The Pharmacists' Workshop on Ophthalmology- The Saujana, Kuala Lumpur

Last Sunday I attended this free Pharmacists' Workshop on Ophthalmology organized by CMPMedica & sponsored by Allergan. It was held at Saujana Hotel, on the way to Subang Airport. The workshop is very good since it caters for pharmacists only and cover a few topics such as glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, floaters, age-related macular degeneration, red eye, dry eyes etc. The speakers are eye specialists, ophthalmologist, chief pharmacist from International Specialist Eye Centre. I enjoyed this workshop because we just have to sit down and listen, no need to do anything and just to gain knowledge. Btw, the food provided is good, although the smoked salmon fish was too salty for my liking.

Sometimes I find myself very outdated after working for few years in the same kind of environment, especially being stuck at my current kk. I really do not understand why some people can work for 20-30 years at such an old kk without getting bored of it. Before I get my transfer or resign, I'll attend more of these workshops so I can meet new people, gain some up-to-date knowledge and improve myself. I don't want to become a pharmacist who only know how to dispense cough & cold mixtures. Luckily my kk still have a full range of list A medicines with the well-known FMS around, and I'm staying at Klang Valley area. My next plan is to start my locum asap, although I know it'll be challenging. Have to learn to deal with Caucasians, haha.

What is kk, may I know? The only KK i know are the 7-eleven competitor.

It's good to attend these workshops once in a while, and when you are feeling tired of your job, it's good to attend motivation talks too. They could mean a lot.
