Riester MR, Zullo AR. Prediction tool Development and Implementation in pharmacy praCTice (PreDICT) proposed guidance. American journal of health-system pharmacy : AJHP : official journal of the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists. 2023 Jan 24; 80(3):111-123.
PURPOSE: Proposed guidance is presented for Prediction tool Development and Implementation in pharmacy praCTice (PreDICT). This guidance aims to assist pharmacists and their collaborators with planning, developing, and implementing custom risk prediction tools for use by pharmacists in their own health systems or practice settings. We aimed to describe general considerations that would be relevant to most prediction tools designed for use in health systems or other pharmacy practice settings. SUMMARY: The PreDICT proposed guidance is organized into 3 sequential phases: (1) planning, (2) development and validation, and (3) testing and refining prediction tools for real-world use. Each phase is accompanied by a checklist of considerations designed to be used by pharmacists or their trainees (eg, residents) during the planning or conduct of a prediction tool project. Commentary and a worked example are also provided to highlight some of the most relevant and impactful considerations for each phase. CONCLUSION: The proposed guidance for PreDICT is a pharmacist-focused set of checklists for planning, developing, and implementing prediction tools in pharmacy practice. The list of considerations and accompanying commentary can be used as a reference by pharmacists or their trainees before or during the completion of a prediction tool project.
