As practicing physicians, we are charged with caring for our patients with compassion and rigor.
Our prescribing privilege is a powerful tool to help heal our patients and a toxic means to harm them if we are careless, lack knowledge of potential drug interactions, or disregard this knowledge.
The risk of a toxic medication interaction is real considering that more than one half of noninstitutionalized adults older than 65 years take five or more different medications, and 12% use 10 or more.
The most dangerous drug combinations in the nursing home population involve warfarin interactions with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), sulfonamides, macrolides, or quinolones; angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor interactions with potassium supplements or spironolactone; digoxin interactions with amiodarone; and theophylline interactions with quinolones.
are guidelines for healthcare professionals to help improve the safety of prescribing medications for older adults.
Composed of more than 30 heme-containing isoenzymes, the CYP-450 is embedded in the lipid bilayer of the endoplasmic reticulum of hepatocytes, enterocytes of the small intestines, and, in lesser quantities, in other tissues including the kidneys, lungs, and brain.
As part of those changes the Beer Store has entered into a new Master Framework Agreement with the Province.

My first inclination is always to try to look “for the next big thing”. As you will see from the rules below, these are going to be businesses that are mostly driven by sweat equity. It can not be a business that generates any revenue from advertising. Because I want this to be a business where you sell something and get paid for it. Im not promising I will definitely invest anything.
Rather than trying to be a Venture Capitalist, I was looking for an idea that hopefully could inspire people to create businesses that could quickly become self funding. I also expect that other people will steal the idea and use it elsewhere. The idea is not just to help you, but to figure out how to help the economy through hard work and ingenuity. If you dont make your numbers, the funding stops 6. Once you get the initial funding you are on your own 10. As I find businesses I like, I will use the email address you provide before you post to get in contact with you.
The Beer Store will also add four independent directors to its board of directors and an Ombudsman will be appointed to support our fairness and transparency policies.
