New Antimicrobial Stewardship Standard Issued by The Joint Commission


BETHESDA, MD 27 Jun 2016—The Joint Commission on June 22 issued a prepublication version of the new antimicrobial stewardship standard for hospitals, critical access hospitals, and nursing care centers and stated that it becomes effective January 1.


This new medication management standard has eight so-called elements of performance. One of these requires accredited healthcare organizations to have an "antimicrobial stewardship multidisciplinary team" and, when available in the healthcare setting, at least one pharmacist on that team.

Topline Results Positive for Cannabidiol in Lennox-Gastaut


Following release in March of positive topline results from a phase 3 trial of an investigational cannabidiol product (Epidiolex, GW Pharmaceuticals) in patients with Dravet syndrome, GW Pharmaceuticals has now announced more positive results, this time from a phase 3 study in patients with Lennox-Gastaut syndrome (LGS).

Like Dravet syndrome, LGS is a rare and severe form of epilepsy that begins in infancy or early childhood. Epidiolex is a liquid formulation of pure plant-derived cannabidiol, a nonpsychoactive component of the cannabis plant.   Read the news release HERE.
