Mercifully, the seminar became worth-while. Not to mention, I also enjoyed the company of dear colleagues.
The subject focused mainly on professional relations involving doctors, nurses and pharmacists. I had to agree, having an experience in working with a doctor. Sometimes, it is really difficult to tell them when they have the wrong idea on some things. Doctors are like bosses. It is so awkward to made an inquiry when they wrote an instruction of taking a cotrimoxazole 4 times a day when they should have written it twice a day only. It could be a common mistake but sometimes doctors have their own reasons in giving a medicine based on the severity of the disease. They could have written an Rx right... or wrong.
Patients would believe physicians more instead of listening to pharmacists or nurses. Naturally,a patient's safety is in their hands.
The thing is (at least for me and my colleagues coz most people consider us as shy lol) we must be assertive in telling a doctor or a fellow health professional on a certain health care matter.This may offend them or probably will not matter at all ,but we must remember that the patient's health is always at stake.
