Pathology in the digital era

With the launch of My Health Record, pharmacists will have greater access to patients’ medical history, including biochemistry and pathology test results. Interpreting these results, and understanding how they impact patients’ health and medication is essential to ensuring positive patient outcomes.

 

This workshop will cover common biochemistry and pathology tests, including electrolytes, immune function, liver and kidney function, and blood and other sample cultures. Pharmacists will learn how to interpret these results and apply them to practice to guide treatment-related decisions and recommendations.
