A Question of Ethics

Posted by: Brendan FraserWed, 15 Jan 2014

Ethics is such a controversial topic. Ethical dilemmas can occur daily for some pharmacists whether it be unsigned prescriptions or issues surrounding patient confidentiality. Having thought quite deeply about ethics, I believe nothing can really prepare you for a ethical dilemma unless you actually experience them. This can be quite daunting.

Checking and Thinking

Posted by: Brendan FraserMon, 4 Nov 2013

I checked my first item as a pharmacist last week. Itwas a prescription of paracetamol suspensionfor a one year old child. I remember a tutor telling some students that you'llalways remember checking your first item, then she rolled off what hers was. Iremember thinking how peculiar that was. Is it the fact that as pharmacists we

A Quick Reflection On My Pre-Reg Year

Posted by: Brendan FraserTue, 9 Jul 2013

I am sad and yet glad, to be finishing my pre-registration year this week. I have learnt so much this year, but I feel like it's gone so very fast. I am sure many pre-reg's would agree with me. I would probably argue that I learnt more about myself and others than I did about medicines. Which is probably a strange thing to say.

Community Cross Sector Placement

Posted by: Brendan FraserThu, 28 Feb 2013

I completed my two week cross sector placement in community pharmacy last week. I'm going to be honest, it was hard work! Initially, I knew how busy it would be as I had worked at the branch previously.But, unless my memory is failing me, it felt like it had got worse.

Individual / Corporate Responsibility

Posted by: Brendan FraserThu, 31 Jan 2013

A lot flashes through my mind on a daily basis. This can actually be quite frustrating as I consider all sorts of, what would appear to be, nonsense. However, a lot of what I think about actually isn’t... Anyway, down to business.

Self Directed Time Management

Posted by: Brendan FraserMon, 17 Dec 2012

Time management is important as a pre-reg. I am actually finding it more difficult than I expected. It isn’t necessarily about the lack of time; it’s more how I spend it.

The Role of a Pharmacist

Posted by: Brendan FraserTue, 20 Nov 2012

This is funny to admit at this stage of my pre-registration year, but I do not fully understand the role of a pharmacist. Those of you who read my blogs may be thinking – “why?” Surely after four years at university and four months of pre-registration training I should understand the role of the pharmacist. But the truth is I don’t, and here’s why.

Future Medicine

Posted by: Brendan FraserThu, 11 Oct 2012

One of my more recent speculations has been concerning the future of medicine as technology advances. In my opinion, it is becoming ever clearer that the majority of diseases are associated with specific genetic/protein regulation modification. This has caused me to consider where the future of medicine may lie.

IDDM – Why?

Posted by: Brendan FraserFri, 28 Sep 2012

I stumbled across a newly diagnosed type 1 diabetic patient recently and was suddenly bewildered. I understand the basics surrounding diabetes, but wondered why the destruction of insulin-producing pancreatic cells actually occurs.

Unconsidered Death

Posted by: Brendan FraserTue, 21 Aug 2012

Death is a difficult subject to discuss. In general, I find it isn't really talked about, almost like a secret. This makes sense due to the deep sadness surrounding death. Who would want to discuss something so morbid?
