Last session for me today at @APSAD40 on prescription opioids, treatment, and prescription drug monitoring programs. First up - a mini-symposium with @PPrathivadi , @LouisaPicco and @Sarah_Haines_ .. lets see if I can pull out a few key findings 1/
2/ First up @PPrathivadi talking about GPs use of PDMP, benefits for informing prescribing but challenges with reluctance to use technology - also check out this super commentary with @Sarah_Haines_ in the @AusJPrimHealth on evaluation considerations
publish.csiro.au/py/PY20296
3/ Next is @LouisaPicco talking about implementation of prescription monitoring with #pharmacists. Alerts seem to really drive responses (over other clinical risk factors).. are automatic alerts replacing clinical judgement? Conclusion: PDMP should not replace clinical decisions

PSA: #Pharmacists are doing everything possible to accommodate ppl with the vaccinations. They get a limited supply of mRNA vaccines (100/wk of Moderna & 150/wk of Pfìzer) & cannot meet demand without more supply from govt. Pharmacies get about 12% of overall prov supply /1
#Pharmacists, like the public, are dealing with constant changes in eligibility criteria & managing ⬆️ in demand without corresponding ⬆️ in supply. Please be patient & understanding. Pharmacy can do more vaccinations with more supply & want to continue stepping up to help. /2
Use online booking of a pharmacy & visit: Ontario.ca/pharmacycovidv… to find a participating #pharmacy. Starting Mon you can get a 2nd dose of AZ-AZ or AZ-PorM at 8 wks & many ppl qualify for an mRNA-mRNA at the 4 wk mark. Guidance is changing as more data becomes available. /3

Every era has its prisoners.

Ours, the children in poverty, like caged Canaries
and Coal Miners.

The news last week refreshed the betrayal of poverty hanging over the lives of so many.

Including my own memories from my early teens.

@MarcusRashford
When I can’t place those inchoate feelings, I open my kitchen cupboards.

I witness some effects of hoarding tin cans like tiny soldiers.

Standing straight and facing forward.

A sigh of relief.

This story belongs to many.

Warping back to those bare walls in a soup kitchen, lifeless conversations, long stares and whispers.

It’s not homelessness, but it’s not comfortable living.

You live penny to penny with half-a-foot outside your door.

How #Pharmacists Can Manage Stress:
Here are some specific tips to overcome stress:
•When faced with stress at work, remind yourself why you do what you do.

•Take a walk in nature; if you can't physically do that, looking at pictures of nature can also reduce stress. Image
•Think about people you love.

•Write out a daily gratitude diary.

The Role of #Pharmacists during the Covid-19 Pandemic

1. Pharmacists where the most accessible health care professionals till date.
Infact, we're always the most accessible health care providers.

2. Minor to moderate Ailment Consultations.

3. During the pandemic, community Pharmacists monitored & managed more patients with chronic diseases especially those that can't gain access their hospitals due to the distance & also bcos of strict hospital practice before attending to patients.

2/cont...
They also ensure that chronic diseases medication where available & renewable.

4. Rendering vital information & communication about Covid-19 to clients coming to the pharmacy and Clarifying misconceptions about Covid-19.

Shared with permission.
The year: 2011. A young #Pharmacist, career-focussed, is part of a thriving business. She stands on her own two feet.

The encouragement & support from her parents is all she needs. They've always supported her. Nothing can shake her resolve. Can it?
1/
One Saturday morning she rushes down the stairs to get ready for work.

The sound hits her first.

It’s guttural. Choking. Someone can’t breathe.

She’s bleary-eyed from the long workdays, 6 days a week.

She’s not complaining. It’s necessary

2/
She steps into the bathroom & that’s where her brain tries to correlate the image with sounds.

‘Is she gargling? Is she choking?

What is her mum drinking out of a 2-litre bottle at 5am?

Why is the mouth frothy?

No answers avail themselves.

I know the point at which the caller broke down and cried.

I was there, and I heard it all.

It was during my second call, to conclude on a grim possibility of Methotrexate overdose in a very sick child.

Multiple co-morbidities.

1/
Its 7.45pm - I'm due to leave at 8pm. I hope.
It’s never happened of course.

I feel a little mentally drained, I sip my cold coffee and wince.

Must get that thermal mug I keep promising myself.

2/
Case open, I read scant notes, I will realise later why.
The case came through with some haste.

I start my call.

The caller: a father.

I start to hear that "whoosh" sound in my ears.

Fight and flight response. I grab my paper pad and pen, start scribbling down notes.

Where sustained transmission of #COVID19 & contact with patient not currently possible/confirmed it’s 🧤apron, fluid resistant mask & eye protection. So, for all face to face contacts.

@NICEComms guidance on differentiating viral #COVID19 pneumonia from bacterial pneumonia. History is key.

Don't offer abx treatment/prevention of pneumonia if #COVID19 likely cause & mild symptoms

If abx needed, 1st choice doxycycline
Do not routinely use dual abx

I dove into the FEC data, and it's pretty clear:

Grassroots health professional donors far prefer Sanders and Warren to Biden and Buttigieg. 1/
For doctors, donations went mostly to Warren and Sanders, with Sanders slightly receiving more.

Buttigieg received a substantial portion.

Biden received very little.

#MedTwitter #MedStudentTwitter
@darakass @DrDooleyMD @AbdulElSayed @DrSriram @DoctorsforPete @Docs_4_Bernie To me this corroborates the polls which show that while medical trade groups/guilds/professional societies might not support policies like #MedicareForAll, grassroots doctors feel differently. 3/

Thread -
Calling all #PCN #Pharmacists – did you know the GHP Contingent Medical Malpractice Cover offers additional personal professional indemnity insurance above and beyond the state backed scheme for General Practice. (1/6)
If your employer has primary cover in place (all NHS and most associated organisations like GP federations will have this) then you can get ‘top up’ cover for just £15/year. (2/6)
And the price stays the same when you become a prescriber and at all levels of your career.
It will also cover you for historic issues, regardless of who you were previously covered by, as long as you did not know about the issue when you changed provider. (3/6)

Yesterday I had two people where incorrect prescriptions caused significant delay to accessing treatment.

I've created threads about this before, but this needs to be addressed regularly

First principle
If you are making a recommendation to your patient, PLEASE write it on a prescription

PLEASE!

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE

PLEASE!!!!

I don't want to hear a person say to me "the doctor said you don't need a prescription for this"

Yes, yes you do.

doctors misunderstand scheduling regularly, but that's not even the biggest issue (yet it's a big issue!!!)
