Health Literacy Patient Interaction

1.       Interaction to occur during inpatient stay.  Having the patient interaction at discharge may delay discharge time and may also be a too rushed environment for this type of interaction.

2.       Patients to be identified by ward/unit pharmacist and meet the following criteria:

a.       Takes regular medicines prior to admission or will be taking regular medicines after this episode of care. 

b.      Manage their own medicines or carer who manages patient’s medicines participates in the interaction. Even if patient managers own medicines, students can invite carers/family members to participate in interaction as appropriate and with patient verbal consent.

c.       Speaks English.   Note translator services will not be available.

d.      Overseas visitors can be included but students need to know the patients can’t use the NPS app (as no Medicare number).

3.       First interaction by each student to be observed by lead supervising pharmacist, and form reviewed by lead supervising pharmacist prior to handing to patient.  Lead supervising pharmacist will decide supervision requirements for subsequent interactions.

4.       Students to work in pairs – one to interview and the other to transcribe.

5.       Use a blank, example medication list template from Monash Health – 8 x laminated copies for student use - Monash Health will arrange and supply these.

6.       After activity completed, students to provide a copy of form to patient and explain to patient that the ward/unit pharmacist will try to answer their questions during the inpatient stay (may not necessarily be that day).  If ward/unit pharmacists do not answer fully (which is possible e.g. pharmacist does not have time or patient is discharged on weekend etc.), then the patient copy can be taken to their outside health professionals.

7.       Ward/unit pharmacist will try to answer patient questions.  If answered that day, students will be provided with the opportunity to shadow the pharmacist as they answer the questions.  Students will not be answering the patient’s questions.

8.       Number of patients seen per day depends on the patient cohort on the ward/unit. No set target.

9.       During down time, students can investigate the answers to the patient’s questions or complete other self-directed work.  Would be helpful if students could bring their own AMH.

2nd European Faculty Development Workshop: Engaging in New Methods of Teaching and Assessment in Pharmacy Education SAVE THE DATE! 16 – 18th November 2018 in Dubrovnik, Croatia Hosted by ACPE/AACP and supported by EAFP and PharmaExpert

Thanks to all of our fabulous clinical educators who will be hosting second year Monash pharmacy students undertaking a health literacy placement in first semester 2018. Please use this discussion forum to ask questions, share experiences, etc

The files uploaded to this group are the materials we are using to teach this topic in our "residential" curriculum which they will apply in their "experiential" curriculum. The topic will be taught over 2 weeks, starting with Discovery 1 and Workshop 1 followed by Discovery 2 and Workshop 2. Each of these weeks also include an interactive lecture to further explore the discovery material.

In week 3 students will be credentialed to perform the activity illustrated in the video. This is the activity students will be undertaking during their placement time. The rubric, which will be uploaded shortly, provides formative feedback to the students and will be the evidence they need to show you that they are credentialed to perform the activity. They may also have a video of themselves performing the task.

Please let me know if you would like me to assist with staff training sessions. I'm sure you will have many questions, please post them here--you will need to join PharmAcademy and be logged in to participate in the discussions.

Cheers- Kirstie
