Re: AJP daily Vs Auspharm: David Weston

Dear AJP Daily readers,

Many thanks for the significant amount of feedback provided to the Australian Pharmaceutical Publishing Company (APPCo) about AJP Daily including how it compares to AusPharm’s former daily AusPharm(e)news.

Feedback has been mixed – we’ve had lots of positive comments about AJP Daily but also some negative comments about how it differs from the AusPharm(e)news – in particular with regard to the fact that the AusPharmList forum is not as accessible as it used to be.

We are certainly aware of this and are working hard to get the new version of the Forum ready. Unfortunately, technical issues prevented us from having this ready for the March 1 handover of AusPharm to APPCo. However, the new Forum is now in testing and we expect to have it operational soon.

In the context of how AusPharm content, including its CPD offer, is to be incorporated into the AJP Daily and the AJP website, we have also not yet finalised work on how this can best be done. However, we are making progress and will announce progress as it occurs.

One issue about which we have received plenty of feedback is the likely disappearance of the AusPharmacist web page, set as home page for many pharmacy computers. We are working on a new version of this but are still considering how best to incorporate it into the AJP website.

Please be assured we are working hard, with former AusPharm editor Mark Dunn’s assistance, to build an interactive and informative site incorporating the best features from AusPharm into the AJP website which has been engaging AJP readers since its launch in March last year.

Kind regards

David Weston

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…

It is all very well to say ‘wait and see’, but as mentioned, listers will vote with their feet. I already don’t check daily like I was. I have hunted it out maybe once a week, disappointed when I find I have not actually missed anything much at all!!

I too thank David from AJP for the refund of member fees, appreciated, but yes, I would have preferred value for my money paid.

The personal input by Mark and Tony cannot be discounted, that was what made it such a great forum and kept things ticking over.

Progress it may be, but doesn’t mean we have to like it!! Wish I was smart enough to start up a new forum web page… maybe we should start a Facebook page. Could be a closed group where only accepted members can see and read posts and comments. 🙂

Re: Kindergarten myths: David Haworth

Bev Baxter wrote:

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…..

I don’t know any Kindi teachers but I am sure Auslisters do and can ask around for you Bev.

Perhaps this particular teacher came by her profession after transitioning through nursing?

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.

I agree full STOP.  And if the mooted and trialled opiod/codeine tracker fails to inegrate as well……..

The electronic DD book manages to do it OK at least with the major dispense software supplies.

Start with Fred and work backwards I say.

I could not agree more Peter. Ridiculous when you consider the progress in IT in recent years. Surely some tech. genius somewhere could sort this out!
