Teaching Plan for Medication compiled by Sue Henderson

The consumer needs to know:

• name of the drug (generic and brand)
• what the drugs is prescribed for (Indications);
• dosage prescribed;
• how many times a day and when the drug should be taken;
• how to take the drug in relation to meals;
• specific adverse effects that are expected with this drug;
• special precautions or activities that are related to the use of this drug, including follow up visits or tests;
• signs and symptoms to report to his or her prescriber;
• dangers of abrupt cessation of the drug;
• special storage information; and
• information on safe disposal of expired medication.

Good practice also requires reminding the consumer to:

• avoid all other medications including OTC (over the counter) and complementary drugs without checking with their prescriber first;
• inform the prescriber of all current medications, medical conditions and allergies;
• keep the drug away from children;
• report to any other health care professionals that he or she is taking the drug;
• inform the prescriber if breastfeeding or pregnant or chance of becoming pregnant while taking the medicine;
• ask the pharmacist if a generic drug is available;
• keep a record of medicines including reason for taking them;
• ask the pharmacist for a dosette box or for medication to be packed into a Webster® pack if taking several medications; and
• read the Consumer Medicine Information (CMI) brochures/leaflets and keep them handy for future reference (see below).

My Autobiography

...Only way to get rid of a blood clot is surgery or blood thinners. Blood thinners shrink the clot down to nothing so that none of the clot gets dislodged and moves. If you are too late and a clot gets dislodged and moves on its own, it goes to 1 of 3 places. Your heart, lungs or your brain. Either place it goes to, you will die instantly. At this point, I’m pregnant, emotional, and by the way she reacted I started crying. We went to the hospital, they confirmed the blood clot and treatment started right away. Two shots daily, once every 12 hours. After that it felt like my pregnancy was dragging on. On top of all that bad news, they tell me it is not recommended to drive or do much physical activity for a month of starting the shots. So, yepp, you got it, there goes college. FLOOP right out the window. At least for now that is. I messaged my professors at the time explaining what had happened and if there was any way I can do all the work from home and of course they all said no. I was too far into my semester to drop the course without it hurting my grades. I had to withdraw with an F in all my courses. Months passed, the clot had thankfully disappeared. I was still considered high risk, the clot could come back at any time. Therefore, the hospital said when it was time, they would induce me. They wanted to make sure I was off blood thinners for 24 hours before going into labor. Finally, the hospital calls me and says we have to schedule my induction time and date.......

...electronics company Sony have been well documented in recent months, but last week's news that Korean rival Samsung has overtaken it in terms of brand value vt/ill only add to the Japanese giant's problems. The Global Brands report, which is published by brand consultancy Interbrand, shows that the value of the Korean brand has shot up by 19 per cent to $14.96bn (£8.6bn) last year moving it to number 20 in the global brands table. Sony, on the other hand, has seen its brand value decline by 16 per cent, to $10.75bn {£6,18bn). It has dropped to 28th in the league table. These changes signify a dramatic reversal in the fortunes of the two companies. A decade ago, Samsung was a low-end electronics company, owning brands such as Wiseview and Yepp, whereas Sony was still seen as a premium brand, responsible for pioneering products such as the Walkman. But following the Asian financial crisis of the mid-1990s, Samsung made significant job cuts and revised its strategy. It decided to focus on its core brand and on two key product areas - mobile phones and televisions. Interbrand global managing director Jan Lindermann says this has allowed the company to develop a coherent strategy that places the brand at the centre of its communications. He adds that this approach has combined with the ability to develop products with the "wow" factor. Samsung benefits, he says, from being able to marry technical know-how with good design. Lindemann says: "Samsung has a very brand-focused approach...

Wanting to move up the value chain, Samsung needed a stronger brand identity. Discarding the weak brands, Samsung put all resources behind the Samsung brand and used quality, design, and innovation to build a more upscale image. In 2001, Samsung brought out mobile phones and digital TVs that showcased the company’s technical expertise. It wanted the brand to be “in users’ presence 24/7.” It helps that consumers are attached to their cell phones and TVs. Most consumers carry their handsets with them everywhere, and their TV is the center of the family room. Samsung’s products all make the same reassuring tone when they are turned on. Over five years, Samsung’s brand value has jumped 186 percent and has...

...competitive edge: The electronics industry is constantly facing competition. Samsung may have upstaged Nokia with its clamshell mobile phone design but it too in turn could be blindsided by some other company. Large investments may require collaboration with competitors to reduce the risk of another technology or a different set of standards leaving a company high-and-dry. Such collaboration reduces risk in an industry where there are only a handful of competitors worldwide. 11 To reduce the chance of losing its technological edge, Samsung Electronics spends more on research as a percentage of annual revenues (about 8% of unconsolidated) than most of its competitors. One consequence is that Samsung had the smallest 1 Gigabyte device -- the YEPP YP-ST5Z -- offering MP3 player, FM radio, voice recorder, and data storage in 2004. Samsung also announced in September 2004 and industry-first 60 nanometer 8 Gigabit memory device. Besides having its own research organization, Samsung has forged alliances with many universities and even with former military scientists in Russia to tap into their electronics and physics acumen. As already mentioned, it limits the number of suppliers of core components with whom it shares advanced technology information. Finally, it has joint R&D projects with many technology companies. In 2004 alone, it formed alliances Sony, IBM, Maytag, EMC, Sanyo, and Dell while continuing work initiated in previous years with other companies. Changes in......

...Using material from item A and elsewhere, assess the view that crime and deviance are the product of labelling theory (21 marks) Some sociologists believe that crime and deviance is a result labelling which is when a label is attached to a person or group of people due to their appearance, sex, ethnicity or other factors. It is also leads individuals to believe that labelling theory can create a self-fulfilling prophecy, which is when the person begins to act according to the label and hence it comes true simply through being made. If a certain group of people have committed crime in the past they are more likely to be thought as to reoffend. Sociologists such as Cicourel investigated ‘typifications’ which are stereotypes of young offenders meaning the police focus their attentions on these ‘types’ of people. Through typifications the police concentrate on working class areas closely attaching a negative label to them. Once a label has been attached through self-fulfilling prophecy the offenders are more likely to feel victimised so may be obliged to offend again or on the other hand they may try to break the stereotype. Similarly people tend to victimised in society due to their race. Piliavin and Briar argue that police arrest youth based on physical characteristics alone. Evidence of this happening could be reflected by the trend in the 70% rise in the number of blacks and Asians being stopped and searched. Stopping and searching people can be used as a precaution...
