The e-cigarette appeal

Posted by: Sara ValenteSun, 16 Feb 2014

E-cigarettes are appealing because they are one way to giveup smoking without really having to give up smoking. They are aestheticallysimilar to real cigarettes and offer the same nicotine-fuelled buzz that iscraved by smokers. In theory, they could vastly reduce medical problems

Written communication in pharmacy

Posted by: Sara ValenteMon, 4 Mar 2013

Students who pick pharmacy as a career usually do so because they have an interest in science, they want to work with people and have a flair for analysing problems. These students sometimes choose a scientific career because they also prefer subjects that don’t require the need to write lots of essays. The good news is there isn’t a lot of essay writing on a pharmacy course, as we focus on calculations, graph-drawing and multiple choice questions but we must not abandon all knowledge ...

Legalised marijuana

Posted by: Sara ValenteWed, 2 Jan 2013

Recently, two American states - Colorado and Washington, have legalised the recreational use of marijuana with a legal age limit of 21 years old. Some reasons behind the reform are about winning the war on drugs, taxes and preventing drug-related crimes.

Is community pharmacy losing student fans?

Posted by: Sara ValenteThu, 11 Oct 2012

 Most of the students in my year have been spending the past couple of months applying and securing their pre-reg placements. What struck me as strange was that many of them who showed little interest in hospital pharmacy in the past, applied and accepted places to do their pre-reg in hospital. In fact, I think many students have applied to hospital pharmacy in preference to community.

One of my favourite things to blog about is the weird andwonderful vanity items that pop up in stores that claim to boost such things astanning and weight loss. The latest that has caught my eye is a new type of eyeliner from the brand M2 Beauté that can apparently, after severalapplications, promote eyelash growth. This isn’t the same as mascaras that make

Posted by: Sara ValenteWed, 23 May 2012

Pre-Registration applications are well underway and many students are waiting for offers of interviews from hospitals, community and industry. The interview may be the most vital part of the application as it will ultimately decide whether a person receives a placement or not.

Apps and pharmacy

Posted by: Sara ValenteSat, 12 May 2012

I love my iPhone, it’s true. As I tell most of my friends, it is practically an extension of my brain as it keeps my dates in a calendar, my to-do-list, recipes, games and more all thanks to applications or ‘apps’ as they are known. There are so many possibilities and uses for apps that can make everyday tasks a little easier. Apps are becoming more advanced, sophisticated and programmers are making money by creating apps ...
