In recent years, the field of healthcare has experienced many operational changes as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Such changes include an increased emphasis on the nation’s mental health crisis as well as a rise in popularity of value-based care. 

A value-based healthcare model determines and rewards success based on the results of the provided care. While increasingly popular, this model can be challenging for certain fields, like behavioral health. 


There are several obstacles that must be addressed before applying a value-based care model to the field of behavioral health.

  • Behavioral health suffers from a social stigma both outside and within the medical community, and is often undervalued as a result. Value-based care in behavioral health will work best once those in and out of the industry see behavioral health as one part of the overall health formula. 
  • On a similar note, many patients see behavioral health services as a distinctly separate entity than other health services. For a value-based care approach to work, awareness must be made promoting the correlation between positive behavioral health and increased physical health so that the general public starts seeking behavioral health services on the same scale as other health services. 
  • One important aspect of value-based care is the ability to measure results. However, it can be notably difficult for behavioral health practitioners to adopt a value-based care approach because mental illnesses lack clear measurable outcomes. 


Value-based behavioral healthcare can be achieved by: 

  • Offering behavioral health patients with accessible preventative care and mental health intervention programs.
  • Raising awareness about the benefits of getting an early diagnosis. Early behavioral healthcare is particularly beneficial to behavioral health patients with conditions like anxiety because a significant number of them will suffer with the condition for many years before getting a professional diagnosis. 
  • Adopting evidence-based instruments and data-sharing models that objectively measure quality care, track patient progress, and assess symptoms overtime. 
  • Staffing your behavioral health facility with qualified professionals who accept, support, and can deliver value-based care.


HealthCare Support is the premiere, national staffing resource for the healthcare industry. Our dedicated behavioral health recruiting team accesses a vast professional network to connect you with knowledgeable and skilled candidates looking for long-term careers.

Explore a New Environment Through Travel Nursing

Psych nurses dedicate their careers to helping some of the most vulnerable patients get to a place of healing and recovery. They undertake a variety of tasks to care for patients who others can’t, or simply won’t. The responsibilities of the position are some of the most demanding out of any nursing specialty and burnout can be quite common, so it is especially vital for psych nurses to take care of their mental health as they work to help others build back their own.


Sometimes in life, the best thing for our mental and behavioral health is a change of scenery.

If you are feeling burnt out from bedside care, have worked in the same facility for too long, or need a change of pace to help you keep performing your calling, travel nursing could give you the refresher you need to realign yourself and your career while experiencing something new. 

As a traveling psych nurse, you can visit destinations that you have always wanted to visit and make connections in different locations to help further your career. You can even travel with friends and family to make your job a more rewarding experience. 

Travel nursing also offers flexibility. At the end of your assignment, you can opt to go somewhere else, or, if your needs change, you can choose another path. During your travels, you may even discover a place and climate that better suits the new you and decide to stay.

How to Improve the Patient-Pharmacist Relationship

The patient-pharmacist relationship should be more than just dropping off and picking up prescriptions. Back in the day, everyone knew their local pharmacist and, in turn, they knew their patients by name. While that level of professional familiarity still exists in certain areas, there are always ways to personalize and improve the patient-pharmacist relationship to make it more than just a transactional encounter.

Prioritize Clear Communication

When you’re a pharmacist, having extensive medical knowledge is important. However, it is just as important to be a good communicator. Your patients need to feel like they can ask you questions and will receive answers that they can understand. Therefore, a pharmacist looking to improve their workplace relationships should continuously evaluate their communication skills to see if they are truly serving their patients. This could mean hiring bi-lingual employees to more effectively communicate to patients in your area. 

Be Present and Check In

Part of why the pharmacist-patient relationship has become so transactional is because most interactions between pharmacists and patients are transactional in nature. If you want to improve your relationship with patients, be more present when they are there and check in with them from time to time to make sure that they aren’t having any issues with their medications. Be sure to ask them how they are doing, and try to place names to faces if you can. Strike up a conversation, or wish them a happy holiday or happy birthday. Just make sure your conversations are about more than their medication. 

Be Available

Part of being present is also being available. All too often, pharmacists can become too busy doing other things to interact with their patients. However, there is no chance to build a relationship if you are more preoccupied on the minutiae of work to acknowledge your patient. So, when patients walk in, be sure that you take the time to say hello, answer questions, and offer a friendly smile.

Recent Changes to Pharmacist Revalidation Requirements

In October 2022, the General Pharmaceutical Council’s changes to the pharmacist revalidation requirements went into effect. Here is what pharmacists need to know about the new changes. 

Required Revalidation Records 

The required records and documents that you must now submit for revalidation include: 

  • 4 CPD Entries – It is required that a minimum of two CPD entries are planned learning activities. 
  • One Reflective Account – While there is no required word count for this document, examples tend to be at least 400 words. 
  • One Peer Discussion – Similarly, successful peer discussions contain about 400 words. 

Before drafting your documents, it is recommended that you research successful examples available on the General Pharmaceutical Council’s website. 

Current Pharmacist Standards

There are three standards that you must be aware of in regard to the new revisions. Standards one, two, and five are listed as follows: 

  1. Pharmacy professionals must provide person-centered care. 
  2. Pharmacy professionals must work in partnership with others. 
  3. Pharmacy professionals must use their professional judgment. 

Potential Consequences of Revalidation  

It is important to be aware of the consequences that could occur if you fail to submit the above listed information. Potential consequences include entering the process of remediation and administrative removal from the register. Furthermore, if you are invalidated and would like to be restored to valid status, you will be required to pay an additional fee that can total hundreds of dollars. Thus, it is best to submit all that is required in a timely manner to ensure you stay up to date.

