The A-B-Cs of Kids and Medication: Re-Schooling Pharmacists and Families for Best Outcomes

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

Chronic and acute illness is common in school-aged children in the
United States. This requires administration of medication during the school day.
While various organizations have published guidelines on how to best manage
medication in children who attend school, no universal policies exist. This creates
opportunities for pharmacists. Each school district is positioned to create
its own best practices. Pharmacists can work with school staff, parents, guardians,
and affected youths to improve their understanding of childhood diseases
and the medications needed to treat them. Emergency situations also arise.
Pharmacists can teach parents and school personnel to recognize these situations
and provide necessary training to best respond. Pharmacists and technicians,
play an important role in coordinating care for school-aged children and
minimize the risks of missed doses and medication errors.
