This Thursday (3rd November) there’s a pharmacy Twitter chat about using smartphones, apps and social media for help with medication, so I thought readers might like to contribute.
In a previous post, I wrote about @WePharmacists , a regular pharmacy Twitter-chat I’ve started helping out with.
This week’s topic, Medicines adherence and apps, is along the lines of the blog post Tips from others with M.E. for remembering to take medication where readers contributed their tips, so I thought it would be good to share with pharmacists whether we find smartphones, apps and social media helpful for managing our medication, such as reminders to take our meds or order repeat prescriptions, or support and information about health and meds.
You could suggest apps you’ve tried and what you look for in an app which would make it useful to you. Or perhaps you’ve tried apps for reminders or health monitoring and found them annoying, difficult, or no help. Let us know and what features would make them more useful.
You can either join in with the Twitter chat at 8pm GMT on Thursday, 3rd November, using the hashtag #WePh, or if you prefer, you could leave a comment at the bottom of this blog post and I will tweet on your behalf. You can also take part in my Twitter poll below.
