To be frank, I wasn't sure if I wanted to create a blog when I thought of developing and offering a medication review service. But the more I thought this out, the more it became evident that there is a real need to communicate current and informative dialogue about medication, particularly to those who are older adults and to those of us who are younger in caregiving roles.
My objective with this blog is to disseminate credible and useful information about medication. Not drug facts, that information is available on medical sites such as UptoDate, Drug.com and WebMD. More real world information based on my experience as a pharmacist. More information related to the rationale for this website. To help readers make better informed decisions about the medications they are taking. To help readers better understand why they are taking certain medications. To help readers better manage their medications and ultimately to provide better health outcomes.
I hope you enjoy the Polypharmacist blog. But a blog is better when it gets comments.
I hope to hear from you. Often.
