ENGAGING COMMUNITIES FOR HEALTH
By Teoh Cheryh Yun
Day in day out, at the bustling pharmacy dispensing counter, we greet hundreds to thousands of patients and caregivers every day. Screening prescriptions, filling medications or even compound specially prepared medications whenever necessary, and dispensing were all required to be done within the limit of waiting time given by authorities. When patients require further explanation on their medications or any medication-related issues, they were then referred to another pharmacist for patient education session, not to mention instances where intervention is required when errors we detect errors while screening prescriptions.
But how such a routine as an outpatient pharmacist could guarantee career fulfillment and development? It was a big question of mine when I was first posted to a government health clinic 6 years ago. I once thought that working at a health clinic would mean repeating the everyday schedule as it seems to be. Yet I am totally wrong when I ventured into it.
