Jackson, NJ (PRWEB) December 03, 2014
With over 286,000 pharmacists, 355,000 pharmacy technicians, 130 colleges and schools of pharmacy and over 4 billion prescriptions dispensed per year in the U.S., just about everybody has a connection to a pharmacist or to the pharmacy profession.
Although 75% of pharmacists in a recent Drug Topics survey report being satisfied with their positions, 67% feel their stress level has increased within the last year, due mostly to increased workload, lack of staff support and increased paperwork. Many feel overworked and under appreciated by the corporations and patients they serve. For some, it’s become a “hamster wheel” environment. “Dispense-sation is a book that brings light, and humor, to some of the darker challenges faced by today’s pharmacist,” says Jim Plagakis, RPh, author, columnist and blogger.
Dispense-sation A Pharmacist’s Rx for a Laugh! provides a lighthearted and humorous remedy to this challenging situation through jokes, anecdotes and cartoons, all categorized by issues that the community pharmacist faces daily. Through it all, the book makes clear how indispensable pharmacists are to their patients and to the health care system. Dispense-sation A Pharmacist’s Rx for a Laugh! is a prescription for pharmacists to get of their feet, take a break and have a laugh, and should be on this season's holiday shopping list for everyone with a pharmacy professional in their life.
