We are continuously trying to improve our educational program and figure out better ways to effectively reach and educate future pharmacists and pharmacy technicians. We believe that by providing the tools to help instruct students about the importance of medication adherence and how to address medication adherence barriers such as palatability and taste, our company and faculty efforts can help positively impact students’ ability to address pediatric medication adherence and clinical outcomes once they are out in the real world.

Chronic Disease is a long-lasting condition that can be controlled but not cured. Acute illness is any illness characterized by signs and symptoms of rapid onset and short duration. Both chronic and acute illness affect the population worldwide. Understanding the incidence and prevalence of certain conditions in specific populations is extremely helpful, especially when we think about the who, what, why, and how of patient counseling. Educate yourself so that you can better educate your patients!

I recently read an article in the Wall Street Journal titled “Judging a Pill by Its Color.” It addressed the fact that consumers make a lot of assumptions about medication simply based on the color of the tablet or capsule. That got me thinking about all the colors we have come to take for granted in the world of pharmacy and medicine. What if the color, size or shape of the pill altered a customers medicine adherence? Color is all around us and I think we make many assumptions about the significance of what certain colors mean or imply when we see them.

I hope that by breaking down the stages below, I provide a little bit of insight to parents as to what children are actually capable of doing and understanding at these points of development. Hopefully parents can use this information as a guideline to structure age-appropriate conversations and efforts when dealing with their sick children.
