Managing editor of The Health Media, which owns Pharmacy Today, Barbara Fountain says when the team first looked at introducing the Capture feature, the thinking was mostly to help our subscribers keep track of education articles and news stories they had read and gained benefit from.
“Sometimes you read a great article, maybe about a new software tool and think ‘I must remember to tell the team about this’, or there’s an education article that will help with a patient you are seeing, or maybe it’s an opinion piece you want to read again.
“But as we were building the function we realised, with the changes coming from the Pharmacy Council on how pharmacists will carry out professional development, Capture would be a useful way for readers to keep a track of content they find useful in their learning.
“So, Capture has been evolving as we build it. There may be more changes yet,” Ms Fountain says.
The tool is being rolled out on three websites published by The Health Media – pharmacytoday.co.nz, nzdoctor.co.nz and akohiringa.co.nz, the website of He Ako Hiringa, a clinical education platform developed as part of a joint venture to provide education to primary care clinicians on equitable access to medicines.
