Please take some time to review this article, Nurses’ attitudes and behaviors on patient medication education., published in Pharmacy Practice, 2017. We would like you to focus on Abstract, Discussion and Conclusion sections.

In a hospital setting, patient education would be carried out through multidisciplinary healthcare professionals. Among these, nurses would be the most closed healthcare providers to patients. In this article, a small group of nurses had been surveyed. You might find some limitations while nurses preform patient education especially in medication. It might due to their massive workloads and knowledge gaps. This should help you see the importance of pharmacist’ participation in patient medication education.

As you go through this article, please think about the following: if we see a patient as a whole, what should we provide in terms of patient education? How can we improve the communication among healthcare professionals for better patient education? Should pharmacists put more emphasis on training nurses to educate patients? Please share with us your idea about this topic.
