing physical interviews with departing staff in hopes that we can stop them from leaving and just sort out any issues they might have? »

“The practice that’s in place now goes back quite some time,” Goodwin replied. “I’m sure we have the flexibility to adjust this as you see fit or as needed.

“Of course, I would love to have the opportunity for us to retain people because we wouldn’t have to recruit,” Goodwin said. “We would be happy to look into this as long as it falls within our policy which you have all approved. If necessary, we could create a new one. We would be happy to do this together.

Following a motion from Funk with a second from Salins, the school board voted 5-0 to approve the 2022 staff report, which included four resignations, one retirement and 12 appointments.
