Subscribe to Our Practice by the UBC Pharmacists Clinic for support in your patient care practice.
As pharmacy professionals, our patient care practice continues to evolve and grow. Every change and nuance requires a shift in how we think and what we do each day. Although practice environments have unique circumstances and elements, most pharmacists face similar challenges and have a lot in common.
The UBC Pharmacists Clinic team is pleased to introduce Our Practice, a new bi-monthly e-newsletter created as a resource for the practicing pharmacist and pharmacy technician. In each issue, we bring you tools and other information that we have found helpful in our day-to-day role as patient care providers.
Feature articles include practice topics we get asked about most often such as: identifying hidden high-need patients, gathering key information during patient intakes, accessing and using lab values, digging deeper to find more drug therapy problems, and prioritizing drug therapy problems. Some issues also include FYI items our pharmacists have found particularly useful.
In addition, each issue includes a case involving a patient seen at the Clinic. Each case describes a patient care challenge, how our pharmacists responded, and what happened as a result. Each of the cases has been peer-reviewed and qualifies as a non-accredited CE learning activity for the annual professional development renewal requirements by the College of Pharmacists of BC.
Our Practice is a way for pharmacists to share information and support one another during these challenging, exciting, and changing times.
