Rapid Case Challenges Pharmacology

Were you aware that each year there are 1.3 million visits to emergency departments due to adverse drug reactions? Remarkably, approximately 350,000 of these cases necessitate hospitalization for further treatment due to medication-related issues. An adverse drug reaction entails an unintended and harmful response to a drug, occurring at typically therapeutic doses. Given the growing intricacy of therapeutics, the aging population, and increasing health concerns, adverse drug reactions pose a persistent challenge in modern healthcare.

Considering that everyone has family, friends, or acquaintances taking medications, this program is relevant for a wide audience, though our primary focus is on healthcare-related fields. The significance of understanding medications extends to parents, who should be informed about their children's medication, and adults, who should be knowledgeable about their aging parents' treatment. This awareness is essential for aiding and safeguarding our loved ones.


Have you ever pondered why pharmacology proves to be such a formidable subject? Embracing the entirety of healthcare, pharmacy and medicine encompass vast domains, resembling a distinct language. The challenge lies in the immense expanse of knowledge, which makes relying solely on memorization unsustainable over time. This is why I've taken on the mission of global pharmacology education—to equip us all with the capability to save lives. Join me in this endeavor to make a tangible difference.​​

Tyson Huskinson, PharmD

I was raised in a family of nurses, but I stood out as the one who pursued pharmacy school. With a lifelong exposure to healthcare and over 11 years of personal experience in pharmacy, I've witnessed the dynamic intricacies of the field. It's surprising to note that a third of the population consults five or more medical professionals annually. Despite their attempts to coordinate prescriptions, these providers often lack effective communication among themselves. As a pharmacist, I've had the privilege to oversee prescriptions from all sources, which has revealed instances where patients end up on conflicting medication regimens.

My involvement in various hospitals through work and volunteering has allowed me to witness such contradictions even within the hospital setting. In the face of ubiquitous elements like television, smartphones, and medications, one crucial distinction stands out: while the former two are commonplace, the latter can be life-threatening. Regrettably, it's also the one people tend to understand the least. I've directly observed both the life-saving potential and the perilous consequences of medications, reinforcing my belief in the power of knowledge to make a difference.
