Just the Right Dose – Helping people understand their prescription drugs

dancontemporary.com – Prescription drugs are an important part of life for millions of people. Some drugs are literally lifesaving, while others make life more comfortable. But these medications have become so commonplace and easily available that they might not be taken as seriously as they should be. And that is very dangerous.

When I began working as a nurse, I was often surprised at how little some of my patients knew about their prescription drugs. When taking a nursing history (an intake interview of sorts), we would ask about what drugs the patients took at home, how they took them, and so on. So many patients would say something like, “oh, I take that little white pill for my diabetes – well, just a half of one really because I don’t need to take the full one all the time.” Other patients would bring in their medicine bottles, but with several prescriptions in one bottle, all mixed up. Sometimes, I would be handed bottles of expired drugs. I was even told a few times to “look at my records,” when I asked about prescriptions.

It wasn’t unusual for some of my patients to be there because they had not taken their drugs properly. Often, it was that they didn’t take their medications as frequently as they should have, but others took too many pills or didn’t follow the instructions. Some combined medicines that shouldn’t have been combined, others took pills on an empty stomach rather than with food, causing damage. The stories were endless.

Why did so many people not know anything about their pills? Some of it goes back to “doctor knows best,” and not feeling they needed to question their prescriptions. And I believe that part of it goes back to just not realizing how important this information and knowledge is.

Last month, I wrote a blog post about prescription drug use in North America and the errors that occur because patients don’t understand their medicines properly (Over 200 Billion Dollars For Prescription Meds in U.S. Alone). I found that information as I was doing research for my new book, Just the Right Dose: Your Smart Guide to Prescription Drugs & How to Take Them Safely.

The book, now available at Amazon and Kobo, covers topics such as how to read a prescription (What do those abbreviations really mean?), how to take or give medicines – including tips for people who have trouble swallowing pills, why certain pills should never be broken or crushed, why over-the-counter drugs should be used as carefully as prescription drugs, and more.

Who should read this book? Anyone who takes prescription drugs and anyone who gives them to someone else – such as a parent who has to give medicines to a child, or a family caregiver, looking after a parent or sibling.

How I Make My Homemade Bone Broth

dancontemporary.com

It was time to make some bone broth again.  So, I figured I’d make a video for you on how I do it. This way you can have my step-by-step instructions when you are ready to make yours.

I love bone broth for a million reasons- and everyone in my family drinks it, including the baby.  It’s an all-mighty health elixir that I recommend you consume 4 ounces of a few times each week. It will help improve digestion, boost your immune system, amp up collagen production in your skin, help you sleep better, balance your hormones and bring you back to health after a bad cold.   
How I make it at home is a little different than how some of the recipes tell you to do it.  I actually keep mine as a chicken soup instead of separating out the broth.  It’s just easier that way for my life.
Have a fantastic day!!

Why did the Robin Williams news hit so many so hard?

dancontemporary.com – We hear of celebrity deaths frequently. Old favourites die of old age, new favourites may die of drug overdoses, illness, or in accidents. There are also some suicides. The news of their death makes the rounds, now much more quickly than ever because of the Internet. We see retrospectives of their work, people comment on beloved scenes or events, and then we move on.

But yesterday, the Internet exploded with the news of the death of comedian and actor Robin Williams. From the first moment I saw the news on my sister’s Facebook page to just before I began writing this, my own FB and Twitter feeds were overwhelmed with posts about his death, a suspected suicide. Why is it that Williams brought out such a reaction? Why are people quite literally in tears at the news? While I can’t claim to know the answers, I have my theories, brought about by my own experience with depression.

For many people who have or have had depression, there is that knowledge that it may become too much to bear, that you may not be able to take it any more. Some of us have also lost a loved one to suicide, which makes that feeling even worse. And when a person as out there as Williams was can’t take it any more, it’s scary. It makes some of us feel more vulnerable, more exposed, more “that could have been me.”

There is also the shock that if someone with his resources, with his support systems – if he can’t make it, how can the average person? From all the reports I’ve read and listened to since last night, Williams was a kind, giving, gentle person who went out of his way to help others. And if he couldn’t feel that the help was enough for him, what does that mean to the rest of us? There is also the acknowledgment of the pain he must have been feeling because many of us can identify and remember how horrible it was. To know that someone else felt that way – it is heartbreaking.

And then there is the added stigma of mental illness, of discussing it, of admitting it, of putting it out there for others to see. Depression, anxiety, bipolar, schizophrenia – those are all words that make many people too uncomfortable. We hear of violent crimes and if there is any hint of a past with mental illness, it is often mentioned in media reports. It’s even part of our language, that someone must be crazy, mental, schizophrenic, or manic if he or she does something outside what we perceive to be normal. Who would want to admit to an illness that is connected to only bad things?

