Qld Arthritis seminar: Karalyn Huxhagen

On Friday last week a group of accredited and hospital pharmacists attended the Arthritis Qld seminars in Brisbane at Royal Womens. The speakers were excellent, the format was great, catering and access and parking and all those little things worked a treat.

The content and the calibre of the presentations was excellent. If you have a chance to attend any of these presentations please think about it. The price was not high.

The presentation on gout gave food for thought about patient management. These patients need so much work to change their habits and management of all areas of their health not just their food and alcohol intake.

I was particularly miffed at the Professor who had established a private pain clinic and dismissed medication as something the GP could be concerned with. While pain clinics should and need to be muti person teams the PHARMACIST is an integral member of this team. Could have biffed her for her dismissive comments but she was a psychologist so drugs were not her forte. Their team focuses on the psychosocial component of the pain patient management but as we all know there are three circles in that model!!

This was my second attempt at attending hospital CPD in Brisbane in a week and I am so desperate to absorb more of this work so I hope SHPA and PSA will start partnering.. The SHPA lecture on acute pain management at Redcliffe hospital a week earlier was a real gem of a lecture and is now avaialble on their website. If you are a member you will find it to be an excellent presentation with some of the best slides of synaptic cleft interfaces you could ever hope to enjoy over breakfast.

and it wouldn’t be difficult.

We have people here who could set up a newsgroup server in a day.

AJP it’s time to flog your programmers, load them up with Red Bull and quatro espressi and just do it…

In retail pharmacy we don’t make excuses, we deliver. Whatever it takes.

I was on the gold standard, USENET decades ago, likely before your webpage designers were born — it simply worked. Tell them to look it up.

I accessed Usenet via Forte Agent and Free Agent newsgroup readers; heck there is Mozilla, Opers and Windows has its own newsgroup apps.

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!!

Hi Christine

I agree that the wheels are off at the moment but please be patient. Sadly Mark and Tony have moved into their twilight years and while they are still nimble in some areas it is time to cease the 5.00am Auspharm mentoring and posting.

We have all given feedback and I too no longer read the posts as it takes too much time to log in etc. My posts fall off which really peeves me. I need to remember to make a copy before hitting the send button.

I am ssured that it will be cared for and developed. Many at APP voiced their opinion and gave great feedback. Please hang in there and do keep telling AJP what does not work.