How to Transform the Workplace Culture at Your Pharmacy Job

Pharmacists are among the most relied-upon individuals in the field of healthcare. This is, perhaps, one of the many reasons why pharmacists often report high levels of work-related stress. In order to avoid the risk of burnout, it is important to maintain a healthy workplace culture. 

Here are some ways to transform the culture at your pharmacy job into a healthy and productive environment that will benefit you, your fellow pharmacists, and your patients. 

Encourage Open Communication 

As with all aspects of life, good communication is key for harmony and productivity in the workplace. It is also an important aspect of maintaining a healthy atmosphere at your pharmacy. Conversely, lack of quality communication is known to cause significant amounts of stress at work. Therefore, encourage your staff to speak their mind to ensure they have a voice to address any issues or critiques that could improve day-to-day functionality. 

Check-In Often with Coworkers

Listening is the most important form of communication. You can take strides in improving your workplace culture by checking in with coworkers from time to time and gauging their mental well-being. You can’t expect employees, especially new ones, to feel comfortable speaking up amongst employers or coworkers that they haven’t built relationships with yet. Being the one to open the door can make a huge impact with both new and seasoned employees, as not everyone is confident enough to approach others and start conversations.

Celebrate Accomplishments 

Another aspect of a healthy workplace culture is celebrating achievements, both big and small. These celebrations don’t have to be extravagant; simply offering an employee or coworker words of praise is enough to brighten their day and uplift the mood of your pharmacy. Furthermore, by taking this seemingly small step, your employees will take greater pride in their work. 

Get Support from HealthCare Support 

If you’re looking to find a pharmacy workplace that will nurture your growth as a pharmacist, it’s time to call HealthCare Support. 

HealthCare Support is a premiere, national staffing resource for healthcare professionals. Through the use of our vast professional network and extensive knowledge of the healthcare industry, our team helps hardworking individuals discover the next step in their healthcare career.

Celebrating National Pharmacist Day

Each year on January 12, National Pharmacist Day allows us the opportunity to celebrate all of the amazing, hardworking pharmacists in our lives. As such a huge pillar of the medical field, pharmacists deserve the ultimate praise and celebration on National Pharmacist Day and everyday.

The History of Pharmacists

The field of pharmacy dates back several centuries in human history. The first pharmaceutical drug reference book dates back to 1618. However, there is some evidence of detailed Egyptian pharmaceutical records written on Papyrus. 

We also have pharmacists to thank for some of the world’s most popular sodas. Coca-Cola was invented by pharmacist John S. Pemberton in 1886, and Dr. Pepper was invented by Charles Alderton, a Waco, Texas pharmacist in 1885. So, Dr. Pepper really was a doctor! 

Pharmacists really are the jack-of-all-trades.

The Importance of Pharmacists

While pharmacists are most commonly known as those healthcare workers who fill and hand out prescriptions at grocery stores or drive-through pharmacy windows, they are actually just as involved in other aspects of the medical field. In fact, the field of pharmacy is an ever-growing collective of intelligent and inspiring healthcare professionals working at hospitals, special pharmacies, and clinics. 

Why Pharmacists Become Pharmacists

It takes a special kind of person to work in the field of pharmacy. Whether it’s the paycheck, the connection with customers, or the work environment, the factors that draw professionals toward a career in pharmacy are varied. But, above all, pharmacists have a passionate need to help others feel better. 

Of course, all reasons are valid and celebrated, as they are causing the pharmacy industry to grow and flourish across the country. 

Are You Ready to  Become a Celebrated Pharmacist?

If you feel ready to join the ranks of other inspired and passionate pharmacists, let us show you the way. 

At HealthCare Support, our dedicated and hardworking team is connected to a vast network of professionals who are all committed to finding the perfect job for you. To learn more about our open jobs and services, please give us a call at 888-219-6285.

Common Myths About Pharmacists

Like any healthcare path, a pharmacy career can be a bit daunting to jump into. Therefore, to ease your mind, we’d like to bust some common myths you may hear about working in the field of pharmacy.

Myth 1: Pharmacists Spend Their Whole Workday Counting Pills

Yes, the precise counting of pills is a very important part of any pharmacist’s job. However, the assumption that it’s a pharmacist’s only job is quite inaccurate. Here are some other main duties of a pharmacist, just to name a few:

  • Being the medication authority on any healthcare team
  • Advising pharmaceutical companies with their vast research
  • Giving physicians expert tips on prescriptions 
  • Teaching and training future pharmacists

Myth 2: Doctors Can’t be Pharmacists

This myth is wrong because you actually have to be a doctor to be a pharmacist. To practice pharmacy, you must earn a Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) degree. While a medical doctorate requires much more education than a pharmacy degree, a pharmacist should still be respected as a doctor.

Myth 3: Students Must Earn a Bachelor’s Degree Before Going to Pharmacy School

Although most PharmD students have completed at least two years of college, the pathways to earning a PharmD are more vast than simply following the common Bachelor’s degree-to-pharmacy school route. Before applying to pharmacy school, it’s necessary for  prospective PharmD students to review each college’s requirements.

Myth 4: You Must Be a Chemistry Major to Attend Pharmacy School

The differing majors of PharmD students extend well beyond chemistry. In fact, biology majors make up around 20% of PharmD students, while nearly 70% were a broad mix of majors, from English studies to business, so you don’t have to start with a focus in a medical field to end in one. Ultimately, students of all backgrounds of study are welcomed and invited to explore their interests in a pharmacy career.

With the above myths officially busted, hopefully you now feel more informed and assured on how diverse and interesting a career in the pharmacy industry can be.
