Dr. Schumock Serves as Invited Editor of Pharmacotherapy Special Issue on Rising Cost of Pharmaceuticals
Dr. Glen Schumock, CPR Faculty and Department Head of PSOP, served as a guest editor for a Special Issue of Pharmacotherapy published in January 2017. The theme of the issue is the “Rising Cost of Pharmaceuticals” and in addition to an editorial co-authored by Dr. Schumock titled “The Rising Cost of Prescription Drugs: Causes and Solutions,” 9 manuscripts in the same issue provide an up-to-date analysis of topics related to the rising costs of pharmaceuticals. Access to health care in the U.S. is under renewed scrutiny and a cornerstone of an efficient health care system is affordable pharmacotherapy. The themed issue co-edited by Dr. Schumock is an important contribution to the ongoing discussions of how the availability of effective and safe pharmaceuticals can be assured for the population who will benefit from drug therapy.
