Tomorrow's pharmacist blog

Whilst casually browsing twitter the other day, I came across the following article on New Scientist. I almost started laughing when I read this. Anti-fatigue drug helps tired doctors – good idea? Well no. It isn’t!
Prescribing under patient group directives, clinical management plans, training and only prescribing within your competency are all sensible ideas when it comes to non-medical prescribing. However, a fourth year pharmacy practice lecture today reminded me of some outrageous legislation which needs to change.
If I posed the question ‘how is your mental health’? What would your answer be?... Now imagine a response from one of your patients? It’s difficult, right?
The other day I attended a lecture that gave me some chilling statistics on Cancer and how our knowledge of it has changed over the years. This led my mind a wandering to thinking about a book I had read recently, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot.
It doesn’t matter what line of work you’re in, prioritising is such an important skill. On a day to day basis everyone prioritises depending on what tasks they have to do.
