Interprofessional Fun!

Hello readers,

First, I’d like to apologize for my long absence. Despite it being a quiet semester, time still seems to get away from me (perhaps I’m enjoying having time to be lazy?!) Anywho….

During second year, as part of our lab course we are required to take part in an inter-professional activity at St. Scholastica. Basically, a group of nursing, pharmacy, medicine, and social work students get together, they have a paid actor/actress come in and enact a scenario and one-by-one, you get to go into the room, talk to the patient (everybody else watches the interaction through a one-sided mirror), and at the end you come together to develop a care plan.

I had my group last Friday, and without giving out details of the case (for those who have yet to go), I will just say that it was SOOOOO MUCH FUN!!! It was really interesting to see what things that other professions were focused on, where we differed on our questions, things that were the same, things that we thought others would ask but only pharmacy asked about.

It was a really great opportunity for us to get together and work with other health professionals, an opportunity that we don’t often get through classes. With so many changes in the profession of pharmacy, it was a really motivating experience for us to bring vital services to the care team. It makes me more excited to be in pharmacy school in such a dynamic period.

In other news, the snow is starting to melt. Added excitement to my life. This time next week, I’ll be on spring break. Additional excitement. APhA in Orland shortly following spring break.. EXCITEMENT!!!

That is all. Happy Days!

    Hey Ajay! that’s so awesome that you’re able to interact with other professionals and listen to their perspectives on taking care of the patient! It makes me even more excited to apply to Minnesota 🙂 Have fun in Orlando at the ApHA conference! 😀
