AusPharm news

Priceline Pharmacy AusPharmList
February Post of the month
: 06/03/2006 :

As was the case in January, 5 posts were nominated for the February Post of the month. 2 of these were nominated on the basis that they "opened a novel thread that creates wide discussion" (see judging guidelines). These were Kate Doughty's post of January 25 asking for tips on locuming and Ron Batagol's post of February 6 lamenting the difficulty a consumer had in getting some extemp ear drops made (23 follow up posts for this one).

The winning post however was Peter Crother's post of February 15 that discussed issues of quality control in community pharmacy

Negative entries in DD registers: Poll results : 01/03/2006 :

Thanks to the 305 AusPharmers who voted in our DD register poll. I will resist the temptation to comment on the results as I think the posts in today's (e)news and on AusPharmList over the last few days in response to Irwin's first post cover all the bases neatly.

The question was: "I use negative quantities in my DD register: yes/no/huh?"

The results were as per the table at right.

The RIPAA register : 28/02/2006 :

Many of you will remember the Remote and Isolated Pharmacists Association of Australia, better known as RIPAA. RIPAA was the original advocacy group for rural and remote pharmacy in Australian and was established in 1989. It was to large degree responsible for the improvements in conditions achieved by rural and remote pharmacy owners since that time. These pharmacists have RIPAA to thank for negotiating the original rural pharmacy allowances.

AusPharm student resource page : 27/02/2006 :

Towards the end of last year AusPharm did a little work with our friends at NAPSA and with other industry players with a view to setting up a page on the AusPharm site that might act as a leaping off point for students and others seeking to research aspects of pharmacy in Australia.

Results of counselling poll : 23/02/2006 :

Thanks to the 158 AusPharmers who voted in our current poll. Voting was closed off for this poll early this morning. Exactly 50% of respondents told us that they have trouble finding time to "properly counsel their prescription patients". 19% of people rarely or never have trouble and 31% struggle to find the time "a little". What do we make of these results?

While struggling to find the time "a little" seems to me to reflect "positive" stress, the 50% who battle to find time to counsel properly "always" or " a lot" has got to be a problem. This seems to suggest that half of the people who votes in our poll work under quite stressful circumstances and if these results are indicative of the wider pharmacy workplace, this is indeed a worry!

Quack Busters Project needs some younger folk : 17/02/2006 :

AusPharm has had several offers from members to serve on the Quack Buster's "working group". We are pleased with this but believe there are some gaps in our skill set.

AusPharm is acutely aware that pharmacy industry working groups, committees, councils and the like are very often comprised of the same old same old faces. Succession planning is generally poor. We would very much like to have the services of some younger members of the profession on our Quack Buster "working group".

How many staples are required to hold a repeat to a duplicate to a repeat folder? : 15/02/2006 :

One of our more anally retentive AusPharmers sent me an email recently commenting on the number of staples he had encountered that day on one particular repeat folder. He suggested we run a poll on this. Ever one to please, we've acceded to his request and this poll appears below in today's (e)news. Please tell us what *you* do.

Priceline Pharmacy AusPharmList
2005 Post of the Year
: 31/01/2006 :

AusPharmers put up a creditable effort yesterday in voting for the Priceline Pharmacy AusPharmList 2005 Post of the Year with getting on towards 100 votes recorded. We are not expecting as many votes as we usually get in our polls as reviewing each nomination and choosing a winner does take a little time and effort.

The largest annual event for pharmacy students in Australia, the NAPSA Congress, commences today in Hobart.

AusPharm gets a mention in Wikipedia : 19/01/2006 :

Many AusPharmers will be familiar with Wikipedia, the Web's increasingly popular (but not uniformly accurate) user-maintained encyclopedia.

Wikipedia has a very good entry on "pharmacy". While having a look at this recently AusPharm was delighted to see that we are listed in the links for the pharmacy entry as: "the portal for pharmacists practising in Australia, providing useful links, a discussion list, and feature articles". AusPharm thanks the (unknown) AusPharmer who submitted this information to Wikipedia!

Who can donate their old text books? : 18/01/2006 :

In yesterday's (e)news Anne Todd suggested that Australian pharmacists in general and AusPharmers in particular could play a role in assisting their colleagues in some less well resourced parts of the world to obtain the pharmacy references they lack. She was responding to this article on Medscape. Anne suggested that the first thing to do was to try and gauge the willingness of people to assist by running an AusPharm poll on the topic.

Always eager to please, we have published this poll in today's (e)news and on the AusPharm web site. To cast your vote, click on your selection below.

Thought for the day : 09/01/2006 :

A man in a hot air balloon realised he was lost. He reduced altitude and spotted a woman below. Descending a bit more he shouted, "Excuse me, can you help? I promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago BUT I don't know where I am."

The woman replied, "You're in a hot air balloon, approximately 30 feet above the ground. You are between 40/41 degrees latitude, north, and 59/60 degrees west, longitude."

"You must be a pharmacy pre-registrant", said the balloonist.
