Screening and Risk Assessment
Why you should use our screening and risk assessment programs…
Screening and risk assessment enables our pharmacists to identify patients at risk of disease and provide advice and treatment plans. This does not take the place of visiting a doctor but can help in some situations.
What screening & risk Assessment services do we provide?
- Asthma Inhaler Technique – Approximately 80% of Australians using an inhaler do not use it effectively. Our team of professional staff have been trained to give advice in proper inhaler technique, helping you gain better control of your asthma. This will mean less time absent from school or work, fewer hospital visits and less asthma attacks.
- Diabetes Type 2 Risk Assessment – Type 2 diabetes occurs when the body is unable to maintain a healthy level of glucose in the blood. When a person has type 2 diabetes, insulin is either not made in sufficient quantities or is not working properly. Our pharmacists can help assist with both management of the disease, and advising on prevention strategies.
