EPISODE TITLE: Medication Management Part 1
Haleigh: “I think it is important too, to see what patients actually value doing within medication management and then starting from there.” This episode is a conversation between two OTRs and two soon-to-be new grad OTs. The topic of conversation is about medication management and how to adapt this occupation for patients.
EPISODE SUMMARY: In this episode of NOGGINS & NEURONS: Medication Management Part 1 with Tracy Bentley Root, Haleigh Bjorkman, and Anna Kotansky, we talked about:
- What is Medication Management?
- What are common burdens related to medication management?
- How are caregivers affected by the burdens of medication management?
- What is Occupational Therapy’s role in medication management?
The job of medication management can be extremely stressful for both the patient and the caregivers. Health professionals, such as nurses and occupational therapists, have an important role in the health care system to assist caregivers with the many responsibilities within medication management. In this episode, we acknowledge the challenges of medication management and discuss how occupational therapy practitioners have such an important role in reducing the stress for patients and caregivers. Tune into the second part of this podcast with Tracy, Haleigh, and Anna to learn more about techniques and assistive technology devices that can assist with medication management.
