Tomorrow's pharmacist blog
So, apparently a few pharmacists have been selling POMs and CDs over the counter with sildenafil, diazepam and morphine liquid being amongst them.
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.
After spending about 12 years in community pharmacy, it’s safe to say I have seen a lot of transactions between counter staff and customers. But are these always 100% safe and effective?
After revising my lectures, in which we covered the immune system, I started to think....If our immune system has the ability to recognise cancer cells, due to them displaying a signal that they have been transformed, could we use them to help treat certain cancers?
The pharmaceutical industry createsproducts that help people live longer and better lives. So why is it hated? How have the companies it compromises destroyedthe goodwill?
I have just stumbled across an article, purely by typing the wrong thing into google. I put it down to fate! I found some fascinating research that I hope interests one or two of you as well as me!It turns out that our immune system, specifically leukocytes, have a huge role in metabolic disease and are intrinsically linked with obesity.
Yes, you read it right – are we getting the most out of our patients, or more accurately are patients getting the most out of other patients?Let me explain myself!
What a weekend! I have just got back from the BPSA conference and the focus of today was ‘Science into practice’. Something that I am really interested in, as you can probably tell from my other blogs!
I never thought I was very good at science – it always posed more questions than it answered and was very complicated with lots of work to learn for exams. Since I started Uni, I realised that learning was SO much more than passing exams.
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.
Recently when I was wasting time on the internet, I stumbled across an article on the Times Higher Education website. It was written by one Kevin Smith of the University of Abertay Dundee about another article discussing the increasing numbers of students studying pharmacy in the UK.
The Pennine area BPSA conference took place this Saturday (17thNovember) at Manchester University, which boasted a sold out event with topspeakers. Annie Sellers – a fourth year pharmacy student at Manchester University –
A Daily Mail article was brought to my attention about a newdeodorant that is being marketed by Deo Perfume but instead of applying it to yourarmpits, you eat it! The scientific rationale behind the new candy is that it
Any attempt I make to describe aweek in the life of a hospital pre-reg promotes the conclusion that there is no‘typical’ day. However, over the nextcouple of months, I intend to blog through a few weeks of my working life as apre-registration pharmacist. Maybe this will give students an insight into
Despite what it might seem, the process of creating drug names does not involve a bowl of alphabet soup, someone sneezing and interpretation of the resulting mess. The process is a little more considered than that.
I must admit, I had never heard of epigenetics until this week so I have done what any scientist would: started a literature search on the topic.
