  1. Good article, but I found this portion of it patronizing:
    When patients do call, thank them for checking in. Reinforce efforts at every opportunity — “I’m so glad you called about…”
    Use problem-solving and experiential learning versus blame to help prevent feelings of guilt — “What do you think happened?”
    Engage family members/support person to support medication adherence and self-monitoring.
    Don’t be afraid of internet searches, but rather confirm what they have learned or offer alternate website resource

  2. Very easy to follow algorithm. In reality, our prescribing practice is somewhat dictated by what medication Pharmacare will cover.
