RxTx is absolutely invaluable – we have it ready to go on every desktop in our pharmacy. When you have the oddball drugs, or things that you’re just not aware of, RxTx comes up so nicely with patient counselling, patient information, what to watch out for, side effects, and everything like that. It’s my major reference — well done and so easily laid out. Having RxTx at my fingertips makes things so quick. Yes, we’re all about patient care, but it also has to be efficient and it has to be sustainable. So by having good, quick, clear, concise, reliable information, we’re not having to go to the primary source information all the time. It’s really important that we can access it quickly and of course that improves patient care because we don’t know what we don’t know. It’s an amazing program. I highly recommend RxTx to anyone working in direct patient care. John Shaske, Ascent on Health Pharmacy Advisor, Howe Sound Pharmacy, Gibsons, British Columbia
Resources like RxTx are really important for practising pharmacists. As we take more responsibility for optimal drug therapy outcomes, there are different kinds of decisions that we are required to make. It’s very helpful to have electronic resources at your fingertips with which you can gain information and the ability to help make decisions when you are taking care of patients.—Stacy Johnson, Director of Pharmacy Professional Services, Safeway Pharmacy, Calgary, Alberta
RxTx is a resource that we use regularly at the pharmacy. It’s great because it gives you access to a lot of information in an all-in-one website. It has links to multiple other resources, whether it’s interactions, the CPS or therapeutics. It allows you to identify guidelines for certain conditions and to perform in depth searches on medications. What I like about it is that it’s a site that’s very dependable. I’ve never had any issues with it — to us it’s available 24 hours a day 7 days a week and it’s easily accessible on the desktop computer or mobile device.— Paul Bazin, B.Sc, B.Sc.Pharm, R.Ph Managing Pharmacist, Drugstore Pharmacy 6705 Swift Current, Saskatchewan
