58 Introduction to the Patient Care Laboratory Sequence Mikael Jones, PharmD, BCPS Clinical Associate Professor Department of Pharmacy Practice and Science

59 Goal of the Patient Care Laboratory A 6-course laboratory sequence (PPS 919 – 969) designed to assist you in developing the skills needed to fulfill the professional and technical responsibilities associated with the practice of pharmacy – Provide patient care – Oversee the medication-use system – Promote health improvement, wellness and disease prevention

60 Goal of the Patient Care Laboratory By the end of the 6-course laboratory sequence, you will have the skills and knowledge to provide patient-centered care in a manner consistent with the Department of Pharmacy Practice and Science’s “Philosophy of Practice”

61 The Philosophy of Practice The pharmacist: – assumes a defined responsibility for the patients under his/her direct care – accepts responsibility for his/her patients need for expertise in reducing individual medication-related morbidity and mortality, and assumes overall responsibility for patient care in collaboration with other health care professionals – addresses all of his/her patients’ medication-related needs using a patient-centered approach – approaches each individual patient in such a way as to establish a caring therapeutic one-on-one relationship

62 Example PCL Activities Direct Patient Care – Interview and counseling – Physical Assessment – Immunization – Laboratory value Interpretation Sterile and non-sterile product compounding Professional Communication – Drug information requests – Documentation of Care – Interacting with other healthcare providers Prescription/order assessment and dispensing

63 Key Laboratory Policies Professionalism Professional Dress Attendance/Punctuality

64 Professionalism Our expectations of you – Be on time – Be prepared – Be respectful – Meet deadlines – Take responsibility for your learning and your behavior – Learn for participation in a life-long career, not to pass a test!

65 Professionalism Our commitment to you – Provide the highest quality educational experience – Work with you to assist your learning – Be respectful of you

66 Professional Dress Why is it important? – You are entering a profession – You will come in contact with patients and other professionals – When you look professional, your behavior is more likely to be professional

67 Professional Dress Students will maintain a clean, neat appearance at all times Avoid extremes in hairstyles, cosmetics and jewelry Earrings are permitted Nose rings, eyebrow rings and other visible piercings are not permitted in lab A professor may set forth additional standards of attire in his or her syllabus If a faculty member deems a student's attire inappropriate, according to established policy, the student will be notified privately outside of class and asked to correct the problem

68 Professional Dress White lab coat must be worn during all lab activities Additional requirements include dress shirts and ties, sweaters or turtlenecks for men and appropriate dress clothes for women Jeans and open-toe shoes may not be worn in the lab Some laboratory activities may require the removal of jewelry, nail polish and excessively long fingernails

69 Attendance/Punctuality Important component of professionalism – Better to learn now than later when entering the workforce! Students are expected to arrive on time for all lab activities Attendance at all lab activities is mandatory and non-negotiable

70 Summer Assignments – Math Why are they necessary? – To assist you in achieving success in the PY1 year – Pharmacy calculations is an integral part of PPS 919 – Patient Care Laboratory I – Reviewing basic math skills will prepare you for PY1 calculations and improve your math background

You will be required to complete additional remedial work. – Do not rely on remediation as a way to “pass”, it will be more difficult to prepare for the assessment while taking a full course load
