Lui Franciosi on the Importance of Following Prescription Directions for Pain MedicationPain disrupts everything. It can be distracting, overwhelming, or altogether unbearable. Whether chronic or acute, chances are that the pain is manageable—if you follow your doctor’s directions. Lui Franciosi is a leading pharmaceuticals expert, consultant, and adjunct professor of pharmacology at The University of British Columbia in Vancouver. He served for several years as the Chief Operating Officer at Verona Pharma, using his academic experience and business acuity to direct a major organization through the minefield of Canadian and international pharmaceuticals. Failing to Follow Direction Can Be Dangerous More than one third of medicine-related hospitalizations occur when a patient fails to take their medications as directed by their doctor. Pain medication in particular can come with some serious side effects, both physical and behavioural. Your Doctor Knows Best When it comes to pain medication, your doctor may recommend taking the medication at regular intervals such as every eight hours. This may be a strategy to keep your pain in check and not allow it to spike over the course of your day. Organize Your Medications by Dosage Severe spikes in pain can also result in patients impulsively taking more medication, which leaves them in danger of complications. Particularly in the case of opioids, an effective but highly addictive pain medication, following your doctor’s directions can be the difference between relief and destructive dependence. Lui Franciosi says that not following your doctor’s directions while taking your pain medication can result in added discomfort or even a trip to the emergency room. In serious cases where opioids are part of the treatment program, addiction can become a risk. Always consult with your doctor if you are struggling to take medications as directed.

Lui Franciosi Explains How Technology Has Changed EducationTechnology has penetrated the educational realm extraordinarily, creating a series of adjustments that have impacted the role of both student and professor. Statistics show that this transformation is well-received and destined to continue: tens of thousands of education and learning applications have been built for the iPad alone, and millions of iPad's are currently used in educational institutions and schools. Additionally, 33 percent of college students within the United States are taking online classes. Although the majority of educational institutions still opt to focus on in-person classroom lessons, more of them are being drawn to the concept of online courses. Some are taking it a huge step further, offering the entirety of a semester or program to be finished without ever stepping foot into a building on campus. Lui Franciosi states that these online platforms will enable students to overcome any geographical or transportation issues that might prevent them from arriving to lessons daily and on time. All students, whether they are learning in the school itself or through online outlets, are now able to control their education using fingertips only, Lui Franciosi notes. Inside a typical classroom, students can enhance their understanding of a topic during a lesson, with tablets, laptops and cell phones all at their disposal. A large number of primary schools now provide their students with laptop or tablet. Our learning environments were one-size-fits-all establishments previously, as every student, regardless of their capabilities or unique needs, had an identical experience in school. As some students thrived in this type of setting, others endured struggles. Technology has now equipped schools with the ability to address the needs of all students. Those who are impaired in their speaking, hearing or vision are no longer limited in their quest for a quality education, nor are any individuals with social, intellectual or developmental disabilities. Traditional educational models had students seated, listening to a teacher speak or recite paragraphs from a textbook. Needless to say, it left a lot to be desired and students could hardly be blamed for tuning out habitually. Today, technology promotes greater interaction because students can view video tutorials or simulations, explore various websites and communicate with classmates immediately. Plenty of online tools are bound to be of superior assistance compared to the method of painstakingly attempting to read up on concepts in a book. Virtual communities can connect students and teachers instantly, even if they are situated on opposite corners of the globe. Have a question or concern about last week's lesson? Post it in a forum or board. Seeking feedback from a teacher? Reach out to him or her online. Luigi Franciosi concludes that technology has impacted and changed education in ways that just 20 years ago would have been unimaginable. With the continuous pace of new technology being released, the future of education is looking bright.

Dr. Luigi Franciosi on Living with Lyme Disease: What is it and how can be treated/managed?As travel becomes easier and more affordable, it is important for patients to keep in mind that certain areas are more prone to certain diseases, as is the case with Lyme disease. As the most common tick related illness, patients are advised to always keep an eye out for tick bites, or ticks still attached to the skin, as undetected and untreated infections can lead to serious complications. Lyme disease is an infectious disease caused by the bacteria Borrelia burgdorferi that is transmitted to humans through the bite of infected ticks. In most of North America, the tick is the Ixodes scapularis, the deer tick, and attachment to human skin for great than 36 hours can lead to infection. Initial signs and symptoms include a classic “bullseye” (erythema migrans) rash in the area of the tick bite, as well as vague flu-like symptoms including but not limited to fever, fatigue, body aches/headache, and respiratory concerns. A major concern of Lyme disease is Lyme carditis, which is inflammation of heart tissue, and can lead to palpitations, dizziness, or chest pain. Early detection and treatment of Lyme disease is important as it can help prevent progression to complications of disseminated disease. The mainstay of treatment is antibiotic use, with doxycycline being the most commonly used in patients 8 years and above, and amoxicillin in those below 8, and pregnant women. Preventative measures such as the use of DEET, soaking clothes in permethrin, and use of long sleeved clothing is suggested, as well as checking for attached ticks and/or bites when out in areas known to have ticks.

Dr. Luigi Franciosi Explains The Difficulties of Running Your Own BusinessIn many ways, it is easier now than ever before to become an entrepreneur. When you have an idea for a business, you can add it to an investment platform like AngelList or Kickstarter to market it to a larger demographic to generate funding, interest, and even to hire staff. The truth is, however, that running your own business still presents many challenges. For most business owners, understanding and crunching the numbers is not the most exciting thing about running a business. The leading problem that entrepreneurs have is getting the funding that they need to launch or grow their business. Newer businesses have a more difficult time securing funding than existing businesses. Nevertheless, startups can take advantage of SBA loans or unsecured personal loans. Some businesses seek help from investors. Too many entrepreneurs make the mistake of assuming the wants and needs of their customers. It is not enough to have a great product – your business needs to address a pain point in the lives of your customers. Some business owners make the mistake of growing their business by increasing their workload. The key is to make ongoing investments into your business that allow you to do more with less. These investments include adding critical software/technology, hiring capable staff members, and finding ways to lower operating costs. Despite the risks and difficulties of running your own business, it can also be highly rewarding. It can be fulfilling to work for yourself and run your own empire. It is important to remember; however, that just like with anything else, it’s not for everyone.
