Pharmacy Applied Development Skills (PADS): Home

Pharmacy Brochure

This assignment will be completed in your same group of 6 formed for your class presentation.  The topic must be selected by all members of the group and all members must contribute to the project.  You are encouraged to be creative with the brochure, but make sure it is informative and would be helpful for a patient seeking guidance on your topic.  No copying and pasting--original work only.  The rubric for this project details how you can earn points.

Your brochure can be a bi-fold or a tri-fold, depending on how you would like to organize your information.  The examples in Canvas provide a format to give you an idea.  Microsoft Word includes an assortment of brochure templates; however, you may use whatever you would like. 

Please have your group select one of the topics below and let Dr. Bellanger and Mrs. Jutila know via email as soon as you have selected your topic.  This is to ensure we do not have too many groups covering one topic.

1. Childhood vaccinations

2. Vaccinations in older adults (65+)

3. Diabetes medications

4. Hypertension medications

5. Medication safety in the home

6. How to save money at the pharmacy

7. Using over-the-counter medications or herbal medications and what you should discuss with your pharmacist

8. Smoking cessation

9. Safe use of over-the-counter medications in senior patients (65+)
