Community Outreach at Institute on Aging this afternoon. I’m so glad that we helped several patients switch to a better plan under Medicare Part D.
Medicare Part D can be very confusing and many insurance companies aren’t very transparent about it either. But as pharmacists, we can help make sure our patients are in the best plan for them.
If you’re not sure where to start, go to medicare.gov and click on find health and drug plans. Follow the instructions and the system will automatically provides you with several plans. The most important thing is to input all medications the patient currently takes and wishes to take.
Comment below if you have any questions and I may make another post on Medicare Part D if the demand is high.
What is the very first thing we ask for at a pharmacy? Do you have this medicine with you? Yes! But is it really worth it? Are you sure you are asking the right question to the right man? Most of us don't even bother that the person giving us our prescribed medicines is even a qualified pharmacist or not! Pharmacist is equally important like our doctors. Don't worry we are here with our highly qualified and registered pharmacist to offer you the right medicine anytime!

So, this is what I do as an intern in Manipal Hospital - Prescription Audit. I have made the monitor a bit blurry to protect patient details.
Prescription Audit is a vital part of patient care. Pharmacists work to identify the Medication Errors related to use of drugs in patients and provide suggestions for improvement to other Health Care Professionals.
Drug Interactions and Adverse Drug Reactions are two of the many errors that can be caught through audit.
In order to prevent these errors, it is imperative that they be first detected systematically. Many prospective and retrospective methods can be used to detect and prevent the medication errors.

Another 9-6 day at Walgreens Pharmacy with 30+ flu shots. We are in flu season so have you gotten your vaccine yet?
As an intern, I get asked frequently about why get vaccinated. Well, there are many reasons. But today I want to share some data that has convinced some of my patients who were hesitant about getting a shot to actually gettibg one.
The CDC conducts surveillance for flu-related hospitalization by collaboration with several other programs and hospitals geographically distributed throughout the US. During 2017-2018, CDC estimates influenza-associated deaths in the US to be 79,000. Shocking right? So go to your pharmacy and get protected NOW! 💪💪
"Il Succo di Mirtilli"
Il succo di mirtilli è una bevanda dissetante ed energizzante come poche altre. I benefici derivanti da un' assunzione costante di mirtilli sono veramente numerosi, tanto che sin dall'antichità frutti e foglie venivano usati con vari scopi, non solo in cucina, ma anche in medicina e in erboristeria.
I mirtilli si possono consumare ovunque ci troviamo, grazie alla praticità dei mirtilli essiccati, ma impariamo i vantaggi ... bevendoli.
Le proprietà del succo del di mirtillo sono notevoli: i benefici possono essere ricondotti principalmente alle funzioni antisettiche e antiossidanti delle bacche.
Ma c'è differenza tra mirtilli rossi o neri?
Il succo di bacche rosse ha un quantitativo maggiore (rispetto al nero) di fibre, potassio e calcio. Molto ricco di vitamina C! E' quello che ha la maggior capacità di agire da battericida e quindi a lui si deve soprattutto l'effetto positivo sulle infezioni delle vie urinarie.
Il succo di bacche nere è particolarmente ricco di vitamina C e vitamina A. L'azione positiva in questo caso garantisce un miglioramento della funzionalità del sistema
cardio-vascolare e di riflesso anche un generico benessere per gli occhi. E' costituito fondamentalmente da antiossidanti, molto utili alla riduzione dei radicali liberi e importanti per le funzioni cognitive.
Insomma, un vero e proprio Elisir!

Hi, my name is Lara and I am currently doing my PharmD internship at Manipal Hospital, Bangalore.
I have decided to make this account in order to create awareness of the different outcomes of drugs, both good and bad.
This has become an interest of mine ever since I've learnt how easily a person would take drugs at the occurrence of the slightest symptoms without consulting their doctors first.
Furthermore, I am building up my career and will be facing exams soon, so, I hope this helps me too.

