In this episode I give some reflections on mental health, having grown up in a culture where the topic was not easily discussed, especially in relation to men.
On the 29th of April, NHS England released guidance to all health professional bodies and NHS employers highlighting the need to undertake specific risk assessments for BAME (Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic) employees in light of growing evidence that they were likely to be more adversely affected by Covid-19, with potentially higher mortality rates. The NHS Employers’ Federation, the Royal College of Nursing, the Royal College of Psychiatrists, General Practitioners, and Pharmaceutical Publications have drawn attention to the NHS England guidance, as has the media. In addition to this, NHS England wrote an open letter to BAME health personnel on the 1st of May, assuring them of the steps that it was taking to enhance their protection in light of the identified risks.

In this post we present the last two examples from our displacement value series. We’ll be moving on to other calculation questions in a few days. In the meantime, let us know how you’ve found the displacement value series.
This is another quick example involving calculations of solid in liquid displacement values.
We continue our series of displacement value calculations. This is another example, involving suppositories where the displacement value is less than one.
In this episode we see how a displacement value less than one does not change the fundamental calculations involving displacement values. However, it does mean that the suppositories weigh less than their nominal weight.
In this video we look at how to calculate the displacement value, given other relevant parameters, when considering suppositories.
In today’s example we look at a calculation for a solid-in-liquid formulation involving the reconstitution of a powder for injection.
In this episode we continue looking at displacement value calculations involving suppositories. Pause the video after the question and try to work it out before viewing the answer.
Understanding displacement value calculations is a challenge for a large number of pharmacy graduates, especially in relation to suppositories. This example shows how to tackle one such question. Look out for our Displacement Values Masterclass for a more comprehensive tutorial.
