@cppeengland have just released this great ten case study programme, exploring significant changes in the BNF whilst allowing you to apply your knowledge to practise solidifying your learning
It’s a great way to switch up your learning/ revision technique
I had only been practicing pharmacy for 6 years in this pic. As you can see, it’s before the gray hairs set in. 😆 Comment if you knew me when I had locs. Better yet, Pop Quiz: How many years did I have locs for?

Let's briefly meet abemaciclib: Used in hormone receptor positive, HER 2 negative locally advanced or metastatic breast cancer, in combination with an aromatose inhibitor or fulvestrant. Diarrhoea is one of the most common side effects of abemaciclib. Will cover this in detail in my stories tomorrow.

A few pharmacy students and pre-reg pharmacists have asked me about this and I am just letting you guys know that I haven't forgotten! I am working some long shifts at the moment and will cover my day in my stories soon! If there is anything you'd like to ask, then please let me know. Happy to tailor it around your requests.

Aspirin and other NSAIDs (such as ibuprofen) can precipitate an asthmatic attack in a small number of people with asthma. The attack may be severe and sometimes life-threatening. Patients with nasal polyps are at greater risk.
Cough suppressants such as codeine, pholcodine and dextromethorphan.
Head lice preparations containing alcohol may trigger an asthmatic attack.
Patients prescribed theophylline or aminophylline should avoid taking OTC products containing theophylline such as ChestEze which may cause theophylline toxicity (theophylline has a narrow therapeutic range).
Have you ever wondered what it's like to be a hospital pharmacist? Dr. Scott Micek of @STLCOP walked us through a day in his life. Check it out on the blog (link in bio)!

Hospital Pharmacy problems ——> Nursing problems
I didn’t make these memes so obviously this isn’t a problem unique to my hospital, but it does impact the nursing - pharmacy relationship everywhere.
Working as a decentralized pharmacist on the floors and also holding it down in the main pharmacy I’ve been on both ends of the missing med spectrum. I’ve easily found meds on the floor (in the fridge, storage bins.. where it should be,
etc) and I’ve also been waiting for a stat med on the floor to arrive and watched it never make it there. I’ve even been guilty of looking in the wrong place. Just yesterday I sent a med to the ER three times - the last time hand delivered!
The reasons meds go “missing” are complex and are many times due to human error. Maybe it’s time to re-think how we handle these situations and give each other some grace. As frustrating as the situation can be, it never hurts to be nice!
Ps- Thanks for the pic and inspiration @teregreenup 😀
It feels good to be back in business! 😊
My first week of PhD-ing has been an amazing experience. Finally, I’m in a right place with the right people 💡 and I’ve been overwhelmed by so many of you still wanting to follow my life stories ❤️ thank you every single one of you reading this!! I wouldn’t get where I’m now without your support. My inspiration comes from the positive energy we are sharing! 😊
I’m still a bit shy in the lab, so I think I will wait a bit until I record stories from there, but I will try to share some pics and explain what I’m doing in the near future🔬
Many of you asked me what was I doing for the past week - first two days were mostly organisational. I had health and safety lectures, a lot of paperwork to deal with because I moved to Germany as a foreigner. I also started catching up on what happened in the lab research-wise within the past year (since my summer 2017 internship). I managed to seed and freeze cells, isolate DNA and harvests some cool knockout cells so we can do western blots on Monday. I’m in the deep stage of an impostor syndrome but speaking to everyone about my fears made me realise that everyone there has started PhD at some point of their lives and they had exactly the same uncertainties as I do now. Well.. I hope it will go away with time 🤓
I’m also going to decorate my desk next week so I’m looking for your inspirations 💕 send me your #phddesk / #workdesk pics and I will publish them in my stories 😊
📷 When the conference is about to begin but you have no idea what you’re doing as a young scientist amongst 20.000 hospital pharmacists 😂😂👩🏼🔬 with @dstonkute who is acing through her masters in Norway! 🤞🤞
