Excellent topic that we all need to be aware of. Interactions of drugs and comorbidities in a client can have devastating effects if not followed up.

The Educator was engaging at times but the topic was a bit dry.

The session was informative. From listening to the presenter and the auto generated reflection this was aimed at senior clinicians at the level of Nurse Practitioner. However there was useful information to assist the average RN/EN. I would like to see my organisation invite patients/clients to share their journey but also see grand rounds introduced.
