Our Practice Newsletter : By Pharmacists For Pharmacists, issue 24 Ziemczonek, Adrian; Tilli, Tiana

Description

Feature Article: Information is key – utilizing health information systems for better patient care. In early 2021, the UBC Pharmacists Clinic gained access to CareConnect, the provincial electronic health record. While work is now underway to get all BC community pharmacists connected, the Clinic team shares its first impressions and experiences with CareConnect, and how it has impacted the way we care for patients. Case Study: To prescribe or not prescribe: that is the question with serotonin toxicity. Drug interactions involving risk of serotonin toxicity are commonly misunderstood. This case study examines the mechanisms involved in serotonin elevations and why toxicity may be an overestimated risk.