So my biggest theory is that Williams’s death hit too close to home to many and it opened up a conversation that many people are afraid to have. Williams graced us with his humour and his talent ,and seemed to have it all. Yet he didn’t. He missed something incredibly important – good mental health. It reminds us that we are all vulnerable.

Here in Quebec, as in other jurisdictions, we’ve had many media campaigns about understanding depression, but it’s hard to tell if they’ve been effective. Right now, how to ask for help and numbers to call are all over social media. People are saying that they hope that his death will begin a conversation about mental health, depression in particular. But is this effective? Yes, right now there’s a groundswell of support for people who may be suffering, but will this continue? Or does this become just another blip on the radar – not unlike the big uproar over Corey Monteith’s death, or Philip Seymour Hoffman’s death from overdose? The drug issue was everywhere then – but it drifted away very quickly.

The Williams experience – watching his sometimes over-the-top manic comedy could be uncomfortable sometimes. There’s no doubt that Robin Williams was a comic genius. This morning, a Montreal radio host was talking about a show Williams did here that started with a 20-minute piece on our city. This wasn’t a “I love [insert name of city] and I’m glad to be here” piece. It was one where he’d obviously done his homework and he knew where to jab for a good laugh. But other times, his comedy seemed manic, like he had to keep going to get a laugh or else he wouldn’t know what to do. I don’t know if that was the case, but it was a feeling I got sometimes, and those times it made me uncomfortable. Maybe it hit too close to home – who knows?

And yet, he was also a wonderful dramatic actor. He could set aside that comedic aspect and really pull you into a movie, making you believe in the character he portrayed. His drama had an edge to it that I couldn’t quite place. I preferred his dramatic roles over his comedic ones, but even in the comedies, something else came through.

He will be missed. There will be more tributes. The next Academy Awards presentation will honour him. He’ll be remembered when we see the movies on Netflix or where ever else we watch them. But will we have changed how we see depression? Sadly, I don’t think so.

Over 200 Billion Dollars For Prescription Meds in U.S. Alone

dancontemporary.com – Wow. Just wow.

I’m doing some research this morning for a book I’m working on – about prescription medications. I decided to do a search for how much money Canadians and Americans spent on prescription drugs in the course of one year. The numbers blew me away.

According to the Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation, in 2013, Americans spent $ 235,447,332,092 on prescription medications – that’s over 200 billion dollars. Canadians, with a much smaller population than in the U.S., spent over 2.2 billion dollars, according to the Canadian Generic Pharmaceutical Association (CGPA).

The issue with so many prescription medications given to so many people is that there are some cases where the medicines may cause more problems than they solve. This could be due to the medicines not being appropriate for the particular patient or the patients may be taking them incorrectly – a major problem in itself.

For prescription medicines to be taken properly, the patients or their caregivers have to understand how to take/give the drug, when to take/give it, what it’s supposed to do, and when to stop taking/giving it. Unfortunately, this isn’t always as easy as it seems.

A study published in 2009 in the Journal of General Internal Medicine looked at prescription drug use and patient errors. The authors wrote:

“Physicians may assume patients can interpret prescription drug label instructions, yet four out of five patients (79%) in this study misinterpreted one or more of the ten common prescription label instructions they encountered.”

For the study, 359 adults (average age 49 years) were asked to look at 10 prescription medicine labels and interpret them. According to the researchers:

“Seventy-eight percent of patients misunderstood one or more instructions, with 37% misunderstanding a minimum of three labels.”

When I was working clinically as a nurse, I often advised patients, and I now advise family and friends to always double check their prescriptions with their pharmacist. Pharmacists are front-line healthcare professionals and they are often the easiest person to get hold of for matters like this.

Also, as a nurse, I would (gently!) scold patients who would grab the medications I handed them and just swallow the pills, without looking at them. I used to explain to my patients that they should take a look at what they are receiving and ask questions if the pills don’t look like the ones that they normally take. There may be a perfectly good reason for that (change in dose, different manufacturer), but there could also be an error. If a patient questioned a medication I gave, I always took it back and double checked it. Most of the time, everything was fine – but there were the odd times when a mistake had been made somewhere along the chain.

So, moral of the story? Know your prescriptions. Know your meds. Ask questions. It’s your right to know what you’re putting in your body.

