    • Overview

      One of the sections of the larger pharmacies that most pharmacists shy away from is the home health care section. Most of us are comfortable selling a urinal or sitz bath. Most of us never received the training we need to sell the ambulation devices. With the help of Clinton Bieswenger, an Occupational Therapist from St. Francis University this course will make us confident in fitting crutches, canes, walkers and wheelchairs. Since 6 of 10 major falls occur in the home, we will discuss home safety tips especially bathroom safety. A thorough discussion on humidifiers and proper care and whether to even recommend them will wrap up this one hour course.
