    Managing Dyslipidemia: A Tale of Two Guidelines

    On this episode, we discuss the management of dyslipidemia. We start by reviewing some basic pathophysiology. Then, we discuss the evidence-based medications utilized for controlling patients' lipid panels as well as the long-term prevention of cardiovascular events. We also breakdown the 2018 lipid guidelines from the American Heart Association, and contrast them with the 2020 American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists/American College of Endocrinology's lipid guidelines.

    Cultivating Empathy, Compassion, and Self-Confidence During Clinical Rotations

    Cultivating Empathy, Compassion, and Self-Confidence During Clinical Rotations

    On this episode, we are joined by Dr. Sandy Diec, PharmD and Kyle Fischer (PharmD Candidate 2021). Dr. Diec is a clinical professor at Texas A&M College of Pharmacy where she teaches as well as works as an ambulatory care clinical pharmacy specialist. Kyle is a P4 at Texas A&M College of Pharmacy, and he will be receiving his PharmD in May 2021. Dr. Diec is very passionate about helping students (and healthcare professionals in general) cultivate empathy and compassion towards patients that have been entrusted into their care. We discuss how this is applicable to students that are on clinical rotations. We also talk about tactics to grow self-confidence and other ways to ensure you get the most out of rotations. 
    Make sure to check out Kyle's pharmacotherapy infographics available on twitter (@Kfischer_10) and Instagram (@kgfischerx).

Excellent

I’ve been a retail pharmacist for several years and this podcast is such a great refresher for things I don’t see as much and also keeps me up to date on some more recent developments that I hadn’t heard of (I work the night shift alone so this podcast is the main way I stay on top of things since I don’t get much chance to talk to other pharmacists.) thanks for everything and keep them coming please!
