Worth Your Time Weekly – 3/19/18

Worth Your Time Weekly

 

I read a lot of web links each week since I’m always trying to find something interesting related to pharmacy, personal finance, or general business.

 

I’ve decided to start putting out a once weekly post with a handful of links that I read and thought would be worth your time to click on – since I’m sure you have a real personal life or don’t spend as much of it surfing the web like I do =)

1. My absolute favorite critical care conspiracy theory

I’m biased since I’m a Paul Marik wanna-be-disciple (not sure if he’d have me as a disciple officially hahaha).  This is his latest update in what the data really suggests is the best thing to do in early Sepsis and how it might differ from what the Guideline and the CMS/Sep-1 bundle require us to do.  If you work in Emergency or Critical Care Medicine – its worth going down this rabbit-hole, for sure.

2. ESI Money writes about your career choice and how it impacts Financial Independence

ESI notes that these types of links get relatively fewer reads compared to other types of his posts – but I think career choice is under discussed in the pharmacy world too.  Pharmacists tend to start at a relatively high salary, but that makes it even more important that you avoid jobs you hate doing (there is more to decide than “Hospital Pharmacy or Retail Pharmacy”).  You have a lot of options that make similar money.  Pick the one that you enjoy, challenges you, and has opportunity for advancement (assuming you value advancement beyond your current position, which some may not)

3. Interesting take from an MD about pharma money in politics

I too enjoy the annoying annual requirement from my employer to watch an “educational video” teaching/telling me that I will not accept any money from people outside my organization…

4. BigLaw’s list of big Financial Advisor RED FLAGS

I hit a lot of these flags in my pharmacy finance elective class I teach, but I like to link to people who aren’t me since linking to other people can help validate the content for people who might be on the fence.

If you don’t know how your advisor gets paid, or worse – they tell you it’s “free” advice.  Read this article… and the probably, run.
