Good Morning New Practitioners,
As pharmacists, we are learners at heart. Our job requires that we constantly stay up to date in order to help provide the best care possible to our patients. So, while there are a multitude of journals, and other reliable sources available to do this professionally I have stumbled upon a new option for FUN!!

Do you have questions about the universe, a specific engine part, how to program computers, or create apps? Maybe you have burning questions inside about philosophy, DNA, or even how to knit.

Well Quora has it all!! You can post any burning question you have and individuals with experience will answer your questions. Now, it goes without saying that this cannot be used to make clinical decisions. However, it is a fun option to throw out questions you may have always wondered about and tap into resources you might otherwise not have. Some of the questions individuals ask are fascinating. It is easy for us to constantly be in our own bubbles with one-way thinking. What a neat option to seek out other view points!

"Quora’s mission is to share and grow the world’s knowledge. A vast amount of the knowledge that would be valuable to many people is currently only available to a few — either locked in people’s heads, or only accessible to select groups. We want to connect the people who have knowledge to the people who need it, to bring together people with different perspectives so they can understand each other better, and to empower everyone to share their knowledge for the benefit of the rest of the world."

Happy questioning!!

Never heard of it, i'll have to check it out. I have also found a neat app called Figure1. They verify that you are a licensed health professional and then you can post pics and questions. They even have patient cases. Also i like to read the New England Journals Question of the week, which is emailed to you and then you can select an answer and see if you are correct.
