Next Ask the Pharmacist chat to experiment with evening time slot
Next week you will have the chance to kick back on your couch or recliner, grab your laptop or tablet, and chat live with a pharmacist. Our next Ask the Pharmacist chat offers the chance to get your medication questions answered during primetime.
Missouri Baptist Medical Center pharmacist Duane Wesche, RPh will be available for questions from 7-8 p.m. Thursday, August 2, in a live chat featured on www.bjchealth.org. For years, Duane has answered questions submitted to the Ask the Pharmacist page of bjchealth.org as part of BJC’s Help for Your Health initiative. He receives and answers hundreds of questions a year, both in text and sometimes through video.
You may remember BJC held its first Ask the Pharmacist chat at noon back on May 10. While there were a lot of questions asked (Duane never stopped typing the entire hour), I think the turnout can be higher. Duane and I pondered what effect an evening start time would have on participation and decided to give it a try. I’ll be posting a follow-up blog entry on the results.
We’ll be using CoveritLive for this chat. In an earlier entry, I espoused the merits of Scribblelive and why it had worked successfully for our first Ask the Pharmacist Chat. After doing some more research and cost comparisons, I decided CoveritLive was a better choice for our needs.
CoveritLive allows you to sign up to receive alerts by email when the chat is going to begin. I encourage you to sign up by visiting the chat page.
Hope you can make it!
