Formulation of Response & Follow Up : Summary

Formulation of Response & Follow Up : Summary
And when we actually feel very confident about all of our fighting. Now we can actually go ahead to provide our results to those requesters. And keep in mind if those requesters are actually asking a verbal response, you can also prize some writtern results or some written information. And if one to have a written response you also need to actually briefly explain those written information and not just go ahead to handing those information. So that’s very important in this part.
You need to have some good writing skill and from all of your information has broken that actually gave you some good way to write down those short noses So the steps are as following, the first of all, in our situation, lots of time, you have a different therapeutic selection and you probably want to present all of those considerations and then you can actually find one that you really recommend this superior viewpoint. Then you can actually stay and from the literature why this treatment as the best one and then also provide those you are not recommended and why is that and what is the weakness but what are their strengths.
Then you want to defense the witness for the selection when you read comments. Then finally iterate the final assessment to us to support on your recommendation. So that’s some steps to help you provide a good verbal over writing information. Then when we provide those informations and that’s are some things we want to remind. First of all communication skill is always important and you may actually look at if you’re a person really understand or they really buying your suggestion. And then why is not and you pop you want to ask if they have any other consideration in their mind and how can you provide answer there really are they need and that communication skill are very important.
And that will actually help our healthcare professionals to help each other in the future and also if that’s for a patient it’s very important for the patient really understand what you are talking about and the other thing as usually when you provide some answers there will be more additional questions later on. So well when you go hand to answer people question and you also need to foresee if they are other additional questions will happen later and you may want to prepare those answers beforehand.
So you don’t need to go back to check again and provide the answer again and so you can actually resolve for all the questions in one time and then also that would be always good to provide your answer with reference. You probably can provide those original data or those papers and help them to actually read those material later on. Then finally we strongly encourage you to follow up the outcome and that means they’re probably not a very much a requirement for your pharmacy director of something. So that’s some issue that you want to help your personal goals.
So if today you provide a recommendation to a health care provider or to a patient and then next time or a few days later you may want to check if they really follow your recommendation if not, why is not? and you can actually open your mind to ask them again and why you… there must be a reason. So then you will gradually you know why people don’t want to accept and do you need to adjust your way to answer question or do you miss any part of clinical important issue and then in this way you can actually do some quality control about yourself.
So then you can follow through if they are really happy and later on if they actually have a more communication with you later on and really happy to ask you question again. Then you want to document your contribution to patient care. It’s always important. If no document that means no work. No work that means no pain. And as nowaday medication therapy manager as such important things that are linked to our reimbursement and pharmacists as a value must be documented. Let’s help our society and also help our our pharmacy professional continuing to go on.
Then so, in conclusion, logical thinking to apply evidence-based medicine to clinical settings there are a few important elements we always need to find the accurate answer and also that’s not only accurate must be unbiased that means you provide balanced answer to those people they really need. we as a process comes together and not just saying all good words and actually avoid those weakness. Do we need to provide those information in a very balanced way. And also the answer must be very specific, specific to the patient is always very important. It needs to be a ready answer that people can actually use right away in the clinical setting.
So now I would like to thank you for your attention and we are ready to complete this session and I hope you enjoy in the session of course and I hope you to listen our course again in the future, thank you.

In this video, Prof. Shawn Chen illustrates the formulation, provision of response, and how to follow up the outcomes. She finally gives a brief summary of this week as well.

To begin with, there are five steps to present the information. Pay attention to the fourth one. Remember to explain why this treatment you chose will be the best, and provide those you do not recommend and the reasons. Elaborate on the weaknesses and strengths of those studies.

Besides, there are some hints, including remembering to support the answer with reliable references.

After providing a recommendation to a healthcare provider or to a patient, you can check if they really follow your recommendation. If not, what is the reason? By doing this, you will gradually know what you need to adjust.

In conclusion, logical thinking to apply evidence-based medicine to clinical settings is important. Instead of just saying all good words and avoiding those weaknesses, we need to provide information in a balanced way.

This is the end of this week.
