A Population-based Transdisciplinary Innovation to Improve the Safe Use of Nonsteroidal Anti-inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs)

Community-wide data spanning the past decade reveals that upper gastrointestinal (UGI) hemorrhage related to NSAID use is the most frequent adverse drug reaction that results in admission to each of our city’s hospitals. Based on these data, a community-wide transdisciplinary committee was formed to develop and implement population-based strategies to improve the safe use of NSAIDs. The committee’s aims are threefold: To develop high quality patient education materials regarding safe NSAIDs use; To increase patient and health care provider knowledge about safe NSAID use; To facilitate research to improve the safe use of NSAIDs. Committee activities to date include developing and widely distributing two complimentary patient education brochures and a patient education video, increasing the percentage of high risk hospitalized patients who receive NSAID education, and providing the impetus for four externally-funded research projects to study methods to improve the safe use of NSAIDs. In addition to delineating information specific to our population-based approach to reducing risks associated with NSAID use, the presentation will: Identify strategies and barriers to initiating and maintaining membership in community-wide transdisciplinary committees; Identify population-based health improvement strategies that committees can implement; Discuss funding sources for projects (e.g., brochures, videos, research); Identify methods to evaluate committee effectiveness.
