Evaluation of a modified and abbreviated scale for assessing chronic illness care for medication therapy management practice.
The purpose of the study was to evaluate the validity and internal consistency of the Assessment of Chronic Illness Care (ACIC) abbreviated, 12-item scale as a novel instrument for measuring Medication Therapy Management (MTM) care delivery. Researchers administered the instrument to pharmacists employed at 27,560 community pharmacies. The study concluded that when applied to the measurement of chronic illness care within the MTM setting, the abbreviated ACIC showed acceptable validity and internal consistency, and could serve as a valuable tool.

Medication therapy management interventions in outpatient settings: a systematic review and meta-analysis.
Medication therapy management (MTM) services (also called clinical pharmacy services) aim to reduce medication-related problems and their downstream outcomes. The purpose of this study was to assess the effect of MTM interventions among outpatients with chronic illnesses. The investigators graded the evidence as insufficient for most outcomes because of inconsistency and imprecision that stemmed in part from underlying heterogeneity in populations and interventions.