This topic is important for all patients, and especially for patients with long-term illnesses such as 𝐝𝐢𝐚𝐛𝐞𝐭𝐞𝐬, 𝐡𝐞𝐚𝐫𝐭 𝐝𝐢𝐬𝐞𝐚𝐬𝐞, 𝐨𝐫 𝐡𝐲𝐩𝐞𝐫𝐭𝐞𝐧𝐬𝐢𝐨𝐧 (𝐡𝐢𝐠𝐡 𝐛𝐥𝐨𝐨𝐝 𝐩𝐫𝐞𝐬𝐬𝐮𝐫𝐞). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The challenge here is that approximately 50% of patients with these kinds of long term illnesses DO NOT take medications as prescribed. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
There are many obstacles to taking medication everyday such as COST ($$$), not understanding what the medication does, side effects, and timing of the dose!
•Keep a list of all your medications, including over-the-counter ones. Use a small notebook or a smartphone to track all changes.
•Take your meds at the same time every day. Those times might coincide with your morning coffee or meals, after brushing your teeth or a shower, or at bedtime.
•Leave yourself notes to help you remember. Post-it Notes on your bathroom mirror or nightstand work great.
•Use a pillbox with the days of the week
•Keep a calendar to write down dose and when refills are due. If you're running low on medication contact your health provider or pharmacist to make sure you don't miss a dose!
•Set an alarm to remind you to take your pills
•Turn your bottle upside down after you take your pills
•Ask your pharmacist if they sell "reminder tops". These are caps with reminder alarms for your medications.

I cibi amici delle donne Over 40
Cosa mangiare dopo i 40 per mantenerci belle e sane?
•Succo di Pomodoro
Bere succo di Pomodoro aiuta a tenere sotto controllo il colesterolo, in più, pare che riduca i sintomi tipici della menopausa come vampate e irritabilità.
Prezioso alimento in età "over" è il Tofu ricavato dal latte di soia. La soia contiene fitoestrogeni, sostanze simili agli ormoni femminili, molto utili per regolare l'equilibrio ormonale.
•Semi di Lino e Bacche di Goji
Anche loro ricchi di fitoestrogeni, aiutano ad attenuare le vampate.
Gli alimenti ricchi di calcio sono fondamentali per prevenire e combattere l' osteoporosi. Ne costituiscono una buona fonte i cibi come formaggi, latte e yogurt, ma anche la rucola, il cavolo, i broccoli, i fagiolini, noci e nocciole.
Per mantenere attivo e giovane il cervello, invece, fai il pieno di Omega3. Sono contenuti in particolare nel salmone, trote e pesce spada, ma anche nelle carni bianche.
Contribuiscono inoltre a stabilizzare il tono dell'umore.🌸

When you get to work and BREAKFAST is served...you know it’s going to be a good day!!!
Your physician targets are using social media consistently. Is your medical device company taking advantage of this massive opportunity? We can help.
from Dr. Daniel Choi, Spine Surgeon, on Instagram: “I. Will. Not. Fail. 🔥
Not every surgery is smooth sailing. There can be hiccups. An unexpected finding. An intraoperative complication. Every surgeon can attest to this.
Sometimes it can feel like your back is to the wall. Like wow, how am I going to maneuver out of this one?
I. Will. Not. Fail. I’m NOT letting this patient down. 🔥
Refusal to accept failure was an instinct probably implanted into me by my 🇰🇷 tiger mom and cultivated by mentors and teachers who pushed me to my limits. When the going gets tough...well, it’s simple, I’ve got to figure it out....whatever it takes.
What do you say to yourself when your back is up against the wall??”
DID YOU KNOW: Cracking open a book before you go to bed could help combat insomnia?
"A 2009 study from researchers at University of Sussex showed that six minutes of reading reduces stress by 68% (more relaxing than either music or a cup of tea), thus clearing the mind and readying the body for sleep."