The oldest working nurse in US gets a surprise birthday party

dancontemporary.com – Many nurses can’t wait until they get to retirement age. Some even leave before that magical age, usually either 60 or 65 years old. But every so often, we hear about a nurse who really doesn’t want to leave the profession. He or she enjoys it and likes going to work, making a difference in the lives of their patients and their families.

What is the oldest age you’ve ever heard of when it comes to a nurse who is still actively working? Seventy? Eighty? How about 90?

On May 8, 2015, Florence “SeeSee” Rigney celebrated her 90th birthday – while she was at work. She is the oldest working nurse in the U.S. today. Rigney works two days per week at Tacoma General Hospital in Washington, where she sets up the operating room. She only gave up direct patient care two years ago, when she was 88.

Watch this video to see the surprise birthday bash Rigney’s coworkers threw for her.

Never Far From My Mind

dancontemporary.com – This blog is an important part of my work identity. I post about interesting health topics and news about nursing issues – and yet sometimes I let it sit untouched for a few months at a time. And I feel guilty when that happens.

Sometimes I wonder why I allow that to happen. It’s not that I don’t think about the blog because I do. Many mornings when I sit at my computer to start my work day (which can be as early as 4:30 a.m., as today), I have the best of intentions to post that day, but it doesn’t happen.

What is the point of a blog like this? When I began it over eight years ago, it was to bring attention to my work, my ability to write about health issues in a friendly and engaging way. It was to build a brand, in a way. And it worked. I developed a great following of readers and I get many on-ofs, people who find this blog because they are looking for a specific issue. Clients have also found me through the blog and I’ve sent potential clients here so they can see my unedited writing style.

A lot has happened since I posted my first piece in 2007. My husband and I sold our big house in the suburbs and we moved back into the city proper. I fell (on moving day!) and dislocated my shoulder, which put me out of commission working clinically. Up until then, I’d still been working part-time for a while as a clinical resource nurse. My full-time freelance career took off, and I’m doing what I love.

I have two “anchor clients,” non-profit organizations for whom I write site content, among other things. And I have many clients who use my services to write for online or print journals, online content, newsletters, and more. Oh, and don’t forget my book, Just the Right Dose! That was a major accomplishment and I’m proud of it.

A side part of my success is I get many emails from nurses who want to get into writing. I love helping them if I can. I don’t mind responding by email, giving them a quick run down of how I got to where I am today, along with some advice. I do have a pet peeve though. Would you believe that the majority of those who write to me to ask for information or advice don’t even bother to acknowledge that I responded? Nothing. It’s not everyone. I’ve gotten some delightful thank you notes back. Sadly though, they are in the minority. A very small minority.

Some of my fellow writers have gotten pretty upset about that lack of courtesy and no longer offer advice when asked. They charge a consulting fee. I understand their point of view; I don’t agree with it, but I understand it. Anyway, that was a little side track rant. 😉

So, what was the point of this post? A sort of welcome back to myself, I think. It’s time to get back on the blogging track. When I see that certain blog posts are read regularly, despite how long ago they were written, and when I get email from people telling me that they learned something important because of one of my posts, I know that this blog is important. It has good information. So here we go again, after another short hiatus, we’re back!

It’s Duh Study Time Again

dancontemporary.com – As a health writer, I read many press releases about articles and studies that have been or will be published in the medical journals. Some of these are quite interesting while others are, quite frankly, head scratchers.

I’ve written before about my idea of Duh Studies – studies that make you think, “Seriously? They had to study that?” This week, I found two great entries for the Duh Study database, two days in a row. I don’t think that has happened before:

“Pain keeps surgery patients awake, extends hospital stay.” Did you know that? That if you have uncontrolled pain, you can’t sleep, which could in turn affect your ability to heal? To be honest, this particular one bothered me because pain is an issue that is often not taken seriously. I wrote about the myths involved in the whole area of pain when I was preparing to give a talk on chronic pain. But when we need studies to tell us that people who have just been cut open, had joints taken out and replaced and then sewn back up have pain? Wow. Just wow.

and

Not all Hispanics are the same when it comes to drinking.” Another doozy. Do I even need to write down what I find offensive about this one?

“A new Michigan State University study indicates that the risk of alcohol abuse and dependence can vary significantly among different subgroups within the population.”

I’m just shaking my head on this one.

Some people may say, “what’s the harm in these?” While there is no actual harm (that I can think of) in these types of studies, I do think that they lower the value of research overall. What kind of impression do these types of findings give to laypeople who read that researchers are spending such valuable time and money in these ways? One can argue that it is important to study obvious things in order to move forward to more intricate details and perhaps this is true. If that is the case then perhaps it’s the media’s fault, for even making news out the findings? I don’t know.

Do you have any Duh Studies to add?
