It’s my last day here at mdBriefCase already. During my 5 weeks, I’ve worked on various projects that helped me develop my writing and presentation skills.

I wanted to share my experience about these projects to provide some insight and suggestions for future students.

My responsibilities
Suggestions for future students
eCME critical appraisal
·         Critically appraise “Pharmacists Improving Treatment Adherence & Patient Outcomes in AD”
·         Present and discuss finding to team members through 20 minute PowerPoint presentation
·         Be critical. Don’t be afraid to point out things you dislike
·         Become an expert on the topic yourself

·         Write an eNewsletter that would be distributed to many pharmacists across Canada
·         See “4 Simple Steps to Deprescribe Benzodiazepines
·         This is not an essay!
·         Tell a story that pharmacists can relate to in order to make an impact
MedSchoolForYou Q&A
·         Develop answers to frequently asked questions on a medical topic of choice
·         Customize information to patients
·         See “When Every Breath Counts – Asthma in Children

·         Keep the language simple
·         Think about what the patients are interested in (Probably not pharmacokinetics of drugs)

·         Contribute to the pharmacy student blog
·         Write about my experiences and insights on pharmacy practice and healthcare
·         Be creative, funny, quirky
·         Share YOUR thoughts

Although my rotation with rxBriefcase has come to an end, I know that rxBriefcase will continue to be a valuable asset through my journey of life-long learning. 

I would like to thank everyone at mdBriefcase for all the opportunities I’ve been given. The writing support and freedom of expression I received here was phenomenal. I’m sure future students would thoroughly enjoy this rotation as much as I did.
