A Rare Talent
It’s a rare talent these days – a breadth of pharmaceutical expertise that covers the entire medication process from prescribing, dispensing and administration of medications, to the monitoring of their effects. An expert with experience in understanding what can go wrong throughout all of these steps
Anything to do with the medication process, from start to finish. Was the right medication prescribed/dispensed? What about other conditions the patient has? At the right dose? What are the side effects? Were these recognised? What about other interacting drugs? Was the medication effective? Was it harmful? What harms were caused? What are the lasting effects of any errors made?
In the age of the single subject specialist it’s a decisive talent too – the difference between a clinical negligence litigation success or failure. As medical specialities become narrower and narrower, you need an expert who understands the whole patient and the effects of medication on them as such.
A hard to rival talent that you’ll find difficult to source elsewhere.
Maybe that’s why so many medico-legal litigation solicitors are now turning to me for my advice. Or why I’m retained by high street pharmacy retailers to act in their defence.I’ve spoken at national and international multi-disciplinary healthcare events on the subject of medication errors.
