A critical part of a pharmacist's job is ensuring the proper dose of a medication is provided to patients. They can do this by checking the dose with the patient's weight, especially with pediatric patients. If the dose is incorrect, it can cause adverse effects of an overdose or not work effectively because it is under-dosed. In this week's conversation, Jake Galdo talks with Kelsey Holder, a Clinical Pharmacist at SEMO Rx Pharmacies and PGY-1 Resident with the University of Missouri - Kansas City about the importance of collecting pediatric weight to ensure better patient care.
