My goals for psychiatry rotation


Psychiatry is one of my elective rotations. I have always been interested in this area and I am glad I got an opportunity to learn about it for four weeks and see real patients vs. just learning about it in class. Below are my objectives for the rotation:

1. Interpret and document clozapine level for at least 1 patient

2. Understand the pharmacokinetics and dosing of Valproic acid and lithium

3. Conduct UKU Side effect rating scale, DAI (Drug Attitude Inventory) and AIMS (Abnormal Involuntary Movement Scale) assessment for at least 3 patients

4. Educate at least two patients about their medications




About rajwantminhas

I just finished my pharmacy degree at UBC. I am excited to be part of Lower Mainland Pharmacy Services. My goal is to get exposed to different kinds of disease states, medications and become better at applying my knowledge. Patient interaction is another aspect that I am going to strive to get better at. I am looking forward to this intense year and learning tonnes!
