Joe advised me that I was careless, as I have forgotten to record the PRN (as needed) prescriptions and how many times the patients the medicines. For the patients with oncology, PRN prescription includes usually pain relief and opioids, that means the pain status of patients can be monitored by the amounts, or the numbers of pain relief and opioids. And sometimes PRN includes medicines for nausea, vomiting , constipattio, or diarrhea  Generally PRN prescriptions are neglected, but it is very important for the patients to check the PRN prescriptions.

While Joe and I were talking about pharmacist’s specialists, he gave me a book about the countermeasure exercise to be the oncology specialist that he wrote. And I asked him to give me his autograph on the book.  Wow! It must be my treasure.
