In today’s show we review important interactions of commonly prescribed medications with Dr Paul Ryan,a dual-trained pharmacist and GP, and founder of pharmabuddy.ie: https://www.pharmabuddy.ie/
Paul also runs regular education courses in therapeutics for healthcare professionals including GPs and pharmacists under the moniker Prescription Revision:
Paul and I met recently and discussed a number of practical therapeutics and prescribing topics of relevance to practicing GPs and pharmacists alike. Paul covered a lot of ground, so I’m going to break our conversation into a number of episodes, beginning with today’s focus on interactions between commonly-prescribed medications. If you’ve been listening to our ongoing series on therapeutics with the NMIC, you’ll notice some nice overlap with topics covered by Mary and Mary Jo, reinforcing the importance of keeping abreast with best practice in prescribing.
