    ABSTRACT: The paper proposes a new calibration estimator for the distribution function of the study variable. This estimator is a distribution function unlike others estimators that use auxiliary information. Comparisons are made with existing estimators in two simulation studies.

    ABSTRACT: OBJECTIVE: to prioritize previously identified in Spain facilitators for the implementation of new Pharmaceutical Services that allow designing strategies for the implementation of Medication Review with follow-up (MRFup) service. DESIGN, SETTING AND PARTICIPANTS: Exploratory factor analysis (EFA). A draft of a questionnaire was performed based on a previous literature review and following the RAND/UCLA methodology. An expert panel worked with it and generated a definitive questionnaire which, after piloting, was used with a representative sample of pharmacists, owners or staff members, who were working in community pharmacy, using computer-assisted telephone interviewing (CATI) methodology. To understand underlying constructs in the questionnaire an EFA was performed. Different approaches were tested such as principal components factor analysis and principal axis factoring method. The best interpretability was achieved using the Factorization of Principal axis method with Direct Oblimin rotation, which explained the 40.0% of total variance. RESULTS: This produced four factors defined as: «Incentives», «External campaigns», «Expert in MRFup» and «Professionalism of the pharmacist». CONCLUSIONS: It can be stated that for implementation and sustainability of MRFup Service it is necessary being paid; also it must be explained to health professional and society in general. Practice of MRFup service demands pharmacists receiving a more clinical education and assuming more responsibilities as health professionals.

    ABSTRACT: Difference type estimators use auxiliary information based on an auxiliary parameter (specifically the parameter of interest), associated with the auxiliary variable. In practice, however, several parameters for auxiliary variables are available. This paper discusses how such estimators can be modified to improve the usual methods if information related to other parameters associated with an auxiliary variable or variables is available. Some applications estimating several such parameters are described. A proper set of simulation-based comparisons is made.
