Kindergarten myths: Bev Baxter

Recently was informed by Kindergarten teacher that the TGA do not have a protocol for dealing with spacers so they are considered to be single use ONLY – dispose of after one use – not cleanable.

Although I realise this is nonsense I wonder if is verifiable or if anyone else has come across this.

Also suggested that Seretide could be used as rescue remedy – possibly confused with Symbicort but…..

Bev Baxter PhC, AACPA – an older wiser pharmacist wondering why the AJP have decided to throw the baby, bath and bathwater out all at once, surely you would treat your customers as valued participants in your journey through the life we have!!

I guess the world is changing and technology moves fast! Amazing how Twitter is 10 years old and they have moved their model to try to keep up with FB and they still face challenges and questions are being asked if they can last the next 10 years….

The value add to Auspharmlist will probably be seen over time as I would imagine the valuation must have been based on some growth projections in users/advertisers…. maybe we should all just watch and wait as its only been a few weeks/months…

Agree with your sentiments David.

AJP surely if you were taking something over your have the new forum sorted out from day one or just continue the old format.

Not impressed that I had also just renewed my subscription, pleased however that AJP refunded prorata amount.

I would really just prefer to get value for my money than a refund.

Wondering if it is time to start a competing product?

Sure. That’s not the point. The point is that in this day and age supply of S3 medicines needs to be recorded on patients’ record of care by the pharmacy, such as the dispensing history or perhaps GuildCare. Such record-keeping is especially critical in any pharmacy that has a loyal clientele and is striving to provide continuous care patients (i.e., most of us, but certainly the best of us).

It just isn’t good enough to have multiple practice softwares such as Dispense, STOP, GuildCare, DAA software, NDSS, MedsAdvisor/eRx/ etc., etc., which fragment the record of what we do for our patients and make it impossible to recall and review patients’ care.

The multiplicity of unintegrated practice tools has now become a major barrier to the good practice of pharmacy. It is DUMB DUMB DUMB and it has to STOP STOP STOP (pardon the pun).

That the owners of Project STOP have not yet managed to have it integrated with dispensing software – despite years of calls for it – is plainly not good enough.
